Still JRF After All These Years
05/07/2014 // By JRF Construction
This week marks 15 years since we set the first plumb line as JRF Construction. And what a fifteen years it’s been—breaking ground, putting up buildings, and growing the JRF family.
There’s something incredibly rewarding about being in construction, to be able to drive around our communities and see the buildings we’ve built, to know the people they were built for. It can also be challenging, and it takes no small amount of grit to succeed. So we take a certain pride in being able to say after 15 years, “We’re still here, we’re still building, and we’re stronger than ever.”
Over the years, we’ve overseen 100s of building projects across a variety of industries—hospitality, retail, commercial offices. We’ve built for all kinds of people in all kinds of places, from rural Michigan to bustling urban neighborhoods in Indianapolis and Nashville. And that has afforded us the experiences and the opportunities to realize who we want to be as a company.
Built Around You
You might have noticed our logo got a bit of an update recently. The past few months, we’ve had a lot of conversations among ourselves and with our customers about who we are and why we care so much about putting up good, strong buildings.
What we came to is the people we build for—not only our customers, but their customers. Every person, every business, and every community is different. Likewise, every project should be built around what makes them unique.
That’s where our new mission comes from. It seems simple, really. It’s something we’ve always known and have always tried to achieve. But now, we’re making it a point to put it front and center as something to strive for, something to hold ourselves accountable to.
And so we want to thank you for the past 15 years. We hope and believe that we made them the best they could be, not only for ourselves, but for the people and the communities we have built for.
