I have been working with general contractors for over 20 years on real estate office retrofits and new office build-outs and I have never worked with a team as professional as Tom and Lucas.  The organizational process for a multi-phased project was well planned and the attention to detail far exceeded my expectations.  JD Beam is a quality general contractor that I would highly recommend for future projects.

We have had the pleasure of working with JD Beam on multiple projects in the Greater Raleigh area, and they have consistently shown themselves to be an engaged partner, from due diligence through grand opening. They understood our underlying goals and applied their knowledge and expertise to achieving our goals. We were very pleased with their responsiveness to our questions or concerns and the straight-forward manner in which issues or problems were communicated and resolved, at every level. It is no coincidence that we’ve partnered with them on multiple projects.

Having recently completed the ABB 90,000 square foot tenant improvement project in the Alliance I building on Centennial Campus at NC State University, I now have the time to reflect upon what a great opportunity it was to work JD Beam as the general contractor for that project.  The communication was timely, their suggestions regarding a better way to build the project, and their attention to detail resulted in few surprises and an excellent project. In every respect, the project team was extremely helpful throughout the project – from the owner to the chief estimator to the superintendents to the Beam project manager.  They were on top of the scheduling, in a timely way reminding us of the various decision points needed to keep the job moving.  Despite the several changes we made throughout the job, we were able to come in on time and within our budget.  They provided quality work, and completed our punch list either before we could present it to them, or immediately after submission without discussion. No question, they are at the top of my list to consider for any future project.

Glenaire was very happy with the work that JD Beam performed for us.  Our project had the potential to be a very difficult one due to the site constraints and proximity to our resident’s homes.  We were impressed with John and Joe and their focus on customer service.  They were outstanding communicators throughout the job.

We had the pleasure of working with JD Beam as a design-build team on the Endeavor Charter School project. JD Beam worked hard to expedite the construction process to meet the time constraints of the client. They made it very easy to collaborate as a team, creating a quality product that met the client’s expectations and budget.

Just wanted to thank your group Dennis, Robert and Joe for a job well done, ” no punch items” at all. This was another special Highwoods customer that was very pleased.

Joe Bass, Project Manager, Highwoods Properties,

The Gregson renovation was a great success for our company. J.D. Beam, Inc., the General Contractor, did an excellent job of controlling cost, delivering the project on time and more than 10% below budget. Significant savings were realized through Beam’s involvement in aspects of design ranging from structural steel to interior layout of bathrooms and corridors. Further, an ongoing eye for efficiency and cost reduction contributed to effective use of funds.
Continuous, high-quality communication kept the owner’s rep in touch with progress daily.  I look forward to the next opportunity to do a project with Beam.

JD Beam’s team worked quite well with Raleigh Charter High School, when we reconfigured a fifty-year-old building on Glenwood Avenue. We wanted to preserve many of the new building’s historical features and to capture a sense of our previous historical site in our new home. In JD Beam, we found a patient, supportive, and innovative partner who contributed to the spirit of place in our new home. JD Beam worked with our team to make our school a functional and welcoming space. They came in on time and under budget for us.

While at Capital Associates, I hired J.D. Beam to build a series of three day care centers for our client, Bright Horizons.  The team worked well together and we delivered all of the buildings on time and on budget.  Glenn Kistler brings so many skills to a successful construction project:  a no nonsense attitude, in-depth industry knowledge, respect from the subcontractor community, high ethical standards and a team approach.  I’ve never seen him identify a problem on a job for which he didn’t have a recommended solution.

JD Beam Inc has been a long term partner and one we are extremely proud to recommend. Since our first hotel project in 1995 till today we continue to share common vision and quality standards. Our projects have been completed on time and within budget and many have won multiple awards for Design, Construction and Operations. Our Hilton and Marriott brands are recognized frequently for exceeding guest expectations. JD Beam has worked with us hand in hand to achieve these results and set the standards for all other contractors to follow.

After reviewing the updated budget for the entire restaurant this evening, I realized once again how valuable your services have been.

The Beam team was very constructive in value engineering.  Work was done at the cost quoted, and they were very reasonable with regards to changes.

Your hard work and that of your men brought the project to completion on time and made it possible to move in and begin serving more people earlier than anticipated.

You must know by now that you have an extremely good reputation within the community.  I spoke with at least 8-10 people who had dealings with your company in the past and they all had the utmost respect for the work and professionalism of your company.  Our new office looks great and functions very well.  Your scheduling allowed us to keep open throughout the job so we could continue to serve our patients.

Their Design / Build approach was a great asset to my company. Beam and their subcontractors helped to identify and control any exceptional costs early on, thus allowing us the opportunity to make budgetary design changes during the drawing process, avoiding lost time.

I would not hesitate to hire J.D. Beam again to perform another renovation or construction of a new building. High quality and integrity at all levels were abundant.
