COMPANY HISTORY - IN OUR FOUNDER'S WORDS
"Quite a bit has changed in the market since I started this company in 1987, in a down market, with three kids in diapers, and my wife thinking I may be nuts. We’ve gone from two employees to more than fifty, from several hundred thousand dollars in annual volume to currently more than $90 million (and growing), and I’ve proudly seen my kids grow up, become successful, start families of their own and give me the joy of being a grandfather.
Many things however have remained the same. The values I learned from my mentor early in my career have never changed: the values of unwavering honesty, integrity, and conducting business with longevity of the relationship in mind. In the end, like it was so many years ago, it comes down to simply doing what you say you are going to do and the value of the relationships you have. These relationships gave me my start, brought valuable people to work for me, made it possible to get my first bond, and lead to our first big break into the school market. Our relationships today continue to strengthen our reputation, which is more valuable than any fee we make on a job.
Over the years this company has been an extended family. It started that way with my first four Stockholders and is still the case with our employee owners today. The talent throughout this organization, complete with the seasoned veterans we still have, and the young professionals we have developed over the years into our leadership, excites me about JHL’s future. It is with great pride that I’ll watch JHL Constructors’ legacy and reputation be built."

"Without exception, I found the entire JHL staff to be experienced, well-trained, courteous, and dedicated to the success of my project. They met every challenge on this difficult and fast-paced project with a flexibility and a 'can-do' attitude. I highly recommend JHL Constructors to anyone who is in need of quality work."

"We brought in JHL and presented them with our limited budget and our grand vision. JHL completely nailed our vision and goals. They always worked hard to solve our problems and I felt like we got the very best value for every dollar on our project. I can't say enough about the professionals at JHL. I credit them with delivering a product I am not sure others could."
- Sandra Weckerly, Flagstaff Academy
"The cooperation and teamwork that JHL provides is invaluable. It has been a pleasure working with JHL and I look forward to working with them again in the future."
- Cindy Sauls, Aurora Public Schools
"We at Lord of the Hills had a very good relationship with JHL. Their management and supervisory team was the best we could have wished for. Overall, we considered the workmanship as superior, the management very professional, and the follow-up as good as anyone can expect."
- Tom Renquist, Lord of the Hills Church
"JHL not only gave us hours of their patient time in helping us through the process, but they actually came down and met with our investors and helped us seal the deal and gain our financing, which was huge."
- Chrisitanna Fogler, Rocky Mountain Classical Academy
"JHL has been a valuable partner for DRM on many projects. To say JHL has been an asset to us would be an understatement. They have an unmatched level of commitment at the principal level, an incredibly skilled preconstruction team, and top notch operations staff. They treated our budget like it is their own personal dollars at stake and we really appreciate that being a non-profit."
