"We had a great experience with MRJ Constructors, in renovation and expansion of our Ford showrooms, shop and parts department. This was a long-awaited project, and MRJ brings a team approach to talk through everything from permits to furniture. They dealt with the City, consulted with all the members of our team, and went through many iterations of our plans in order to build the best possible showroom for us and for our customers. They came in a month under the time estimated, and on budget. We are extremely proud of our dealership’s improvements, which created a comfortable and efficient place for our team to work, our customers to shop and a beautiful new facility in our community."

I would highly recommend MRJ in future GC work."

"As I have previously mentioned we have been very impressed with the professionalism that your entire team have demonstrated, it is rare to find such good people these days."

"On behalf of Broadway Vision Clinic, P.S., I would like to extend our appreciation and thank you to MRJ Constructors. Amidst a plethora of unscrupulous construction firms, MRJ's integrity and respect for clients was clearly demonstrated in helping us defray costs involved in an apparent latent defect in one of our pipe installation. Nearly ten years has passed since MRJ Constructors completed our office TI project-long after the statute of limitations, and arguably beyond statute of repose on latent defects. Despite this, MRJ stepped up to the plate for us by significantly mitigating our expenses in repairs to the pipe. We realize that MRJ could have simply walked away, leaving us burdened with the full brunt of the repair cost. Yet, you listened, and demonstrated a value system that should be the standard in all small businesses. Such an earnest and courageous gesture will not go forgotten; MRJ Constructors has earned our heartfelt respect for quality workmanship, and above all, a commitment to excellence."

"MRJ Constructors was hired to renovate our school's gymnasium and attached classrooms. The type of project necessitated that it be performed over two summer breaks. The MRJ team was brought onto our project during the pre-construction planning and were instrumental in working with the design team. They provided price estimating, scheduling and constructability knowledge allowing our school to set reasonable goals. During construction, the MRJ team was fantastic. Everyone had a great attitude and appeared genuinely happy and interested in producing the best possible product for our school. When problems arose, as they always do, the MRJ team was quick to offer solutions and alternatives, some of which saved us money. From pre-construction through the completion of the punch list, MRJ's expertise, organization, and can-do attitude were vital to the success of our project and I recommend them without hesitation."

Brett Leslie, Facilities Manager
"We at Ballard Pediatrics were in the middle of a major remodel of our clinic space which will double our total square footage. MRJ worked closely with us during the design phase and arrived at a Guaranteed Maximum Price that fit our budget. They have been quick to problem solve the inevitable surprises that occur in modifying a 40-year old structure. It is a pleasure to work with such an upbeat and positive organization."

"While some companies shine in specific areas, MRJ has the entire construction process down to a process that works smoothly and efficiently. We have worked together on many projects and it is refreshing to work with a company that collaborates with all parties involved as a team to complete the project within budget and on time even when pushed to a very fast track project. With consistency on all projects, MRJ's "team-build-approach" promoted clear and continual communication throughout the entire construction process. With this commitment to keeping everyone well informed, expensive surprises were eliminated. From the pre-construction stage to the final clean, MRJ delivers products of the highest quality."

"My design firm has been working with MRJ on a number of projects over the past few years. We design fitness clubs, thus most of the projects we have worked on together have been renovations of existing facilities into new fitness clubs. Their attention to detail early on in the design process is a key factor in making our client goals a reality. MRJ was able to bring value to the table through "out of box solutions". Their ability to evaluate existing building systems early in the conceptual design process enabled us to utilize this information in the final design. Having their system in our early stages saves our clients many of thousands of dollars as well as providing the ultimate nugget; completing the project ahead of schedule. This not only saved monies but also allowed these projects to generate revenue quicker. Clients love this and we look smart. We continue to push for MRJ to be a team member on other projects we are working on and would highly recommend them to clients looking for a team member that can bring the following to the process: Value, Creativity, Integrity, Leadership. When I bring MRJ on a project the clients' expectations are always exceeded and you will have the same experience."
Jeff Nagel, President
"One of the most critical goals for us when we moved into the Seattle area was to build lasting relationships with companies dedicated to helping achieve our goals. MRJ was one of the first General Contractor relationships we built. Over the past years, MRJ has delivered outstanding service. We require a contractor that can provide high levels of customer service, quality construction, accurate pricing and reliable execution. MRJ consistently assembled a team that met or exceeded our expectations in all of these areas. From early design development, initial budgeting and daily communication, MRJ continues to impress our team. We highly recommend MRJ for someone looking to be creative, honest team member that delivers what they promise."
Bob Kubichek, Sr. Development Manager
"Seadrunar Recycling was extremely pleased with your broad knowledge and complete understanding of the construction process. Your attention to detail was greatly appreciated. You listened to our requests and executed them to our satisfaction throughout the entire process. Even after construction was complete, MRJ Constructors was always available to fix the little things quickly. Your employees positive attitudes and levelheaded dispositions were valued throughout the process."
Richard Busby, Business Director
"MRJ's complete project team approach gave our clients the confidence that their project goals would be realized within the tight budget and schedule constraints. MRJ's attention to details and team approach to problem solving at all levels made working with them extremely satisfying and productive. Their ability to tap into the "real world" experience on these types of historic renovation/adaptive reuse projects, made it possible for us to deliver beyond our clients expectations. It is without reservation that we would highly recommend MRJ. It was and continues to be a fantastic experience doing business with such a professional company."

MRJ has been the general contractor for Kitsap Humane Society’s multi-phased expansion and renovation of our animal shelter facilities. Construction thus far has totaled over 10,000 sf. We have been highly pleased and appreciative of all aspects of MRJ’s work – the quality of construction, the attention to detail and planning, staying on schedule, and their excellent communication and problem solving. It’s been a strong partnership and we highly recommend them as builders.

"It is without hesitation that we offer to serve as a reference for MRJ Constructors, to any of your potential clients. During the scope of our project, we were fortunate to work with many outstanding individuals from MRJ, who brought far more to the table than mere execution of the design. Every step of the way, it was clear that the project managers and superintendents on our job were enthusiastic, engaged solution providers; more than once they offered suggestions that helped reduce costs or improved our facility. In addition to their expertise and enthusiasm for doing excellent work, Sally and I truly enjoyed our meetings with them-you hire wonderful people! Please feel free to have anyone who is "on the fence" about using MRJ contact us any time."
The Revere Group
Mark Revere, President
"MRJ performed admirably on the job. Our project was completed on time and on budget, a rarity in the construction world in my experience. The actual work performed was top-notch. In sum, MRJ did a great job for us and I would hire them again in a heartbeat".

Peter Miller, Chairman
"We recently completed three projects with MRJ Constructors. The largest of these was a remodel of our Dormitory facility. As a school, we faced a non-negotiable deadline with the beginning of our school year. The day after the Dorm students moved out, MRJ moved in. This project was a complete remodel, including abatement, new walls, new windows, new floors, power systems, data systems etc. As in any such project in a 100 year old building, there were unanticipated wrinkles. MRJ approached each of these issues professionally, never losing sight of our impending deadline. They managed their subcontractors impeccably, kept us constantly updated in weekly project meetings, and delivered our project both on time and on budget. I look forward to our next project together."

Jonathan Hochberg, Project Manager
"Your team was great to work with and I would especially like to thank Kirk Corbaley (Project Superintendent), for his steady nerve, ingenuity and on site leadership which was essential to the success of Swedish Automotive. Your team was great for seeing potential constructability issues, sharing those concerns with me and allowing for a respectful dialogue resulting in thoughtful solutions." Thanks to the entire MRJ crew and I look forward to working together in the future."

Curtis McGuire, Architect
"Several architects in our firm, including myself, have worked with MRJ Constructors on numerous commercial projects over several years. MRJ is very concerned about the performance of their entire team of subcontractors, employing only those they know have an excellent track record of successful projects. Those in our office that have been fortunate to work with MRJ Constructors, give our strong recommendations."

"The Production Network had our former warehouse, a 1928 cedar trussed structure, lifted onto a barge and moved 1/4 mile up the ship canal and squeezed onto a new site where it was renovated into 21,000 sf of first class office space. MRJ's project team was able to work from a minimal set of construction drawings and specifications, to generate countless budget updates, and to complete the project with minimal schedule and cost overruns. The MRJ team worked with myself and the entire TPN team throughout the unconventional building process to incorporate many last minute design changes and additions. MRJ was able to provide quick cost estimates on the various scenarios generated by our in-house designers. They also had the patience to manage the many permitted challenges that cropped up on every turn. The experience that MRJ gained working on such a unique project will no doubt enable them to tackle bigger and more difficult building jobs in the future. I was glad to work with the MRJ team and look forward to using MRJ again."

Dan Corcoran, Project Manager
"Many contractors can build a quality building, but a successful project is more than that. It's very important that a General Contractor is ethical, fair to deal with, and a true partner of the development team. MRJ Constructors have proven themselves to be just that. They are very concerned with keeping clients happy. I would hire them again in a heartbeat."
The Eagle Harbor Inn
Cihan Anisoglu, Architect/Developer and Owner of the Eagle Harbor Inn
"We have used MRJ Constructors for several projects here at our site over the past 6+ years. The thing that has impressed me the most is the attention to detail, extensive knowledge and commitment to doing things the right way. They have been our site go-to company for any minor or major building/retro fitting needs.”
Robert Hinkle, Facilities Manager
"I have been involved in a number of projects, including two buildings where I am part owner, using MRJ as the contractor. I have found their communication to be superior to most other contractors I have dealt with, their technical capabilities deep and up-to-date and the quality of the end result is excellent. I would highly recommend them and have no hesitancy in using them again."
Windermere of Bainbridge Island
Jim Laws, Owner/Broker
"From the beginning, MRJ Constructors exhibited a strong professional presence. They simply were able to handle any problems that arose. Their ability to work in an uncertain environment, and maintain timely developments was outstanding. The project team kept the project moving forward in a well, planned fashion. They communicated with us and kept us well informed of all developments. If you have building needs, we strongly recommend MRJ Constructors."
