With the successful completion of our office and warehouse remodel project we wanted to send JRCA a letter of thanks for a job well done. Because the project was a complete gut and remodel of an existing structure there was no increase in available square footage. We had many needs all competing for the limited space. The JRCA team took our list of wants and was able to help us come up with a floor plan that has met our needs and is very functional.
We have enjoyed sharing this experience with the JRCA team and would highly recommend your company to any of your future clients.
