"What JMI has brought to our projects in their preconstruction and construction services is their insightful knowledge of the product we build and their non-adversarial teamwork approach. JMI evaluates both plans and ideas carefully, coordinates between the various groups, and presents the schedule and cost implications for each issue succinctly so a decision can be made in a timely fashion. It is a pleasure to work with such a professional group."

"With JMI's comprehensive approach to project management and construction, working with them has truly been an enjoyable experience. Working as a team with us and the Architect, JMI has brought a problem solving approach to complete our project on time and on budget. Faced with a difficult site with a steep slope and complex grading issues, JMI made all efforts necessary to respond to ongoing site issues as they arose and to propose timely solutions. They are proactive in their approach to the job overall which often translates into time and cost savings for the client. I look forward to working with them on our next project."

“This job progressed very well—a great experience. JMI’s attitude is, ‘How are we as a team going to make this excellent?’ instead of, ‘Tell me what to do?’ Their forethought in scheduling and project management has been a key element in meeting a tight schedule.”

“They are extraordinary, their communication skills are great and their attitude is excellent. JMI will anticipate a problem and say ‘We are here to listen and show you what we know’ and as a result will work on the problem and give you some options. If an issue arises, they will call and say, ‘Let’s resolve this right away.’ Their professionalism and the knowledge of the trade they’re in is their main asset.”

“What sets Johnstone Moyer Inc. apart from other contracting firms is their recognition of the importance of their involvement in the initial design phase of any development. They know that the contractor should be an advisor to the developer in guiding the design process from the outset to create cost effective excellent developments. Successful developments are the result of a collaborative cooperation of the design team, including the contractor, from the initial design concepts through construction, in order to make the most informed decisions throughout the decision process. This is JMI’s strength. They bring experience, professionalism, and innovative ideas to the design process. Over my 30 years of multifamily architectural practice, I have worked with many contracting firms, but in my experience, there are only a few firms that understand the importance of the collaborative process and, for this reason, JMI is at the top of my list of contracting firms that I would recommend to my clients.”

“Working with Johnstone Moyer, Inc. has been a very positive experience. Bill Johnstone is a very hands-on and focused team leader. He has assembled with him a very strong support staff of estimators, supervisors, and foremen. JMI works as a team player to develop solutions as the project progresses from design through construction. The project was very challenging not just from a construction standpoint but also from a coordination standpoint. Jmi has had the foresight to keep a project moving forward on schedule and on budget. I would look forward to working with JMI on many other projects that may occur in the future.”

"We have an oustanding relationship with Johnstone Moyer, Inc. In working together with JMI we feel that we have built a long lasting relationship that will be beneficial to the future of both of our businesses. In the current state of the economy in the Bay Area, it is nice to know there is a company that is as trustworthy and as professional as we believe ours is to work with.

- Bob Colla

Division Manager
Insulpro Projects, Inc.



"It is exciting to work with a contractor that not only stands behind what they say, but who you know their word is as good as a contract... they are truly concerned for their clients and subcontractors and have the project's best interest in mind at all times."

"What I most enjoy is that they take the time to review the project before and after the bid and they strategize, alongside the subcontractors, to ensure the project flows smoothly. We have run into issues on jobs and have been able to work out an equitable solution to some potentially costly problems simply by sitting down and working out the issue together. They understand the construction process, are easy to talk to, and immediately solve problems."

"It is always a pleasure working with JMI regardless of how complex the project. It is comforting to know that whenever I deem it necessary, I can call them up and have an intelligent conversation with a knowledgeable person to resolve a problem before it becomes a bigger issue. "
