Project Markets


JR Jensen was one of the primary contractors for the construction of SMI’s production facility in Superior Wisconsin. When the project’s original design bids came in over budget, JRJ worked extensively with SMI to break down the construction components and suggest not only alternative means & methods, but also alternative designs to reduce the cost of the project. JRJ then proceeded to further assist SMI by developing the details of the design revisions. While it was an arduous process at some points, the team at JRJ always remained energetic, enthusiastic and pleasant to work with. The quality of their work and overall level of cooperation was excellent and I would happily perform another project with them.
