J.M. Thompson — Your Licensed General Contractor in Wilmington, NC

J.M. Thompson (JMT) has nearly a century of history in partnering with organizations in Wilmington, NC, and the surrounding metro area. Since 1921, we’ve evolved alongside the construction industry to deliver value-adding and efficient contracting services to North Carolina. From our headquarters in Cary, NC, we serve clients across the Research Triangle.

Pre-Construction Services for Commercial Construction in Wilmington

During the pre-construction planning phase, we focus on aspects that require careful planning, such as long-lead items, site logistics, and guaranteed maximum price (GMP). This process involves partnering closely with the client to define and meet their project goals. Since our pre-construction approach revolves around value engineering, we’ll align your scope, budget, and goals with your specifications.

Our pre-construction services include:

  • Long-lead item procurement
  • Constructability reviews
  • Site logistics
  • Cost estimation
  • Project timeline scheduling
  • Minority/woman business enterprises (MWBE) and historically underutilized businesses (HUB) coordination

Extensive Design-Build Coordination

We partner with a broad and well-trusted network of architects and engineers to oversee comprehensive design-build coordination. As our design-build client, you’ll receive a full portfolio of managed services under a single contract for streamlined delivery. While we manage the contract on your behalf, you’ll have opportunities to provide as much feedback as you need to get your desired results.

Under our design-build contracts, we provide solutions such as:

  • Cost control and budgeting
  • Site preparation
  • Efficient design-build phase scheduling for tight deadlines
  • Construction design-build management

Renovations From Our Wilmington Commercial Contractors

As we do in new construction, we carefully oversee every phase of a renovation or addition project and ensure clear communication among all parties. Your custom renovation or addition plan will include scheduling and coordination that aligns with your existing structures, goals, and budget.

In-Depth Construction Management

The JMT construction management approach involves close integration with pre-construction planning to control costs, schedules, and productivity.
