Living Spaces

At J.M. Thompson, we’ve been providing general contracting services since 1921. We’ve established an excellent reputation for completing high-quality work that meets the expectations of our clients. Headquartered in Cary, NC, in the heart of the Research Triangle region, we focus on commercial building projects in the Raleigh-Durham area as well as the rest of the state and South Carolina. One of our areas of expertise is the construction of “living spaces,” such as apartment buildings, condominiums, senior living facilities and mixed-use development.

Apartment Construction Planning and Much More

As a full-service contractor, JMT can handle every aspect of your project. We have extensive experience in planning apartment, senior center, condominium construction projects and more. View the examples of our senior center construction management and condominiums general contractor projects. Specific services we offer include preconstruction, general contracting, construction management and design-build. Regardless of the service, we’ll guide you through the entire process from start to finish.

Apartments, Senior Living Centers, Condominiums and Mixed-Use Development Preconstruction Services

The preconstruction phase encompasses a series of preparation steps, such as cost estimating, budgeting, scheduling and site logistics planning. Our in-house estimating and technical professionals understand the importance of each of these services in laying the foundation for a successful outcome. We also view them as an opportunity to establish a sense of trust that sets a positive tone and fosters collaboration and teamwork for the duration of the project.

Construction Management

We take a proactive approach to the management of construction projects for living spaces. We accomplish this by keeping the lines of communication open between all the construction team members and project stakeholders from the planning phase through the completion and delivery steps. Examples of our construction management services include planning and constructibility reviews, scheduling control, progress reporting, quality control and safety management. We understand we are building future homes and take pride in our quality control program. We build mock-up units when possible, so we can all agree on standards.

We Can Also Serve as Your General Contractor

J.M. Thompson can take on the role and responsibilities of a general contractor for your living spaces building project. We work with all the top subcontractors in the region and can handle the hiring, supervision and management of their activities. We’re also familiar with the situations that may arise during construction, such as material expediting and change order management. With our unwavering focus on quality, we’ll implement the most stringent quality control procedures to ensure the work meets your highest standards.

Design-Build Services for Living Spaces

A design-build delivery system enables one contractor to lead the mixed-use development, apartment, condominium or senior living construction planning phases and other project steps. As the owner, you’ll benefit from a more streamlined approach to project administration and management. You’ll also need to enter into only one contract for all your design and construction services.
