Inspiring Conversations with Jason Pietruszka of JJP Construction

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jason Pietruszka.

Hi Jason, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
I was a musician that needed a job, imagine that! Little did I know that this job would become my career. I started as a demo laborer and worked my way up. From that first job, I moved on to become a site supervisor pretty quickly. But I must admit, I wanted to get my hands dirty. So I tried my hands at most trades. I learned how to set tile and walk an inspection. Learned to read plans and handle city runs. I got my contractor’s license and partnered with a builder. We grew a company that developed over 100 single-family luxury homes. Eventually, we parted ways and I’ve been building on my own ever since. It’s been twelve years now and I’ve never looked back. I’ve just always enjoyed what I do. Today, our business does about 15 new construction projects at a time. We have an exterior renovation division and we just opened up our remodeling division as well! We handle everything from Interior and Exterior design to architectural and the construction process! getting everything done with one team and under one roof makes the process super simple for our clients. We really like making what we do look easy!

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I’ve been very fortunate. Throughout my career, we really only saw a rise. Construction has gone up, Real estate values have gone up, and with the economy doing very well, new construction demand has gone up too. Of course, I’ve had struggles. There were times when money was tight or deals were difficult to complete or close. But things always found a way to work out.

As you know, we’re big fans of JJP Construction Inc. For our readers who might not be as familiar what can you tell them about the brand?
My company is called JJP construction Inc. We are a general construction company that builds luxury homes. Over the last 12 years, my company has only built for developers. Every now and again, we will build a house for a client. But more often than not, our houses are spec homes. We are known for our attention to detail, our quality of craftsmanship, and our designs. I’m most proud of what I’ve built as a company. The culture of my company and the working environment. We push hard, but we’re proud of what we accomplish. I think what sets us apart is our process. We organize all of our information, and we have a process in place to execute our projects in the most productive way. On average we can build a house a lot faster than most and without sacrificing quality. This also has a lot to do with the relationships we’ve built with our trades over the last decade. As the business has grown, we are now taking on more projects and including more client-related projects which is something we are very excited to start offering.

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
I think my whole team deserves credit! Mainly my family. They do so much behind the scenes to make sure our systems are running smoothly. I always joke that I forget who is in charge because I depend on them so much. But thankfully, our team has continued to grow and everyone in our company is integral and truly appreciated!
