Superintendent

Having started in the construction industry in 1977, Charles brings his 40+ years of experience to JTM. After joining JTM in 2020, Charles specializes in finished units coming together. What Charles likes most about his role as a superintendent is all the details required to get from framing/rough-in to finished/punched out, ready to live-in units. His favorite part of the project is completion because that’s when the owner starts to benefit from their investment.

One of Charles favorite projects that he’s worked on was the Dupont Civic Center – a small campus for Dupont’s center of government, city hall, fire department, and police department.

Something interesting about Charles is that he grew up on a farm in Montana. This would explain his love for skiing, canoeing, camping, biking, and pretty much anything outdoors!

You could say that he is genetically drawn to design and construction—a creative individual with a strong fine arts background and an experienced carpenter. As a VDC Coordinator, he helps clients visualize the end goal and collaborate with design teams and construction professionals using virtual design software to transform a digital structure into reality.

He enjoys getting into the details and finding solutions for constructability issues, such as creating a Revit Model for self-perform teams. The model supported checking slab edge accuracy and occasional embed placement. No surprise this construction geek’s favorite part of a project, the implementation, and execution phase, where you see all the planning coming together.

Anthony is a hands-on craftsman working on his projects outside of work. Family is also important spending time with his fiancé, parents, and siblings is essential.

Doing so means that we’ve done our job for the last 12-18 months of preconstruction to get the job to work within the terms set by all parties.

Since joining JTM construction in June of 2022, Kyle has appreciated JTM’s seller/doer model of business, and the proactive approach we take to building.

One of Kyle’s favorite projects in his career was the SRPMIC Justice Center. It was a highly finished tribal court building for the Salt River Pima Indian community. The fantastic owners who appreciated their work made this project stand out. Secondly, building judicial and jail systems was a new challenge, especially with custom finishes. Lastly, the team had to work hard and be creative to match the owner’s vision and requirements, as there were obstacles to work around along the way.

Throughout his time here thus far, Curtis loves that JTM feels like a family where everyone is supportive. This company has made him feel valued and never questioned whether he’s just another number in the corporation.

Curtis’ favorite project working at JTM is the new Ovation Apartments. He thoroughly enjoyed the team he worked with and the pure size of the project.

Although he loves to see the finished product, his favorite part of the project lifecycle is the beginning because it frames the perfect picture of the job’s appearance before any construction occurs. He can then compare and witness all the hard work that was put in from getting it from start to finish.

Out of every project he’s worked on, Travis’ most memorable project was the Georgetown Brewery, as it was challenging yet rewarding. The challenge they faced was the fact that it occupied an entire work cycle. From structural upgrades, a warehouse expansion of 7000 square feet, and building out a tasting room; the facility continued to brew and batch beer without interruption. However, it was rewarding to see everyone who participated or watched their process appreciate the work that was done.
