Turner Constructions learned from its past work with Great Wolf Lodge to improve the client’s latest resort.

By Tim O’Connor

In the tourism business, success is seasonal. It’s critical to be up and running during summer breaks and holidays when families are more likely to vacation. This is why the new Great Wolf Lodge under construction in LaGrange, Ga., about 60 miles south of Atlanta, is so keen on being open by June 2018 in time for summer visitors. Any delays could mean losing the entire prime travel season.

To meet that deadline, the resort company needed a construction manager with experience and the capability to work efficiently. Turner Construction was the clear choice because the company had the knowledge and expertise in place to accelerate work on the project.

Further, because Turner has worked with Great Wolf Lodge before, the company knew Great Wolf Lodge to be an educated client that could make decisions quickly. “Us being familiar with Great Wolf as a client and understanding their decision-making gives us the comfort to cut our schedule,” Turner Account Executive A.J. Bargoti says.

When it comes to its resources and ability to perform its projects, Campanelli is neither too big nor too small. “We’re the right size for the projects we take on,” says Jeff DeMarco, president and partner in the Braintree, Mass.-headquartered company, noting that its average project is $10 million to $70 million in value. “We’re big enough to take on a $40 million job, but we don’t take on 20 to 40 projects of that size at a time. We’re small enough that each of our projects is extremely important to us and we pay close attention to every detail.”

DeMarco considers the company’s greatest strength to be its ability to maintain a steady stream of development and construction projects in the commercial sector while giving all of its clients the attention they deserve. 

“One of the biggest challenges is knowing what projects to take on in a busy market,” DeMarco says. “We’ve managed our resources in a way that allows us to be sure our clients are pleased at the end of the day and every objective is met.”

JGRQuality, speed and dependability have led to growth for JGR Construction.

By Mark Lawton, Senior Editor at Knighthouse Publishing

JGR Construction, which works mostly for general contractors, has about 10 competitors it sees on a regular basis but differs from them in several ways. “We focus on quality and speed, both of which are necessary for us to be successful at what we do,” Co-president and Partner Antonio Obregon says. “We are extremely dependable. Dependability in construction doesn’t come around often and it certainly doesn’t come around easily.”
