As a young man, Justin Phelps found himself gravitating toward a career in construction. He admired the companies who had built landmark structures in the area. Now, 10 years into his time as president and CEO of JM Phelps Construction, Phelps has joined their ranks.

JM Phelps Construction specializes in small retail and light industrial projects including gas stations, restaurants and marinas.

While Phelps admires and aligns with the work ethic, quality and consistency of seasoned contractors, he considers his team to be a new generation of contractors that specializes in innovative and tailored design solutions customized for individual clients.

Phelps got his start with gas stations and smaller retail spaces and restaurants, but quickly became known for building not only quality buildings, but also strong  relationships. On the strength of that reputation, he has landed projects including the Powder Room shooting gallery in Panama City Beach, Busy Bee in Panama City Beach and the Treasure Island and St. Joe marinas.

Phelps hopes to expand his activities to include medical facilities and multi-family buildings.

JM Phelps Construction is well versed in costs and system operations and is adept at providing analysis related to materials and construction methods. This keeps them competitive and in sync with client budgets.

The company communicates expectations to its subcontractors prior to submitting proposals for jobs, ensuring a harmonious relationship among itself, clients and trades people. It looks for opportunity to engage minority businesses in its projects.

Phelps works to instill a sense of family in his family-owned and operated business. He is backed by reliable managers whom he entrusts with the operations of the company.

Phelps enjoys getting to know not only each client’s project, but also their business and outside interests. Clients are not just another face or name; they are valuable and valued partners.

“I measure success by relationships,” said Phelps. “Anyone can do a one-and-done project. Repeat business and lifelong friendships with clients define my success. Relationships become resources.”
