BY LUKE GILLESPIE n 1997, Bob Jossart and business partner Joe Maddy had a vision to build a construction company that provides a better and unique experience to its clients. They created RJM Construction, emphasizing a team that would go beyond the basic principles of delivering projects on time and on budget. “We decided RJM would help clients define a great construction experience,” Jossart says. Since formation, the company has become the 12th largest general contracting firm in the area, according to Minneapolis-St. Paul Business Journal, and averages $120 million in revenue annually. Last year, RJM merged with Bloomington, Minn.-based United Properties Construction Services. Jossart notes that the merger brings together 25 years of construction experience. RJM says it concentrates in several markets, seeking to develop relationships with clients who appreciate a partner dedicated to their interests. The portfolio for RJM includes projects for healthcare facilities, tenant interiors, renovations, community centers and commercial developments. “We are a general contractor of high-quality, service-oriented and a team player,” Jossart says. “[Clients] come to us for the tough jobs.” Crosstown Medical Center In May, RJM began construction on Crosstown Medical Center, a 70,000-square-foot, fourstory medical office building in Edina, Minn. A five-level, 144,000-square-foot parking structure is also being constructed in conjunction with the medical facility. The office building is being constructed with glass, precast concrete and stone, with the parking garage being constructed out of precast concrete. One difficulty RJM has had with the project is that the water table is only nine feet deep. Jossart says it took some time to work out how construction was going to proceed with the shallow water table. In collaboration with the CONSTRUCTION-TODAY.COM OCTOBER 2009
