"We have two 15,000 square foot office buildings under construction in Fort Myers. Due to the high standards we were looking for I needed to choose a contractor with a reputation for quality, responsiveness and commitment to customer service. I knew right away that I wanted J.L. Wallace, Inc. as the general contractor. We are 8 months into the project now and they have exceeded all our expectations. I have admired the professionalism, experience and genuine concern from all of their staff."

Not only did you bring the project in on time and under the base budget, but the professionalism that you and your people exhibited was outstanding.

This was perhaps the most difficult construction project we have done because we were trying to operate the business simultaneously with construction in progress. The efficient manner in which contractors were scheduled to accommodate our doctor schedules and the professionalism that was displayed by all subcontractors while they were here was due to the dedication of your project manager and site superintendent.”
