Take for example the relationship Construction Pros of NJ has forged with RPM Development Group based in Montclair. The award-wining General Contractors have hired Construction Pros for various trades on multiple projects around New Jersey. “RPM is a great customer who offers us tremen- dous repeat business and the relationship is reciprocal,” says Construction Pros Managing Partner Al Best. “We have handled wood fram- ing, insulation, drywall, finished carpentry trim, exterior Hardie fiber cement siding, Nichiha fiber cement siding and EIFS stucco systems.” Amber Delaney, Construction Supervisor at RPM, gives them the seal of approval. “Construction Pros is one of our key subcon- tractors,” Delaney says. “Al Best and Brian Pires always conduct themselves with the highest degree of professionalism.” Constant communication is what sets Con- structions Pros apart, according to Best. Project supervisors make themselves available to the client, whether by phone, text or email. “When they call, we pick up and they get a response,” says Best. “They get an answer the same day.” Best also stresses the importance of working well together before stepping on the job site. “Fifty percent of the job is done before you get on site,” he says. “Then, it’s show time. You have to be ready to perform.” This page: Two five-story mixed-use buildings at Tony Galento Plaza were featured in a New York Times article on the remaking of downtown Orange.
