What Our Clients Say About Us

I have been pleased to work with JBPro on many successful jobs, from minor subdivisions, gated residential communities, to student rental projects encompassing full city blocks. I have been extremely impressed with their team approach to value engineer our projects. I can’t say enough how invaluable our relationship with JBPro has become–they seem to find ways to help us achieve the impossible.

We have worked with JBPro for many years. They have been an important part of many of our projects’ success and the quality of their work has always been excellent. We have relied on their strong engineering expertise and continue to be extremely pleased with their knowledge, teamwork with our staff, and ability to integrate their drawing packages with our team. We recommend, without reservation, JBPro to any client seeking great results and fantastic teamwork.

Since we started working with JBPro, they have been an instrumental part of our team. Through all aspects of the project, they are quick to respond, knowledgeable, and willing to work through any issues as they arise. We value our relationship with JBPro and everything they bring to our projects.

I’ve used many great surveying companies over the years, but no one responds as quickly as JBPro. Their work is excellent, and I always can trust them to make our deadlines.

For over 30 years, we have been privileged to experience JBPro’s dedication and professionalism. They are the hardest working engineering company in North Central Florida with an uncompromising commitment to getting it right. Their team is always up for the challenge of creating beautiful and successfully built environments in our area.

I’ve worked with JBPro for almost 15 years, and they have designed numerous successful projects for our company. They creatively solve big-picture problems and detail-oriented issues, using their deep understanding of local codes and their close connections with the planners who enforce them. This gives our team the ability to negotiate solutions that make our projects look great while satisfying regulations in a cost-effective way.

We have provided transportation support services to JBPro for many years and supported their efforts on numerous development projects throughout Florida.  Their company maintains the highest professional standards of quality work and timely delivery of reports or final products to their clients. We know the best interests of the client will always be the focus of their work product. When asked for engineering company referrals in North Florida, we always recommend JBPro.

Working with JBPro and their staff is always a pleasure. They handle every project with a sense of professionalism and a collaborative spirit. I’ve worked with their team for over 8 years on countless projects and can say without reservation that they are reliable and make every client feel like a priority.

JBPro was integral in developing the 4-restaurant anchored Colonnade at Gateway Crossing. They surveyed, master planned and permitted the entire 28-acre mixed-use development. Their relationship with local, state, and federal agencies and their understanding of the site development approval process was invaluable. JBPro took a holistic and cost-effective approach and proved extremely responsive when providing us ongoing site layouts as we developed, leased, and sold our development parcels. I highly recommend the JBPro team and would not hesitate to use them again.

Over the last 30 years, we have developed hundreds of projects in over 40 states. We have literally hired and/or supervised multiples of hundreds of engineering firms in the process of creating and developing these projects. In that connection, and based on our experience, I would like to clearly endorse JBPro as “the best of the best.” In short – Jay and his team are all phenomenal and I cannot recommend JBPro highly enough. They are the best I have seen. Hire them. (I sure will!)”
