What People Are Saying
"I would not hesitate to use JM Coull for our future projects, and can highly recommend you to anyone needing your services… Thank you for truly Building our Vision."
John S., President, Interstate Specialty Products

"One month into the pandemic, Web Industries had one of the only production-ready facilities in North America for manufacturing rapid COVID-19 antigen tests. Although we could start production within weeks, our capacity was limited to a 2,500 sf dry room and a facility designed for fewer than 100 employees. Enter JMC. Over the next 10 months, as we ramped staffing from 50 to 500 employees and production from zero to millions of tests per week, JMC expanded the building and added 12,500 sf of new dry rooms, 900 sf of white room manufacturing, electrical, air, plumbing, septic and other infrastructure, mezzanine offices, and new parking. They did all of this while maintaining strict COVID protocols in an active medical-grade manufacturing environment. As our customer noted, we were "building the airplane while flying it." JMC's professionalism, flexibility, and get-it-done approach were game changers for Web. Together, we delivered millions of tests at a time when they really made a difference to bringing the pandemic under control. Thanks to everyone at JMC and your subs. We could not have done it without you."
Michael Q., VP & Program Manager, Web Industries

"We continue to be impressed with the commitment and professionalism shown by the staff at JMC and your contractors. This dedicated team of experts, coupled with your attention to detail led to your completing the project in a manner beyond our expectations. The entire facility has had outstanding reviews by our employees, customers, suppliers, and investors and has been universally regarded as truly a "World Class" corporate facility. The Class 1000 Cleanroom was so well designed that even our customers are using it as a benchmark for their expansion plans (truly a measure of success in itself)."
Mike W., VP of Operations, Brooks Automation

"JMC worked with us every step of the way, supporting our mission for the fully accessible and inclusively designed museum and Discovery Woods nature playscape, helping us transform our vision into reality. This was a special project and served as a "first" for both of us. I believe that we were successful because of a genuine partnership that was formed between the Discovery Museum and JMC from the very beginning of the project."
Neil G., Chief Executive Officer, Discovery Museum

"Having worked closely with you and Primetals over the past year, we understood the challenges with constructing the building in such a tight timeline. Your team met these challenges head on, and both Scannell and Primetals now have a state-of-the-art, functional, and modern facility we can be proud of for years to come." Mike S., VP Project Management, Scannell Properties

"It was with great pleasure that I have just now approved the final invoice for the new 193 Resist Autofill Project successfully completed here in Marlborough by your team. There were many challenges through the course of this project from engineering changes, Dow modifications and some difficult contractor coordination that demanded management skill and technical expertise to overcome on the part of your people. They did so with professionalism and a steadfast focus on the Dow goals. You, your team and JM Coull, Inc. should take pride in knowing that you have, once again, provided Dow (formerly Rohm and Haas, formerly Shipley) with a valued job well done." Frank N., Dow Capital Projects,
Dow Chemical

"I wanted to express my appreciation for the high quality of work and the performance of the management team JMC assembled to construct the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services building in Lawrence, MA. The efforts of all have made this a very successful project that has exceeded the expectations of the tenant for the Lawrence building. Thank you for helping us reach this goal and for delivering a high quality facility that all can be proud of."
Ed M.,
Senior Construction Manager, JDL Castle Corporation (owner's project representative)

"Designing and constructing a certified "silicone free" cleanroom was a challenging high risk job that required maintaining a positive attitude to do what it takes to get the job done. Your entire organization is to be congratulated on a job well done. This praise comes not just from Kollsman and the other companies that have teamed with us on the SELRD program, but from a neighboring competitor that recently toured our new cleanroom."
Leland C., Senior Facilities Engineer, Kollsman, Inc.

"From the very first meeting to the turnover, every aspect of the project went smoothly and on schedule. This was a very challenging project with many complex drivers - a project that could not have been completed without your team's construction expertise. Medtronic would not hesitate to use JM Coull for our future projects and can highly recommend you to anyone needing construction services. Thanks to your team we are in and now manufacturing our products in our new home."
Jim H., Facility Manager, Medtronic

"On behalf of my team at Vitasoy/Nasoya I wanted to write a short note to you to say thank you for a job well done. It is a testimony to the professionalism of the JM Coull group that our project was completed on time and on budget. More importantly, you and your team were able to develop the immediate rapport with our group which contributed to such a successful and cost efficient installation. It is my hope that this construction project will be the first of many projects as Vitasoy continues to expand the Ayer Site. Needless to say, JM Coull will be our valued partner in the development and construction of our expansion efforts." John W., Plant Manager, Vitasoy/Nasoya Foods USA, Inc.

"JM Coull's representatives all acted as consummate professionals, who rose to meet each day's challenges. They demonstrated daily, their dedication to the project by performing whatever job was required to accomplish the task at hand. Their expertise, attention to detail, willingness to share their knowledge, and above all, work as part of an integrated team is a credit to each individual, as well as to JM Coull."
Dann S., Facilities Project Manager, Textron Systems

"Your firm's ability to handle the design and construction of this state-of-the art wafer fabrication facility from inception to completion is to be commended. Our project specifications, including the most stringent temperature, humidity, vibration, outgassing, sound, and cleanliness (class 1) are beyond anything we have required in the past. Your firm was able to meet each of them with quality engineering, detailed planning, and precise execution of those plans."
Lou L., Corporate Director of Facilities, Shipley

"I want to thank you for the exceptional work that your company performed for us during our facility upgrade and installation of cleanrooms. The task at hand was not an easy one in that it was important that our manufacturing operations not be impacted while you were doing your construction. This required close coordination and an open line of communication between you as cleanroom contractor, the designers and the owner. This was achieved through the cooperative effort of your entire company. All of the work performed was of excellent quality, and all project milestones were met on time."
Robert S., Director of Facilities, Bruce Technologies International

"JM Coull developed, implemented and enforced a very detailed Site Specific Safety Policy and Guidelines Program, which I believe was very effective in addressing Safety in a construction project atmosphere. JM Coull's Project Manager and Site Supervisor were
very instrumental with the day-to-day Safety aspects of the
Safety Program."
John F., Environmental Health and Safety Coordinator, Alpha Industries, Inc.

"The suggestions, creativity, resourcefulness, and craftsmanship demonstrated by your Site Supervisor and other members of your staff should be commended. Your employees over extended themselves in making the project run smoothly with a minimum amount of problems, reflecting dedication, professionalism, excellent coordination, and implementation of a very aggressive schedule."
William D., Architectural Facilities Engineer, The MITRE Corporation

"We appreciate the courteous, principled, and efficient way in which you conduct your business. From the very beginning of the project, we felt you gave us honest, straight-forward advice, assisted us in cost control throughout the project, even in face of unforeseen difficulties with environmental and foundation issues, and then proceeded to deliver a building ready for move-in eleven months from authorization to proceed. We are pleased with the new facility, and pleased with our experience with JM Coull."
Neil H., Partner, Moulton Street Associates

"The commitment to the project from yourself, your Project Manager, and the entire JMC organization was apparent throughout. I would like to specifically commend your Superintendent for an outstanding performance from beginning to end of this difficult, multi-phased project…Thanks again for all of your help, and I will be looking forward to working with you again on future projects." Marc G., Facilities Project Manager, Millipore Corporation
"I want to again extend my thanks to you and your management team for being a critical part of the success of this project. I want to especially thank you for the Project Manager who lead your team. You both will be long remembered by those of us who served on the BEC for your community leadership and dedication to a truly charitable cause." Joan P., Construction Committee Chair, Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry, Inc.

"As you know, the site area was developed in the 1840's and planned as the nation's first industrial city. Testimony to this concept is the massive mill buildings that line the Merrimack River, and canals. Of course the historic nature of the site led to some unique problems. Poor soil, a combined sewer, area density, winter conditions and constrained site encouraged a team effort in solving these complex issues with which we were faced. Your team's approach to each and every issue was always positive and focused on getting to the best solution…JM Coull's professionalism and leadership were instrumental in the successful completion of this project, and we enjoyed working with your team to make this project a success. We look forward to the next project with JM Coull."
Scott R., Principal, Gorman Richardson Architects, Inc.

"JM Coull's willingness and ability to meet the construction deadline despite unforeseen obstacles allowed Medtronic to minimize disruption to operations and ensure a smooth transition. I would not hesitate to contact JM Coull, Inc. regarding other projects in which we would be involved. I look forward to the opportunity to work together with you and your firm in the near future."
Paul C., President, Facility Planning & Management, Inc.
"JM Coull has successfully met all established completion dates and their work crews have been more than accommodating regarding any scheduling conflicts and/or OWNER generated changes. It is with great confidence that we recommend JM Coull for any construction related projects you may be planning. They are a professional group and have fully proven themselves." Donald P., Facilities Manager, Digital Equipment Corporation

"Your personal effort, and your firm's overall approach, in terms of defining the construction project and bidding on it; the timeliness, professionalism, and thoroughness at the beginning of the project and throughout the duration; the very high-quality performance and extra effort put forth by your site supervisor; the attention to detail and willingness to enter into the important phases of the job at hand to attain a very high level of performance, were all very much appreciated. Especially important was the timely initiation and completion of the project. Your firm came to us with very high recommendations and I can only support that and extend to you our thanks and, again, congratulations for a job well done."John B., President, Concord Orthopedics, Inc.

"We had a great experience working with you and the entire team. Happy to serve as a reference if you ever need one."
Greg L., Chief Operating Officer, Biomodels, LLC

"This is a letter of recognition for the outstanding service and performance levels by JM Coull Inc. in the build-out of our ATI Newton Facility. The degree of professionalism and talent skills applied during the project generated a very productive and creative atmosphere vital to the success of the project. Also established early on was the positive and friendly attitude portrayed by all your employees on all levels which is a reflection of your excellent company management techniques and programs. I personally want to thank your support and look forward to our next project together."
John L., Corporate Facilities Manager, ADE Corporation

"I would like to take this opportunity to express my pleasure in working with your company on the construction of the Inventory Control Area at Boston Scientific! I can attribute this enthusiasm more specifically to my interactions with your Project Superintendent. As the Owner of the space, I interacted with your Superintendent on a daily basis and found him to be extremely detail oriented, proactive, and desirous of getting the job done right. In my experience, this is a breath of fresh air!"
Joanne R., Senior Manager, Boston Scientific Corporation

"I thought I would take this opportunity to personally thank you for your efforts in completing the renovation/upgrade of our aseptic filling area on time and on budget. As you know, the project schedule was aggressive since we could afford minimal downtime. Your staff was professional and most cooperative. They adjusted their schedules around other ongoing production operations which could not cease. They were also of great assistance in suggesting a solution to the unforeseen problems that always seem to occur in a renovation of this type."
Gregory M., Manager - Biologics Filling and Distribution, Mass Dept. of Public Health State Laboratory Institute

"This multi-million dollar project was accomplished on time and on schedule…This project includes the construction of an 11,000 sq. ft. ISO Class 8 cleanroom for medical device manufacturing. The cleanroom was constructed, completed and certified on schedule to a level that was well above the original expectations."
Mark E., Chief Operating Officer, Vaupell

"Completion of the Coating Room at South Hadley is the seventh major project completed by JMC over the past three years without once exceeding the budget or schedule. As we move forward with additional projects in 2012, including the design/construction of the new E-Ink Center for Excellence, I am certain that the strong working relationship between JMC and E Ink will grow even stronger. You should know that your efforts have not gone unnoticed at all levels within E Ink. I have heard many positive comments relative to your outstanding achievements. I know that E Ink has asked for unreasonable completion schedules and has requested many changes without schedule relief. These projects have been critical to the e-Reader ramp up, and through it all JMC has approached every challenge with a "can do" attitude and has delivered 100% of the time."
Joe F., Vice President of Operations, E Ink Corporation

"I cannot tell you the number of people that have asked me "who built your facility." You can bet I tell them very quickly who built it and what a wonderful job they did." Stephen B., President, Ross Express

"I was particularly impressed with your firm's creative approach to the preconstruction phase as a means of greatly reducing our risk in the construction phase. You met the project challenges head on, addressing a tight site and a difficult permitting process, achieving full site plan approval in two towns. The construction phase was ably managed by your team, which brought us the best results we had hoped for - a top-quality facility delivered within budget and ahead of schedule!"
Joseph B., Chief Operating Office, Acton Medical

"The whole team was professional and approached all aspects of the project with a sense of urgency while still producing high quality work. The end result is fantastic, and I know our engineering school is proud of the project and our students in the program thoroughly enjoy their new space. The new lab enables them to conduct even more advanced research and perform real-time testing and demonstrations, helping to put BU at the forefront of this technology. Thank you again to the JMC team for a job well done. I look forward to working with you again in the future."
Mike R., Assistant Director of Construction Services, Boston University

"You should know that your efforts have not gone unnoticed at all levels of E Ink. As an example, the Vice President of Marketing in a statement referred to “the miracles you guys (JMC) have pulled out in the past three years to allow E Ink to ship a pretty awesome product in millions of units." Another executive said it even more clearly, stating, “without the super human efforts of JMC, we would not have been able to supply our customers." You should feel proud of the fact that JMC has been instrumental in the success of E Ink, and you should also take pride in the fact that the customer recognizes your accomplishments and appreciates them." Lou L., Capital Projects Rep for E Ink

"On behalf of Bruker Daltonics, we would like to thank JM Coull, Inc. for the outstanding job on the 40 Manning Road world wide headquarters building. Thanks to the design and construction management teams that proved to be key in the successful completion of this challenging fast-track project. It has been a pleasure to work with JMC from the project's inception to completion...thanks again for a job well done."
Michael M., Facilities Manager, Bruker BioSpin Corporation

"Many thanks to you and your firm for your fine work on our new facility in Danvers, Mass. I am especially appreciative of your ability to accommodate our late-stage request for an earlier completion date. As you know, the additional production capacity was very important to Beckman Coulter and our customers. I was impressed with your team's ability to make the necessary adjustments to the construction schedule while maintaining a high level of quality and delivering a first-rate facility."
Jay S., Director, Manufacturing Services, Beckman Coulter Genomics

"Three days from the time I got the project, JM Coull's professional team and I made a presentation and proposal to our corporate executive staff for a Tum-key Design/Build & Construction of our Board Room Conference Room. And we wowed them. Needless to say JM Coull was awarded the project. The Board Room was converted from a small generic looking conference room that seated ten to an absolutely beautiful state-of-the-art room with all the latest bells & whistles comfortably seating twenty. The folks from JM Coull I interfaced with daily were all very professional and knowledgeable. The Project Manager and Superintendent clearly understood the culture at Zymark Corporation and fit right in. The project was completed on time and within budget during normal business hours…I personally want to thank you for making this challenging project such a tremendous success and look forward to having JM Coull on our team as we expand our company in the future." Lawrence H., Facility Manager, Zymark Corporation

"We would like to congratulate and thank JM Coull, Inc. for your excellent work on the Medtronic's facility in Danvers. You and your team were always positive, solution oriented and kept the client's goals, budget and deadline in sight at all times. We would not hesitate to contact and recommend JM Coull, Inc. regarding other projects which we would be involved as the architect. We look forward to the opportunity to work together with you and your firm in the near future."
Stephen W., President, Wessling Architects

"I would like to congratulate JM Coull, Inc. for the excellent work your firm has performed at the former General Motors manufacturing plant in Framingham, MA. Although your construction activity encompassed “only" 225,000 square feet, it was spread throughout the three million square foot area of the existing building and was a major scheduling and construction sequencing problem, given the extremely tight time constraints. Your Project Manager and Construction Supervisor were extremely professional, cooperative and flexible on this fast track, design/build project. Not only was the construction schedule restricted due to a fixed opening date, the project budget was limited as well. This required close teamwork by all of the project team members, which was well coordinated by your Project Team. As the Project Architect, I am very grateful to your firm for their knowledge and experience in dealing with such a complex project, as well as maintaining the flexibility to accommodate the many owner initiated changes throughout the project." Richard D., President, Woodbrier Associates

"After explaining my expectations and limitations I felt very comfortable with the design approach your organization took. In short, you didn't sell me a bill-of-goods I didn't need. Working with an older building, dated equipment and within a limited footprint can offer unique design challenges…Even with a significant change during the construction phase, (adding a 200 sq. ft class 100 area) the cleanroom was certified ahead of schedule at a class exponentially better than the proposed design…I have made a number of trips to Japan and been in many cleanrooms. The class 10,000 manufacturing cleanroom now operational at our facility ranks equal with those I saw at a fraction of the cost. It is truly a world class facility." Ray C., Operations Manager, Tokyo Electron America, Inc.

"As Facilities Project Manager for Textron Systems, I am writing this letter to inform you of the outstanding job being done at our facility by the folks from JM Coull. Your preconstruction team and the rest of your staff have done a great job with the fit up of our
existing cleanroom."
Dann S., Facilities Project Manager, Textron Systems

"Congratulations on receiving the award for outstanding safety achievements from the Associated Builders and Contractors. Shipley Company is happy to be associated with a company which values the continual improvement of its safety program."
Paul C., Manager Environmental Health, and Safety, Shipley Company

"I am writing to congratulate you and your team on a job well done with the recent completion of the Spherics Science & Administration Facility renovation here in Lincoln, Rhode Island. As President of Specialty Operations Solutions, I was able to see first hand the day-to-day operations and progress of the project and I am very pleased with the overall outcome. I am acutely aware of the many challenges that this project presented in this difficult renovation, from differentiating of work scope limits, budget and the extremely tight time schedule we were up against. As with any detailed renovation project, there were some unforeseen (but not entirely unexpected), items that came up. Your team addressed each of these items promptly and professionally. In the end the project was brought in on time and on budget."
Kurt L., President, Specialty Operations Solutions

"The quality of the work has been excellent. I am not an HVAC or insulation expert but our HVAC consultant has repeatedly told me how high the quality of the work being done is, and how much he respects the work that JM Coull is doing. This is directly attributable to your operation team's supervision and attention to detail."
Ann J., Administration, Society of St. Margaret

"I am acutely aware of the many challenges that were presented in this difficult renovation, especially with the fact that the clubhouse had to remain open and operational throughout the project for dinners, functions, and general membership use. As with any detailed renovation project on an older building, there were some unforeseen (but not entirely unexpected), items that came up. Each of these items were addressed promptly and professionally by your team."
Bryan M., Chairman Facilities Committee, The Nashawtuc
Country Club

"I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of The Benham Group and Oldham & Soforenko, to commend you, your staff and your construction crew on the excellent work performed for the Bruce Technologies upgrade and cleanroom construction. The program was complicated, the timing was acute and the budget was tight. In spite of these constraints, JMC completed the project in a most professional manner and with the highest degree of workmanship. JMC's cooperation with the design team and the owner was instrumental in keeping the project on track and within cost projections."
Robert S., Principal, Oldham & Soforenko Architects

"Your efforts helped us realize our design goals for the clubhouse and complete this very difficult job on schedule. The JM Coull team was able to work through a whole series of hidden existing conditions and worked to solve problems as they were discovered. Through your efforts, the Club was able to continue to function through the sequential renovation of the entire locker and changing facility as well as the development of a new front entrance. Without your conscientious efforts, the design concepts for the space would
have suffered."
Christopher M., Managing Partner, O.K.S. Architects

"I believe the true test of a project of this magnitude is how you feel about it not only when it is completed but after time has passed to see if what was designed and constructed fits the needs of the business and demonstrates the quality of workmanship. I am happy to say that both of these are absolutely what the employees at Caliper's Hopkinton headquarters can attest to today. This project could not have been possible if not for the technical and project leadership of the JMC team. The team involved throughout the project ensured that the project stayed under budget and on the compressed timeline we imposed on them. They were instrumental in coordinating with the architect and interior designers from Gorman Richardson and Associates along with multiple state and local agencies to mitigate the unexpected surprises that are always associated with a project of this magnitude. I know we introduced several significant changes during the project and each time it was met with an excellent "Can Do" attitude and was worked into the project without any significant disruptions to the project timeline or projected budget. The entire Caliper team is very proud of the new headquarters that you built for us as is the town of Hopkinton for highlighting such a high-tech company within its' community. We look forward to doing future projects with your first-class team."
Bruce B., Senior Vice President Operations, Caliper Life Sciences

"The Residences at Stony Brook presented considerable site, design, scheduling, and cost challenges. JM Coull provided us with invaluable services in each of these areas. Our project faced major budget constraints as we struggled to reduce construction costs to meet our project budget. The Coull design-build team provided much needed value engineering recommendations that allowed us to offer our tenants a high-quality product within the amount of financial resources available to us. Your recommendations made an important difference at the beginning of the project and each time we encountered unforeseen conditions from weather to regulatory matters to discovering unforeseen conditions…I appreciate JM Coull's teamwork, integrity, hard work and commitment to excellence. I look forward to working with you on the next development."
Steve J., Executive Vice President/CEO, Common Ground Development

"On behalf of the Shipley Company, it is with great pleasure and personal satisfaction that I write this letter of congratulations and appreciation for the work JM Coull, Inc. has recently completed in the design and construction our new, state-of-the-art, Advanced Technology Center (ATC), better known during the project as Fab4. I have no doubt that were it not for the technical expertise, project management skill and construction professionalism of your team, this very sophisticated facility could not have met the metrics of success to which the project was held, and, have been completed on time and within our budget."
Frank N., Director Physical Plant, Shipley Company

"Photronics presented a challenging environment from the time of design several years ago, through the period of decision-making and up to the actual completion of the building. JM Coull responded to the challenges by approaching obstacles with a "can do" attitude and arming Photronics with information to make informed decisions…We chose JM Coull to perform this work and we were rewarded with a vendor that partnered with us to manage duration and cost. You exceeded expectations and have provided a building in which we can grow and expand our business. Terry Colligan and I consistently delivered the message "We chose the right people to build our building!""
Lawrence D., Quality Manager, Photronics, Inc.

"I wanted to take a moment to comment on the cleanroom installation from my personal perspective. In short, my group has been very pleased with the outcome of the project. We have a very sharp looking lab, the job was completed according to schedule, and the interactions with members of your team were very positive…The day-to-day management of the project and the sub-contractors were largely transparent to us, and the end result has left a very positive impression. I also sincerely appreciate JMC's Project Manager and Site Supervisor's efforts on the project. Both have been excellent stewards of the overall job, and their planning and follow through have been outstanding."
Jeffrey R., Director Process/Materials R&D, ATMI Materials Life
