Jim Ward and Jim Burns founded Republic Building Contractors, Inc. in 1997 determined to see the company become a leader in the private building construction and renovation markets. They have succeeded and have distinguished Republic from other firms with their hands on approach to operations, detailed estimating, superior customer service, and building team cooperation.
Jim Ward is President of Republic Building Contractors, Inc. and is responsible for all office operations including estimating, project management, accounting, and marketing. He has over 30 years experience in construction, starting as a carpenter and then earning a degree in Architectural Engineering Technology.
“Hands on approach” is certainly an overused term but at Republic Building Contractors, Inc. it has real meaning. All field operations are under the control of Vice President/Director of Field Operations, Jim Burns. The presence of an owner in the field provides insurance that projects are built as designed and completed on time. A carpenter by trade, Jim has been supervising construction projects for twenty five years.
Together with a dedicated team of employees and subcontractors, Jim and Jim have set Republic apart from others in the industry with their willingness to get any job done the right way, on schedule, and to the expectations of the client.
