About Us

JF Scott Construction is a group of construction professionals and tradespeople who have worked together for the last 20+ years on renovations and new construction projects in the healthcare, municipal, commercial and academic markets throughout Maine. Our project experience and expertise ranges from small maintenance projects for regular clients to the $320 million, 640,000 square foot Alfond Center for Health. We are highly collaborative, leverage technology, and strive to improve communications between owners, designers, contractor and subcontractors. In the fall of 2013, we saw an opportunity to leverage our experience on collaborative projects to improve construction delivery, and came together to form the core of JF Scott Construction.

Our clients are often, though not exclusively, non-profit organizations. Many of our projects are state or federally funded, while others are funded through a private lender or a philanthropic contributor. We work closely with the owner to streamline the process and accommodate any special requests.

The construction management philosophy at JF Scott Construction is simple. We are committed to the team to help balance competing project objectives. We play an active role in pre-construction planning, providing cost, schedule, and logistics feedback to the project team allowing informed decisions. The estimating process is continuous and transparent. Our billing system is open book. We believe open and honest communication among the project team is the best avenue to success.

Staff

JF Scott Construction has an experienced and diverse crew. Our field supervision is a mix of seasoned superintendents who worked their way up through labor and carpentry trades and younger superintendents with trade school and construction management degrees who wanted a bigger challenge than the residential work where their careers started. Our tradespeople are experienced and enjoy doing the hands on work of their trade as well as mentoring our younger individuals as they gain the experience they need to become tomorrow’s industry leaders.
