For some general contractors, the relationship with their subcontractors is nearly adversarial. At J.T. Magen, there’s a true partnership with subs and suppliers – the team sits down and comes up with a strategy on how to get the job done and resolve issues. Company estimators involve the subs at the bid phase, and the relationship continues into the field. Subcontractors are treated fairly. Everyone is interlinked in the J.T. Magen world.
