John White began his construction career in 1982 when he joined Local 46 Metallic Lathers and Reinforcing Iron Workers. During his 10 years with the Union he quickly ascended the ranks and was a foreman on many jobs throughout lower New York State. If you’ve driven on an overpass bridge in Westchester, NY, chances are that John White had a hand in its construction.
John moved to R&L Construction in 1993 to work on various large-scale projects, including several for The United States Military Acadamy at West Point, the Picattiny Arsenal in NJ and The New York Zoological Society. John was the lead on many of the exhibits that opened at The Bronx Zoo in the early portion of the past decade. He was also responsible for several jobs involving adding floors to buildings without disturbing existing clients.
Feeling the need to forge his own path, John opened JDM Contracting in 2007 with the mindset of servicing the New York City renovation and alteration market. JDM’s first project was a 700k renovation at the prestigious UN Plaza, which was a springboard to other opportunities in the area. JDM’s finished work has been featured on NBC’s “Open House,” a program showcasing the finest residences New York City has to offer.
JDM Contracting also offers refuse and debris removal, both commercial and residential. For more information on the company and to view photos of completed projects please visit www.jdmcontracting.net.
