EMJAY Constructors Inc. was established by two highly successful construction veterans, Mary Layton and Joe Vislay, to meet today’s challenges in the construction industry and marketplace. Learning and developing their skills from over 50 years of combined construction experience and as construction executives for two of ENR’s Top 400 Design-Build and General Contractor/Construction Management Firms, EMJAY operates under the guiding principles “Always value the Client’s needs and goals” and “It takes a team to make a project successful”.
Although many construction projects are similar to each other, every client and every project’s set of needs and goals are uniquely different. Professional backgrounds that have allowed the principals of EMJAY to view projects from different roles and responsibilities utilizing many different delivery methods give EMJAY a better understanding of the Client’s needs and goals. This understanding allows for effective communication with all team members and fosters creativity so that the challenges and issues of a project can be resolved with the Client’s goals always in mind.
Many different entities and individuals, each with a specialized talent and role, are required to deliver a project. At EMJAY we believe that every team member must succeed in order for the Client’s objectives to be achieved and the project to be a success. Whether our role is leading as the prime contractor or agent of the owner or we are performing as a trade/sub contractor or partner, EMJAY is committed to succeeding as a member of the team in order to make a project a success.
Keeping a finger on the pulse of the construction industry is key to performing in today’s competitive construction market. EMJAY’s principals are active in construction industry affairs at the local, state and national level. Mary currently serves on the Executive Board of Directors for the local Associated Builders and Contractors Gulfcoast Chapter and Joe served many years and was the 2008 Chairman. He currently serves at the state level as a Board Member of ABC Florida. These affiliations provide access to a network of contractors in the state of Florida and throughout the nation in every major construction market.
