The Client Experience EMJ’s vision is to change the industry, one project experience at a time. We want our work to be different, so much better than the way things are traditionally done, that we transform the expectations people have of the construction industry. National Scope, Regional Focus EMJ has regionally-designated teams across the country and an extensive network of experienced subcontractors nationwide. THE DIFFERENCE

Since 1968, EMJ Corporation has built more than 280 million square feet of construction projects within a variety of industries in 47 states and the District of Columbia. Whether repurposing a historic building into a modern office space or constructing a multi-tenant office development, EMJ focuses on delivering unique value through servant leadership to clients, partners and colleagues. APPROACH Concept-to-Completion (C2C®) is EMJ’s team approach to delivering unique value to clients, partners and colleagues. C2C empowers our team to produce an exceptional client experience through four strategic steps: Ask, Listen, Think and Do. The EMJ team performs these steps to customize its approach to each construction project based on a client’s vision, values and expectations. C2C promotes trust and collaboration, which cultivates proactive solutions, project strategies, risk identification and mitigation, maximized project potential, client satisfaction and unique client value. Through C2C, teams expand the construction approach from a focus on “building” and “immediate cost” to value and client-desired results. $12.6B # Total Construction Value of Engineering News-Record’s Top 400 Contractors in the U.S. Since 1968

Blue Cross Blue Shield Danny Thomas Building

EMJ’s team renovated the existing six-story office building and basement. EMJ transformed the exterior storefront, curtain wall systems, ceilings, flooring and wall coverings. The team also replaced the HVAC system with a new variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system and installed more efficient lighting.


Farmer Brothers Co. Headquarters Spanning 28 acres, the coffee company headquarters includes a 258,338-square-foot distribution center, a 194,438-square-foot coffee production facility, and 84,823 square feet of office space for its nearly 400 corporate employees. Farmer Brothers desired an aggressive schedule, as four other facilities nationwide were consolidating into the new headquarters, and the new distribution center needed to begin operating while construction was still underway. EMJ coordinated the entire project team, ensured that the facility could function while construction was ongoing, and worked with consultants to highlight value-saving opportunities and ensure long-term efficiency for the facility. Our early involvement with the project team allowed EMJ to be fully in-sync with the client to proactively deliver value, resulting in almost $2 million in savings. The project is slated to be LEED-Silver certified. 4


Connection Park, Phase I and II

This two-phase, 301,000-square-foot project is a development by Stream Realty Partners. EMJ’s work included the construction of two multi-story office buildings and development of the 18-acre site.

On Phase II, the EMJ team engaged all structural and utility trades in full-scale Building Information Modeling (BIM) coordination. This entailed early collaboration with subcontractors to create 3D models of all concrete, structural steel, mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection systems. EMJ, subcontractor representatives, and designers met prior to and throughout the construction process to review the models and address construction challenges. In total, 195 conflicts were resolved through this early collaboration, resulting in an accelerated schedule and prevention of rework.


CBL Center and CBL Center II CBL Center and CBL Center II are two multi-story, Class-A office buildings totaling more than 216,000 square feet. Our team’s work included the construction and interior fit-out of both buildings—the 123,000-square-foot home of CBL’s corporate headquarters and the neighboring 74,832-square-foot office building—as well as all site work, including 600-plus parking spaces. Construction of CBL Center II occurred less than 100 feet from the fully occupied CBL Center, which posed significant challenges for the team. Through careful scheduling and site coordination, EMJ successfully navigated any issues and ensured a safe construction site for our team members, the building occupants and its visitors.
