When Jess Fronckowiak (pictured, left, with vice president David Fouche) got into remodeling, he found his first success in an unusual niche: detached garages. Fast-forward to today, and he’s still using that original recipe— only now it’s for hospitals, one of the most demanding niches for any remodeler. “It’s very hard to get into the club,” Fronckowiak says. “Imagine doing construction inside a clean operating room. That’s what we have to do.”


And it all started because Fronckowiak was willing to take on projects other contractors didn’t want to bother with. “We became the panacea for our client. We started solving their headaches,” he says. “Eventually, we developed a reputation as the guys to get it done. That led to bigger and bigger projects.”
