Team Partnerships

Construction Manager for Commonwealth of Pennsylvania – Job Order Contracting Program

Since 2016, JEM Group has been the select small-diverse business partner for The Gordian Group to provide pre-construction and construction management services for Commonwealth agencies. Job Order Contracting, or “JOC”, is a proven construction procurement process that is ideal for use on renovation and alteration work, responding quickly to emergencies, addressing a backlog of deferred repairs and straightforward new construction. Instead of dealing with the time and expense of bidding each project separately, with Job Order Contracting, the contract has already been competitively awarded for an indefinite number of projects, enabling contractors to respond quickly and construction to begin faster.

 The JOC Program has administered more than $30 million for Commonwealth agency projects. JEM Group has a dedicated team of account managers who serve as facilitators for state agencies and The Gordian Group.

Select Design-Builder for Centene Corporation – PA Health and Wellness

Since 2016, JEM Group has served as the General Contractor for PA Health and Wellness. We have built over 130,000 square feet of office space from Philadelphia to Pittsburgh delivering local and regional construction contractor services for multiple locations.
