The year 2011 is a momentous occasion for JJCA. It’s our 20thanniversary – the anniversary celebrated with the gift of platinum as a symbol for strong and enduring relationships. And so it is with the theme of enduring relationships in mind that we set out to share, over the course of this year, stories of 20 of the clients with whom we’ve developed special relationships over the years.
We’ve worked largely in the healthcare arena, helping community hospitals build, expand and renovate facilities that can compete effectively with their metropolitan neighbors. We’ve become experts in dealing with the complexities of HUD 242 financing, allowing many of our hospital partners to obtain affordable financing without which their facilities wouldn’t have been possible. Our healthcare projects have given us the opportunity to work in dozens of different states, including most recently, Alaska. And we’ve now begun our first international project in Vietnam.
While healthcare has been our mainstay, you may be surprised to learn that we’ve also been involved in some very interesting projects of an educational nature. One of these projects has a bittersweet story, particularly poignant for the local Nashville crowd. Maybe even the locals don’t recall that JJCA was the architect for the original Davis-Kidd Booksellers store in Nashville. We’ve chosen to share this as our first story.
