$3 million and $4 million. The company's apartments in New York
City are typically valued between $1 million and $1.5 million.
AA Jedson's current retail and commercial projects include
building Equinox Fitness and Rumble Boxing studios in New York
City. The company is also building a location for The Wing, a women's networking and social organization.
'NEVER CUT CORNERS'
Bordes credits the company's project diversity to client referrals.
"People we have done homes for referred us for commercial, residential and retail projects," he says. "We've been fortunate to have
had many of the same clients for more than 15 years."
Before founding the company, Bordes had gained decades of
experience in residential and commercial construction beginning
in his teens, when he worked as a laborer. After earning a degree
in construction management from Williamstown University in the
early 1980s, Bordes began work as a leader and supervisor for several companies. Just before starting AA Jedson, Bordes and two
partners owned and managed another company that specialized in
residential projects. Like AA Jedson, Bordes' previous company
had also diversified into other project types before he broke out
onto his own after the relocation of his partners, he says.
Although Bordes plans to continue growing his company, it will
not come at the expense of his dedication to quality. "My advice to
other companies is to work as hard as you can and be as honest as
you can to your clients every day and always focus on the details,
because that's the first thing everyone sees," he says. )
