A trusted partner

JAAVIS Group is a full-service design, construction and management firm based in Troy, Michigan. From design/build to general contracting we approach every project with an “ownership” mindset.  Simply, we manage all projects, regardless of size, as if the construction venture was being done to our own facility.

We love what we do!
Every JAAVIS project is a passion project – and it’s this commitment to honesty throughout the entire process, attention to the details and a focus on producing exceptional results that ensures our clients are getting the most value for their investment. An attitude built around a simple philosophy born from almost 30 years of construction experience … it’s both the small and big details that matter.

Repeat customers and referrals are the lifeblood of our business. At JAAVIS, we strive to build long-term relationships with clients based on mutual respect, honesty and trust. It’s a commitment we take seriously, one cultivated from experience and an understanding of what it takes  to ensure even the most complicated projects meet and exceed our client’s expectations. That’s what we were founded on and that’s why we believe our clients turn to JAAVIS time after time.
