Our Projects

Clinton Jr. College Library

Rock Hill, SC

“As a small historically black two year institution, it was a struggle to raise all the funds for the project in a timely manner. Mr. Cope and his team understood our situation and once the project began, the work never stopped for lack of funds.”

Ms. Elaine Copeland, (Former) President, Clinton Jr. College

Rock Hill School District 3 – Program Management

Rock Hill, SC

“First of all, there are a whole lot of folks out there with perhaps bigger names and more exposure, [but] JM Cope is a family business, it is a small but extremely technically capable firm that can manage your projects, can manage your programs, with a home town flare but a fortune 500 capability.”

Mr. Anthony Cox, Superintendent, Rock Hill Schools

“I’m thankful that our building committee chose J.M. Cope for our expansion project. I would recommend J.M. Cope because of the owners and the project managers. They were very fair, they were very budget-conscious, they were very honest. And most importantly, not in just our newly expanded portion, but in our existing building – they stood behind their warranty work with any repairs and addressed any concerns that we had.”

Ms. Tami Huntsberger, Building Committee Liaison, Hope of Israel Congregation
