Our Projects

J.M. Cope Has Expanded … Again!

After working throughout the Carolinas for over four decades, it was clear the time had come to expand our presence beyond our headquarters in Rock Hill, SC. In 2019, we opened our office in Charlotte’s historic South End to better serve our Queen-City clientele. We’re now proud to announce we’ve recently opened another office, this one in beautiful Greenville, SC. Much like our Charlotte office, our new Greenville location will allow us to more quickly provide the superior customer service and solutions J.M. Cope clients have come to expect. We invite you to drop by any location for help on how to approach building your next project.

“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.”
