J C Porter Construction and Coppermine know a little some thing about teamwork. For a number of years, they have been working together to build and maintain state-of-the-art athletic facilities throughout the Mid-Atlantic region.
Founded in 2008, J C Porter Construction is a Baltimore-based, full-service General Contractor providing quality construction, design-build services and construction management for public, private and nonprofit enterprises. Porter’s experienced team of professionals specialize in all phases of commercial construction, ranging from interior fit-outs to base building work. Owner, John C. Porter, Jr. shared. “Much of our business opportunities come from repeat customers.” When asked why he thinks he is able to achieve this he said, “we consistently provide a top-quality product at a fair value, delivered in a safe, professional and timely manner.”
As Coppermine’s general contractor, JC Porter assists with new site identification and preconstruction. The scope of the projects varies depending on the facilities. Each space requires a balance between high end finishes, distinct branding elements all while providing a safe and functional space for athletes. Some notable locations are The Mine at The Shops of Kenilworth, Cross Keys, Shrewsbury, Northwest, Pikesville and Coppermine’s main headquarters on Falls Road.
The Mine gym is the latest project that JC Porter has completed for Coppermine. “Although it is 20,000 square feet, it has a boutique feel and personal vibe all while provid ing a full-service athletic experience,” shared Porter. It is equipped with essential machines, BARRE, YOGA, RIDE+, YARD, and FORM Studios with high-spirited and goal driven classes to boot. After working out, you can unwind in the ir saunas, lounge or recharge with iv wellness treatments or rehydrate at the juice bar. If this kind of pampering is not enough, The Mine also provides concierge medical and physical therapy services on-site. The Club is like no other and Porter and his team can all agree that SM+P Architects did an outstanding job with the design.
In addition to partnering with Coppermine, JC Porter Construction has completed a portfolio of work that includes tenant fit outs, offices, restaurants, hotels, historic renovations, medical and healthcare facilities, fitness centers, laboratories, mission critical, retail and capital improvements. When asked what sets JC Porterapart from its fellow competition, Porter shared, “our continued success supports our reputation and is a direct reflection of what JC Porter was built upon; performance, trust, accountability and execution. And how can I forget teamwork. Definitely teamwork!”
