What our clients and sub-contractors say

We proudly partner with private and public organizations to make ideas come to life.


“We are an International and National Urban Planning and Architectural firm. Our firm, in these capacities, has worked with CJR and specifically, with Harold Johnson. CJR is very knowledgeable about land use and more importantly in understanding that part of the process requires politics, layering of funding, consultants management, and marketing to end-users. This multi-faceted skill set makes CJR unique and our job here at Lessard Design Inc. easier. When Harold Johnson is on the project, I know the project will be built since Harold knows the market; the pre-sale and the practicality of the plan. In our business, the goal is to create memorable projects that are successful for the developer and the end-user. CJR more than assists in accomplishing this goal.”
