Strikes @ Boca Raton
CJM Construction, Inc. was founded in 1998, by Charles (“Chuck”) J. Marchitello, Jr., a 33 year resident of the City of Lighthouse Point, Florida. Chuck has strong family ties to the City of Lighthouse Point; he brings his strong family values to his company and enjoys giving back to his community. Chuck serves as Vice President of Propel, People Reaching Out to Provide Education and Leadership to support the educational achievement and leadership development of the area’s less fortunate youth. Most of the children who receive guidance live in Dixie Manor, Pearl City, inner city Deerfield Beach, and in Section 8 housing throughout the area. Chuck heads fund raising campaigns that include golf tournaments, the 6th Annual Fine Wines & Canine’s on April 23th, 2015 at Royal Palm Place in downtown Boca Raton, and toy drive at Christmas.
Chuck and several of our sub-contractors are involved with a severely disabled child’s home renovation. He has partnered with our subs to donate time and materials to improve the quality of her life. CJM constructed a new therapy pool with a chair lift so she can receive aquatic physical therapy, remodeled her private bathroom, bedroom, and are providing the “fun” stuff a teenager needs to enjoy life. Having limited use of her extremities, we have installed several devices that work via smart phone remote control, which she has mastered and has a great outlook for the future.
In his professional field, Chuck works with several architects, engineers, and designers that continue to refer quality projects to CJM Construction, Inc. With many multi-talented field supervisors, our jobsites are professionally maintained with safety as the first concern. As a result of the 2005 Hurricane Wilma Disaster, CJM’s Construction, Inc was in charge of one of the largest debris removal and recovery projects in South Florida, supervising over 200 workers and restoring housing for approximately 5,000 local residences of Deerfield Beach, Boca Raton, and West Palm Beach. CJM’s Construction, Inc owns and operates headquarters in a 3,500 square foot, category 5 office/warehouse building, equipped with long term generator power to sustain uninterrupted business in the event of a local disaster.

- In general, smaller companies rely more on staff carpenters and larger companies rely more on subcontractors to get the work done
- Nearly all companies use subcontractors for the mechanical trades such as plumbing and electrical, and most use subs for excavation and foundation work, roofing, drywall, and painting
- On smaller jobs, they may do some or all of this work with their own crew members.
