Meet the Team: Mike Ballou, Project Planner

Mike Ballou, Project Planner - JM Construction

Growing up, Mike Ballou was introduced to carpentry at a young age, working alongside his father, who owned his own business. Mike then moved to a cabinet company where he did installations up and down the East Coast. This coincided with building his own family. Three kids later, he left this 70-hour-per-week job to start his own construction business, which he ran for 18 years. 

Prior to coming to JM Construction, Mike focused on insurance restoration work mitigating water, fire, flood and mold damage. His certifications and training aligned with this area of expertise – taking OSHA and water mitigation courses and getting LEED and Construction Supervisor License (CSL) certifications.

Having run his own remodeling business for years, Mike appreciates the team at JM Construction. He shares, “What’s different here is that there’s good people backing me up who are very good at what they do. It’s easy to work with all of them. If a problem arises, there’s a team of experts who can work through it.”One of Mike’s strengths as a Project Planner is that he’s proficient in nearly all aspects of construction. He’s done most everything in over 30 years in the trade; that goes even beyond building to electrical work, plumbing, concrete work, and more.

Mike is very willing to share his expertise with less experienced apprentices, showing them the many tricks of the trade.

In his free time, Mike Ballou enjoys working on his house or venturing out with his wife Pam in their convertible Mustang. They love to travel locally, exploring all of the New England microbreweries that are off the beaten path. For their international travel, Mike and Pam are considering making a change: shifting from annual Caribbean cruises with friends to flying to one island and settling in. After 20 years of cruising, they have lots of destinations in mind

The next step for these empty nesters is to buy a condo in Old Orchard, Maine, a favorite vacation destination. But keeping their primary home in Douglas is in the plans since several generations still live close by, including Mike’s grandmother, dad, and their three adult children.
