Savannah Contractor Jimmy Smith Sees Opportunity in Down Economy

10/26/2009 - For Jimmy Smith, the tough economy spells opportunity for entrepreneurs. After eight years with D.L. Moore Company, Smith has decided to form his own company, JTVS Builders, a new full-service general contractor offering commercial and custom residential construction in coastal Georgia and South Carolina.

JTVS Builders brings a new approach to the construction market by managing the experience of the client with a hands-on focus to match expectations, says Smith.

“I want the construction experience to be a smooth transition from beginning to end.  That’s why I personally have a commitment to each client – to not only build a quality product for you, but to build a relationship with you.”

Smith, a graduate of Georgia Tech, was a project engineer for Beers Construction on the Westin Savannah Harbor and more recently with the D.L. Moore Company, where he managed commercial and residential projects, including expansion of the Bethesda School for Boys campus.

“I view the current economic climate as an opportunity, and my company is bonded and ready to meet future challenges,” said Smith, a LEED professional. “I’m very competitive and I know the market.”

He’s launched a new Web site at where customers can see his construction portfolio.

“I’ve always wanted to open my own business.  I looked at the economy, and it felt like a perfect time for an upstart.  Every business model I’ve ever studied points this out; a lot of success stories come from recessions, especially the upstart businesses,” says Smith.
