Jim Ford


As Manager of the Commercial Division of Karwood Contracting, Jim oversees all commercial construction projects. Once our design team completes their detailed plans for a build, Jim and his team manage all aspects of the construction. From budget and schedule development through procurement, contract administration, permitting, site coordination, inspections, and finally commissioning and turnover of completed projects; the commercial build team ensures every process is carried out meticulously, and that’s the way Jim likes it. In addition, Jim takes a lead role in Code interpretation and application as well as Q/A in both Commercial and Residential divisions.  He manages the Warranty program under the Atlantic Home Warranty Program and is the company lead and liaison for any legal issues. Prior to joining Karwood Jim worked as Chief Building Inspector for 28 years with the City of St. John’s.  As a Certified Engineering Technologist (Civil) Jim now enjoys experiencing the building industry “from the other side.”
