Last month, EMJ’s Dallas office celebrated the grand opening of PetSmart in El Paso, Texas. Located at 3790 Joe Battle Blvd., the store is the specialty pet retailer’s 1600th location.
The EMJ team began work on the project in May of this year and turned the project over to the client just five months later in October.
Our work included the interior and exterior of the 18,000-square-foot store and all site work at the location.
Doug Schwartz of Southwest Land Development Services said, “The store looks great. Thanks to your entire project team for delivering on time.”
The PetSmart construction management representative, Gene Winkels, also gave high praise to Superintendent James Jones saying, “It was a pleasure working with you on this project. Your dedication, integrity and professionalism are hallmarks of an outstanding individual.”

This is EMJ’s ninth PetSmart to build, including PetSmart at West Towne Marketplace, also in El Paso.
Congratulations to the entire project team and thank you for your hard work!
James Jones, Senior Superintendent
Scott Reppond, Preconstruction Manager
Cody Walston, Project Engineer
April Barnard, Accounting Supervisor
Kathy Marthe, Operations Accountant I
Sheila Nazario-Thomas, Administrative Assistant
