Jerett Johnson

Project Manger

Jerett began his career as a project engineer with Millis Development & Construction, where he had the opportunity to work on several notable Houston parks, including Midtown Park, Grady Park and Emancipation Park. He was quickly promoted to Assistant Project Manager before being tasked with managing the Japanese Garden project at Hermann Park. This project entailed working closely with the landscape architect who designed the garden, as well as a Japanese design team.

Jerett then went to work for Modern Contractors, building schools from the ground up including outside work, foundations and more.

From there, Jerett made the move to Schimenti Construction, working out of their Manhattan office on ground-up remodels for commercial retail spaces and other construction projects in the five boroughs of New York City. He started with B&D Contractors in December of 2020.

Jerett also spent some of his career working for the federal government remodeling and demolishing military bases across the United States. 

What is the most meaningful project?

My most meaningful project was the Lee and Jo Jamail Skate Park renovation project. I took that project from the very beginning through the end, including concession, drawings and construction. I made sure they got what they wanted — an all-new seating area, shade structures, fencing, and lighting, as well as resurfacing the skate features.

What does it mean to you to be a solution-ist?

This one is simple. It’s having the mindset that no problem is too big to solve.

What is your favorite tree or plant?

Snapdragons because of the way they look. They’re an interesting little plant. They look good in the spring and pretty decent in the fall.
