Justin W. Isabell is a restoration and building consultant with a documented background in construction and loss mitigation spanning the last decade bringing this expertise to J.S. Held. With an educational background in architecture, and ten years working in restoration reconstruction, Justin can knowledgeably assess loss, identify potential unknowns early on, and has a thorough understanding of building construction and project duration in and outside of the restoration industry. Justin’s strengths are in construction types, building cost estimating, and commercial drying.
Justin has worked on a large variety of projects including commercial, residential, industrial, institutional, and historical with a specialization in commercial drying and reconstruction. Justin brings a demonstrated ability to effectively communicate with all mutually interested parties in a productive manner so that all understand the critical path forward to a restored property. His past work experience has included projects on the residential side of the industry as small as flooded basements to large scale commercial restoration projects with more than half a billion dollars in exposure. With this breadth of experience Justin can seamlessly assimilate with any project team to provide experience and expertise from a small residential level to a large commercial scale as required. Justin has experience in dealing with multiple market loss and understands the need to work with all materially interested parties in a positive and productive manner no matter the complexity of the claim.
Prior to joining J.S. Held, Justin had worked as an architectural designer for a Boston based firm, as well as a residential/commercial builder before transitioning to a role as a project manager in the restoration industry with a national restoration service provider. All of this has developed in him a strong understanding of multiple construction types, the science of restorative drying, and the ability to work productively with multiple parties that may have different end goals.
