Press Release From Clinton, New Jersey – Coppola Brothers LLC, Coppola Brothers LLC, a Construction and Project Management company in the residential, historic and commercial renovation/remodeling market, recently won Metropolitan Builders and Contractors Association of New Jersey’s (Metro) Award of Excellence for the “Best Commercial Renovation” for its project at Quantum Wellness in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Coppola Brothers was called to complete this project as a result of a contractor who failed to meet quality standards and retain budget control.  As a bonded and bank validated builder, Coppola Brothers was able to facilitate a revised construction loan and coordinate new as-built architectural plans.  After months of cleaning up from the prior contractor, Coppola Brothers met with an additional challenge after owner, Ken Kaplan, fired the original architect.  Coppola Brothers brought in Kenneth Fox of Fox Architectural Design to bring the job across the finish line. Our construction work speaks for itself.  However, the company is proud of the personal friendships that were made with the owner, the owner’s staff, and all involved from Coppola Brothers.
