About

J&L Development is an Idaho-based, full-service construction management firm specializing in the creative, functional design and construction of religious facilities, nonprofit projects and estate homes.

Founded in Nevada in 1998, the company was moved by Jesse and LeaAnn Ferrer to Boise, Idaho in 2005. Since then, J&L Development has become widely known as the general contractor of choice for church remodels and new church construction.

Commercial projects are also in J&L’s portfolio, with projects ranging from 17,000 SF office/warehouses and budgets in excess of $3 million to 42,000 SF school facilities with budgets in excess of $4.8 million.

J&L Development has also developed commercial business parks and several residential neighborhoods. Residential projects have ranged from 5,000- to 12,000-SF custom homes with budgets from $900,000 to more than $2 million.

J&L Development’s experience with the design-build process is perhaps the most important factor to a prospective client. We believe the best way to meet a budget goal is to diligently apply this process as early as possible in the project. See Our Process page for more information about this cost-saving development process.
