Pipeline – As we become more recognizable in our current markets, we look to expand our footprint and operate in more states to meet customer demand. We aim to win new contracts as a Prime with the right subcontractors on board. As we continue to look at viable opportunities and teammates for future work, we will focus on how we can be more competitive.

Processes – Our proven process is responsive/agile customer support driving word of mouth business and having empowered PMs as the central point for all communications with the client.

We anticipate a strong start to 2021 as we currently have repeat and existing customers coming back for more and we officially opened our new field office in Jacksonville for our construction team.

8-koi team members and current customers make our success possible. We appreciate each of you and the trust placed in us. 

Dean Rosenquist

To better serve and expand its construction and building clients, 8-koi has opened its fourth field office, this one in Jacksonville, Fla. - just three miles from NAS JAX. The new Orange Park location at 534 Park Avenue is home to a growing construction team operating out of the Jacksonville area. Properly equipped and poised for growth, 8-koi is an experienced EDWOSB contracting partner of choice ready to support projects whether simple or complex.
MEET THE TEAM :: Jeyssa Mast
Corporate Recruiter
Joining the 8-koi team as corporate recruiter in January, Jeyssa Mast brings with her seasoned corporate experience and professional networks. More importantly she’s known for her reliability, follow through and helping new comers ease into the 8-koi culture – finding just the right match for the opportunity.

Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Jeyssa moved to Orlando in 1994. She came to learn English and stayed to begin her college career. Later she returned to Puerto Rico to care for a loved one, all while completing her bachelor’s degree in Business Administration Management and almost completing a bachelor’s in Commercial Law. Those uncompleted classes still call her name to return and earn that second bachelor’s degree.

She’s been back in the states since 2004 and now has two children, Jaden and Jalie, and recently married Pilot Eric Mast. The two wed at her favorite architectural structure, the dreamy Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. Together the family attends church, supporting their neighbors, helping others along their career journey and valuing education.

“For if you suffer your people to be ill-educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.” ― Sir Thomas More, Utopia

MLK Day of Service is Monday, January 18, 2021.
“Everybody can be great...because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love.” - Martin Luther King Jr.

MLK Day marks the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service. All Americans are encouraged to volunteer to improve their community. Here's how.

8-koi is expanding its team!
