Jeff Harper, President & Owner of Capital City Stucco, is a sports aficionado and a cold-weather fanatic. Here at W&C, we are based in Michigan, so the idea of being a fan of the winter season is foreign to us but for this Georgia resident, we’ll let it slide. Harper started his journey into the trades as a sales representative for Sto Corp. Staying true to his roots, Capital City Stucco continues to use Sto products and have worked with them on recent projects.
Capital City Stucco is currently comprised of 75 hard-working employees. When it comes to running a successful business, it’s important to have a good core group of individuals who are dedicated to the craft of their work. Some of the most notable parts of a job is reflecting on what the most interesting aspects of the work is. Jeff Harper notes that the most interesting aspect of the job for him is, “the ability to take a two-dimensional set of blueprints and help be a part of a 3-D project.”
This company is in the business of taking an idea and turning it into a reality. Other businesses share this same passion, but when asked what sets their company apart from the competition, Harper says it is their “attention to detail.” And from looking at the scope of this company’s work, it’s hard to disagree.
From apartments to casinos, Capital City Stucco has had their hand in a variety of different projects. One such casino project was the Creek Casino located in Montgomery, Ala. This casino has a 65,000-square-foot gaming floor and over 2,200 games to choose from. Another project the company worked on was the Atlantic House Apartments. Located in Atlanta, this apartment complex sits at 32-stories high, and is located in a thriving district.
Capital City Stucco has also dabbled in Education and Healthcare projects. The company’s most notable education project being the Emory University Dormitory, also located in Atlanta, Georgia. And for Healthcare projects: the Wellstar Kennestone Facility, in Kennesaw, Georgia; the River Place Medical Plaza in Braselton, Georgia; and the Meadows Regional Medical Center in Visalia, Georgia.
When asked what the hardest aspect of this job are for Harper, he says, “Maintaining the expectations that I have set for myself and the company.”
While meeting and exceeding expectations can be hard, we have complete faith in the President of Capital City Stucco to keep up the standards that he has set for this business.
