Meet Our Team!

J. Reilly, Principal/Sole Proprietor

In the early 1980s, company founder J. Reilly began his career in construction while attending Northeastern University to pursue a degree in Finance. Fascinated by the intricate detail required from inception to completion of residential and commercial construction, J, Reilly decided to pursue a career in construction. Upon completion of a college degree, J. Reilly continued to work for some of the largest construction companies at first on residential and commercial high-rise construction. In 1986, Shannon Construction LLC was founded to perform new home construction and home remodeling. The company later evolved into Shannon Group and Associates LLC, and services were expanded to inspections and residential antique home restoration. Working for some of the largest national and international corporations, J. Reilly recognized the need to provide accurate, detailed reporting on the residential, residential high-rise, and commercial high-rise buildings. With the demand for focus, Reilly Inspections LLC was established to provide specialized inspections on everything from the 800 SF cape home to the 200,000 SF commercial high rise, from new construction to some of the oldest houses built in CT. In October 2021, J did a complete reorganization to best meet the needs of the ever-changing market, with that J.Reilly Inspections II was formed, dissolving a previous partnership. To date, Mr. Reilly and his team can boast of performing thousands upon thousands of high-quality inspections using the latest technology to provide a same-day turnaround.
