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 in pursuit of 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 the construction field. 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 performing 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 corporations both national and international, J. Reilly recognized the need to provide accurate, detailed reporting on residential, residential high rise, and commercial high-rise buildings. With the need of 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. To date, Mr. Reilly and his team can boast of performing thousands upon thousands of high-quality inspections using the latest in technology to provide same-day turnaround.
