We recognize with every project being different, it is important to understand our clients priorities, expectations and needs.

  • Some of our clients have very specific guidelines established.
  • Others may look to FB&E to provide a single point of responsibility for the design, permitting and construction of the improvements.
  • Every municipality has its own version of code standards and zoning ordinances that need to be layered into a project. Sometimes the planning approvals take longer than the construction.
  • Buildings we work in and around may be fully occupied, bringing into play safety management issues, ensuring both the operations and constructions teams are working effectively together.
  • Many projects have hard deadlines to meet.
  • Some building projects need to the GREEN certified.
  • Many buildings have specific performance needs including crane loads, equipment foundations and temperature and humidity controls along energy management systems.
  • All of them need to be built on time and on budget.

Every project is different. As part of your team, we strive to bring the right solutions to fit the your project.
