Why we care, how we care, and why it matters.

We’ve achieved a long track record of success because we are built on a different level of commitment, caring and relationship building. We call it the FCL Experience

We believe our customers and trade partners deserve an experience far beyond the basic expectations set by our industry of quality, on time, on budget, and built safely. These fundamentals should not be the exception but the expectation in our industry. You can count on FCL to get the basics right and build so much more—trust, impact, and authentic, long-lasting relationships.

Foundational to the FCL Experience is demonstrating honesty, transparency, professionalism, an appetite for detail, and a genuine passion for your project because we care about what we do. 

At the core, we never lose sight that our customers are counting on us to help deliver on commitments made to their customers, investment committees, shareholders, management, and capital partners. 

At FCL, our promise is a building done right and an experience that is outstanding.

How we bring the FCL Experience to life:

• Being responsive and demonstrating a passion for quality

• Protecting the customer and project outcomes through the closest attention to detail from pre-construction through production

• Being driven to earn trust

• Truly caring about the project and our customer

• Providing transparent, timely and honest communication

• Anticipating, preventing, & solving small problems before they become significant ones
