Core Ideology

We make an impact.

Read Our Manifesto


Life is too short. We want to work with and for people we respect, trust and care about.


We have an intense will to win. We will go longer, work harder and give more than anyone else.


We will continuously seek out challenges and push boundaries with creative ideas and solutions.


We are driven by work ethic and craftsmanship. We do our best work even if no one is looking.



Fortis believes in the heritage of craftsmanship, while honoring the traditional construction process. We focus on what’s best for every job individually. Creativity shapes our methods, sustainability drives our decisions and safety is always paramount.

Building Information Modeling Management

Fortis’ team of in-house BIM Managers and Modelers can bring your building to life before ever breaking ground. While every good contractor will say they provide Building Information Modeling, we cut the sales pitch and will show you what our Team has done. Get in touch if you’d like to hear more success stories.

Enhance Building Management & Maintenance

For OSU’s $51M, 135,000 sq. ft. New Classroom Building, we created an Enhanced Closeout And Maintenance Management (eCAMM) BIM package. Found to be so useful, OSU is now adopting our deliverable for campus-wide facilities management.

Spatially Coordinate Complex Design

For the $8.6M, 59,000 sq. ft. Salesforce office, more than 300 conflicts with pendant light fixtures were resolved with BIM before construction, keeping the project on schedule and budget.


Construction incidents are not inevitable. Every Fortis project is designed as an Injury-Free Environment (IFE). Fortis fosters and recognizes safety innovation.

  • Hands-on training scenarios.
  • Piloting pocket-sized Pre-Task Plans customized for individual workers.
  • Use of alternative, lighter weight materials and ergonomic processes.
  • Fortis designed material cart increases productivity and air quality.
