Why Fortis?

We Are Built to Last

Fortis Construction hasn’t been around for a century. We haven’t been owned by the same family for generations.
We’re only 20 years old and just getting started…and we’re an employee-owned company where people are empowered to do their best work.
This relatively brief company history means that we had the chance to build the business to last – right from the start – and ensure we left behind any stodgy, antiquated, or closed-minded thinking that can plague the construction industry.

With our humble beginnings still clearly in mind, we take pride in the national honors we’ve received to date: becoming an Engineering-News Record Top 100 Contractors in the U.S. in less than 15 years; being named ENR’s #1 Firm in the Pacific Northwest across all architecture, engineering, and construction companies; and entering the Inc. 5,000 Fastest Growing Companies Hall of Fame.

We attribute this success to our people, our culture, and our ever-present focus on relationships.
Our people are our foundation, and our Teams are at the center of all we do.


Core Values

This enterprise is built on these fundamental, inviolable values and beliefs:


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


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


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


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


Developed by its employees, these thoughts are intended to give more context to what’s at the core of this company and what’s expected from its people.

Our culture is the magic that unifies us. Experience the joy of shared success. Curiosity is a prerequisite: Push the button… see what happens. Good isn’t good enough. Great is the new normal. Enjoy the richness of friendships. Appreciate what surrounds you. Challenge. Be intentional. Teach someone something every day. Have fun building stuff. Grow. Listen. Check your ego at the door. Be humble. Build lasting impressions.
