Frank Dale spent the first seventeen years of his career with Centex Construction, now Balfour Beatty, primarily in Operations. Eventually he became the Vice President of the Corporate Client Group handling all the private owner work before founding FDC in 1997. Bob Armstrong worked with Frank at Centex and joined the FDC team in 1999 to lead the estimating/preconstruction department and worked into a 50/50 partnership with Frank over the next 15 years.
Starting the company primarily with interior renovations, FDC gradually expanded after a few years to include New Construction Projects. These projects helped to stabilize the backlog and became a significant portion of the FDC portfolio. From these humble beginnings FDC has grown into a complex multifaceted organization that has received numerous industry awards and accolades. To date FDC has completed hundreds of projects across multiple market sectors including Industrial, Commercial, Religious, Healthcare, Senior Living, Education, Hospitality and Municipal. Through it all we have made it a point to maintain our company culture and core values, never losing sight of where we started.
The new chapter of “FDC History” is unfolding as Frank Dale and Bob Armstrong, current owners, ease towards retirement. The succession plan is in place for Tyler Fairbanks, Vice President of Business Development, Johnny Rhea Vice President of Preconstruction and Chris Wolf Vice President of Operations to procure shares of FDC over each of the next several years and eventually, as the new owners of FDC, take the company into the future.
It is our goal as a team to be the most dependable, trustworthy, reliable General Contractor in our industry and, maintaining a reputation as such, leading to growth and profitability for the company and the employees.
We will achieve our mission by performing at a higher standard than our competition. This goal will be obtained by maintaining a high Code of Ethics, understanding for the other party's position, being firm but always fair, and by offering our word as a promise and our promise as a commitment.
