Scott Price and Ken Evans founded Fort Construction in October 2005. Now, you might think they raise mushrooms instead of build things because their signs on buildings are multiplying like toadstools after a heavy rain.

Fort Construction is a full-service construction firm offering pre-construction, construction management and general contracting services for commercial work.

The firm’s gross billings were $40 million in the most recent fiscal year, the company said.

“We love the variety of projects in our portfolio and entertain jobs of all sizes from interior finish outs and renovations to ground-up, new construction,” the owners say. “With over 100 projects under our belt, we take great pride in the reputation we have built with subcontractors and owners.”

Projects include such diverse subjects as multiple auto dealerships, apartments, bank buildings, the Fun On The Run Paintball Park in Fort Worth and renovations at Stage West and Amphibian Stage Productions.

Their community involvement includes the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth, Cenikor Foundation, Near Southside Fort Worth, E.R. Van Zandt Southwest YMCA, Habitat for Humanity and Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas.

Executives responded to a questionnaire from the Fort Worth Business Press.

What differentiates your company from others in a similar business?

Our executive leadership, Scott Price and Ken Evans, both bring experience and expertise from working at multibillion dollar construction companies prior to starting Fort. Because of this, Fort can offer the services of a ‘big contactor’ with the feel and ease of a small, local business.

All businesses go through some tough times. What was your greatest challenge and how did you respond to it?

Fort’s greatest challenge was during our inception. Starting a new business and trying to sign up work, all while building a reputation, is very challenging. It took us two years to get a decent job and become profitable. However, we pushed through and here we are today and still going strong 13 years later.
