About This Project

Decatur Heritage Christian Academy

“Our school had the distinct privilege of working with Fite Building Company as general contractor for Decatur Heritage Christian Academy’s new 63,000 square foot facility on our new 36-acre campus. In every facet of the project, we could not have been more pleased with the professionalism, expertise and creativity exhibited by Jack Fite and the entire Fite team. From bid package and fee negotiation through value engineering, construction and project completion, Fite was a valued partner and trusted counselor. At every turn, they were responsive to our needs and desires for the new facility and went to great lengths to make the construction process enjoyable while doing the job ‘right’.”

“Our criterion for successful building doesn’t differ from the expected. We needed quality construction performed in a timely manner with a watchful eye to cost. However, what we received in addition to that (and not so commonly found) was an incredibly high level of teamwork and personal ownership of the project on Fite’s end. This evidenced itself especially during the value-engineering and design alteration portion of the project. Their expertise and personal touch in working with our architect and us kept this often-stressful part of the process flowing smoothly. The end result is that we have a beautiful, highly functional building which greatly enhances our ability to teach our students and attract new ones.”

“Fite Building Company was teamed with us from the beginning as we developed plans for this ambitious project. During the schematic design and design development phases, Fite reviewed our documents to resolve the best means and most cost effective method for delivering the project to the Client. To validate assumptions, Fite provided cost analysis of specific building systems, researched the best possible value for the project and determined the systems that were ultimately engineered for construction.”
