This is a linchpin project in the economic redevelopment of downtown Decatur and with full knowledge of the critical nature of the development, Fite stepped up to the task by accepting nothing less than complete professionalism on all levels.

The project was almost preformed under a fast tract situation and it had a hard fixed completion date in order to meet the grand opening already set for Veteran’s Day. The precision, timing, and complexity of the project cannot be over emphasized.

In addition to the actual project, Fite’s performance was stellar and always took the position of serving the owner first. Fite’s performance showed they are winners at many levels.

Jeff Easter
Director, General Services Department, City of Huntsville

This project was a complex combination of Sacred Geometry, construction precision and military significance; a true test for any Contractor. Fite Building Company embraced the challenge and presented the City of Huntsville with a monument that has become the new Gateway to Downtown. The working relationship between the Contractor, Architect and Owner can make or break a project and Fite Building Company’s attitude and performance epitomized the cooperative spirit that is necessary for a successful outcome.

G. Matthew Butler
Senior Architect, Chapman Sisson Architects

Fite’s experience and expertise was essential in the construction of this historically proportioned building. Day in and day out, Fite communicated with our team, the architect, engineers, sub-contractors and City of Huntsville building officials to ensure the delivery of a superior building in a timely manner. Over the last 15 years, our company has had the opportunity to work with over 20 general contracting firms. I can honestly say that from Jack and J. Robert Fite down to their jobsite superintendents, we couldn’t be more pleased with the Fite team. I look forward to the next project.

Architect, William M. Boehme & Associates Architects

Aegis Technologies Group, Inc’s newly constructed corporate headquarters is a prestigious commercial building located in Cummings Research Park in Huntsville, Alabama. FITE Building Company was the general contractor of the 49,830 SF building and performed an outstanding job throughout construction. The excellent manner in which FITE Building Company conducted this project working with the owners, architects, and contractors was unparalleled.

John D. Blue
President, John Blue Realty

As the project architect, I would like to take this opportunity to express that Fite Building Company delivered an excellent product in the construction of Buildings A & B at Madison Research Park. The project was challenging due to the intensive site work and landscaping scope and the fact that the project is seeking LEED Gold certification from the United States Green Building Council. Fite met this challenge by dealing with numerous weather delays in a very professional manner and working with the developer to meet their schedule despite these delays.

Les Tillery, AIA, LEED AP
Associate, Fuqua & Partners Architects

It is refreshing to complete a building project on time and under budget, and to look back on the project as being a truly positive and pleasant experience. We have come to expect this consistent building experience with Fite Building, and you have delivered every time. Now that the building is complete and we have successfully settled into our new quarters, the advantages of working with a quality contractor become obvious.

Robert F. “Clip” Coates, Jr.
President & General Manager, Coates Transportation Group

Over the past 14 years Fite Building has done the following projects for Decatur Transit, Inc: three shops, our corporate headquarters, and a 580 unit mini-storage complex, along with many other small projects. Each project was a quality job. Our comfort level with Fite Building is to a point that we know when they say they are going to do something, they will, and stand behind it. I would highly recommend Fite Building for any project.

Rick Terry
Vice-President, Decatur Transit, Inc.

First American Bank has a long history of working with Bob and Jack Fite. Having been involved in two of the most recent projects, I can personally recommend Fite Building Co., Inc. without reservation.

Fite Building Company and Kohler Co. have had a business relationship from 1990 to the present day. During that time, Fite Building Company has successfully implemented many important projects at our Huntsville facility. These include design & construction of 160,000 + sq ft. of warehouse space, boiler rooms and the construction of two special press buildings. The projects were completed on time and on budget and represent quality design & workmanship. I look forward to continuing our relationships in future projects.

James E. Vasatka
Senior Staff Project Manager, Kohler Co.

From that initial pre-design meeting through construction, Fite was a team participant in bringing the project to fruition. Jack took a personal approach to the project and followed through with issues that came up during construction, satisfying both the owner’s requirements and the architect’s design. Fite Building Company proved to be a valuable resource in providing information on alternate materials that were researched during the value engineering process of the project.

The overall success of the project reflects the dedication of [owner] Britt Sexton, the design team and Jack Fite, a contractor committed to excellence.

We wish to express our appreciation to you for the excellent job you are doing on our church renovation so far. In particular the cooperation we have received along with excellent communication is very much appreciated.

In deciding to completely change the architectural waterfront for our city, we chose a builder whose experience indicated that they were up to the challenge. Fite Building Company satisfied all of our goals.

As the Design Architect/Engineer of Record for the HMCAA Air Cargo Building Expansion Project we recommend Fite Building Company for the ABC Excellence in Construction Award. We were fortunate to be teamed with Fite Building Company throughout the endeavor. They displayed an attitude of professionalism coupled with excellent scheduling, contracting and quality control skills.

Michael Petrin, P.E.
Vice President, Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc.

Fite put together a great team of construction and design to deliver a first class Air Cargo building facility at the Huntsville International Airport. The coordination with the project manager to handle design and construction related issues found to be very helpful in managing our workload. The attention to detail from their subcontractors was a cut above what we’ve been accustomed to in the past.

Fite made a somewhat apprehensive client happy with the Design/Build scenario and we’ve continued this model for several projects due to the success of the Air Cargo Facility.

Stan Hogan
Director of Capital Improvements, Port of Huntsville

Decatur General Hospital requested that this project be performed as design-build.

This project was very successful from the beginning design stages, establishing preliminary budgets, staying on budget throughout the design and construction process, remaining on schedule, and minimizing change orders.

I highly recommend Fite Building Company with their abilities to plan, develop, and construct buildings such as the DG Plaza Building in Decatur.

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’.

Stratton Orr
Chairman, Board of Trustees, Decatur Heritage Christian Academy

We are pleased to offer our recommendation to you for the outstanding work Fite Building Company achieved on the Systems Software Engineering Annex – Phase 2. With this project being a Design/Build Delivery Process, the entire team worked collectively to ensure the success to the satisfaction of the owner.

Kristine A. Harding, AIA, NCARB
Vice President, KPS Group

Your firm proved to truly define excellent leadership, experience and management to successfully complete a semi-complex design build contract with a new design build team. The management of your subcontractors was unprecedented and proved to your overall success on this project.

John R. Crutcher
Project Engineer, Mobile District Corps of Engineers

Your personnel succeeded in accomplishing a most challenging project in a fashion which should be regarded as a benchmark goal for the construction industry. Virtually every aspect of measurable performance was surpassed by your project team. Schedule achievement, cost effectiveness and quality of work were areas in which your project team exceeded all expectations.

Michael A. Petrin, P.E.
Vice President, Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon, Inc.

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.

Scott Mayo
Headmaster

From our perspective, this project would not have been a success if it were not for the experience and knowledge of the entire Fite Building Company Team. When issues arrived, it was the goal of your team to address them and quickly come up with a solution to ensure that the project kept moving forward without delays and this effort has attributed to a successful completion of the project in budget and on time.

Carter Lewis
Facilities Manager, Software Engineering Directorate, Aviation & Missile Research, Development & Engineering Center

In regards to ITC, there was never any question which contractor would be selected to oversee the demolition and reconstruction of the Phoenix Project. FBC was the obvious choice because of their first-hand knowledge of the facility and understanding of ITC’s expectations, coupled with their quality workmanship, safety record, and attention to detail along with the ability to well organize and manage major projects and still minimize overall project cost.

Mark S. Voelkel
Senior Engineer, Southern Division, Independence Tube

The Fite Building Company was instrumental in the successful construction of the Waterfront Condominiums in Decatur, Alabama. Their thoughtful management and coordination of the project, with its multiple individual owners and adjustments, kept the project on a timely schedule and exceeded the goals and budgets established by the developer and Matheny Goldmon Architects.

Matheny Goldmon Architects, AIA

Fite Building Company did an outstanding job during the construction of this facility. The project was on time and within budget. Fite Building was able to navigate some difficult construction issues with the connection corridors and the interruption of current providers. These issues were handled efficiently by on site management and company leadership. The end result is a beautiful building that adds to our campus and is a much-needed asset for our hospital.

James W. Hahn
President/CEO, Decatur General Hospital

The Fite team was knowledgeable, hard working and intent on making sure we got a great product. Their superintendent went way beyond our expectations and was awesome to work with!
