"Historic Restoration and Preservation"
FHTC is also a complete historic restoration services contractor and an EPA-certified Lead-Safe firm. Throughout our two decades of experience we have found that historic building technologies create unexpected issues for designers and project managers not used to adapting them. We are a consulting, design, and building contractor dedicated to helping clients find lasting solutions to just these sorts of historic preservation and period construction challenges. Make us responsible for the success of your project, and you may be assured of adherence to your goals, budget and schedule. From planning to project completion, our seasoned project management team can help you to control costs, will deliver projects on time, and will ensure that our restorations and new structures alike emulate the work of the master builders of the past. Fitzgerald's Heavy Timber Construction, Inc. works as a subcontractor or general contractor, able to tackle projects from supplying basic components like timberframe roof trusses, entry ways, steeples or pavilions to producing complete turn-key homes or small business facilities. We are in this business because we love what we do, and find great satisfaction in leaving behind a trail of cherished and durable landmarks.
Although our clients predominantly come from Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia, we have traveled as far as Ireland, Ohio and Vermont for projects. No job is too large, too small or too far.
"Quality Construction and Preservation that Spans Generations"
We promise that whether your project is historic preservation or new traditional timber frame construction, a new standing seam metal roof, or any of the specialty services we provide that we have the commited staff, experience and specialized resources to ensure a cost-effective project and long-lasting, beautiful results. The traditional construction and building restoration values and methods we practice for our clients produce superior structures at a far lower lifecycle cost than most now being built. The beautiful historic architectural legacy bequeathed to us by our predecessors endures today because of the integrity and foresight which they built into thier projects. We promise to continue in their footsteps and to never abandon the standards of craftsmanship and performance which have enabled our historic built heritage to endure so well.
Fitzgerald's Heavy Timber Construction, Inc. is proud to participate in a vibrant, ongoing building tradition that mixes old world craftsmanship with modern technologies to create lasting legacy homes and landmarks.
"Wherefore, when we build let us think that we build forever. Let it not be for present delight, nor for present use alone; let it be such work as our descendants will thank us for, and let us think as we lay stone on stone that a time is to come when those stones will be held sacred, because our hands have touched them; and men will say, as they look upon the labour and wrought substances of them: 'See, this our fathers did for us.'"
