about

During all this time we stayed true to one and the same principles
of business operations.

Our Core Values

FTR’s core values have been shaped over more than 10 years of delivering the finest demolition, hazmat, and clean-up services to our clients. They stood to the test of time and these principles remain our bedrock lynchpins. We hace never tried to cut on either quality, the pace of work, safety or any other construction aspect. We stay true to our full promise of efficiency!

Stewardship

Stewardship is one of our main core values at FTR.  Stewardship means taking care of the little things so the big things take care of themselves.  It is our goal to make sure that all of our clients are taken care of, not just in providing a quality product but having great communication and relationships throughout the project and after.

Passion

Quality is the focal point in every little aspect of the construction business. The mindset of both our senior employees and all the way to our on-site contractors and construction workers centers on attention. It’s out attention to details that allows us to work on a multitude of projects simultaneously, while staying on schedule!

Environment friendliness

Besides valuing your time, your money and your vision for the project, we also value the Mother Nature as well…It cannot be denied anymore, that even the small construction implements the nature in a bad way… That’s why we’re leading the effort to use only eco-friendly materials and comply with keeping the environment unpolluted by the work we do!
