Fisher and Strachan, Inc. (FSI) began in 1974 as a partnership between
Thomas F. Fisher and Richard B. Strachan. These founders, brothers-in-law
and close friends, each brought unique skills to the partnership.
Tom had just graduated from law school and wanted to establish a painting
company, a trade he practiced during his undergraduate and graduate years.
Rich had worked as a project manager for a nationally recognized General
Contractor, and as head of construction for a prominent development and
management firm that owned large office buildings and medical facilities.
The operation began with painting services and, soon after, added drywall
services to management companies, developers and general contractors. Tom
worked directly with the field crews while Rich handled all the
As the workload grew, the concentration of Tom on the operations side and
Rich on the administrative side established an efficient, customer-driven
organization. With Tom's skill in the field and Rich's depth of experience
in contracting and construction, the firm made the transition to an interior
general contractor while maintaining painting and drywall services for
management companies and similar clients. FSI's general contracting and
specialty trade renovations continue today.
Our lead field supervisors and tradesmen are long-term members of
the FSI team. Some have worked for FSI for over twenty years and some
are sons of former, retired FSI employees. Our founders' desire to
provide quality work with integrity is a philosophy that applies to
our employees as well.
client base has grown quickly and we perform services for several
of the same management companies we worked for back in 1974. Quality
services that meet our clients' needs and exceed their expectations
have meant recurring contracts and significant repeat business for
FSI. Each client is treated fairly and courteously and can count on
value and high quality from FSI.
Technology has dramatically changed the way the construction business
is administered. FSI has a keen interest in developing and maintaining
the most efficient mode of operation. At FSI, , the old school, hands-on
management style has joined forces with the new skills needed to run an
efficient 21st century business.
We are proud of our past and the controlled growth we have experienced.
We are grateful for the continued confidence of our clients. At Fisher
and Strachan we are excited about the changes all of us in construction
will face in the future. We are confident FSI is prepared to face
the challenges ahead.
