Our project involved a complete renovation of a 3,600 square foot luxury residential unit in the Wilshire Corridor for a client living abroad. Limited access to our client created additional challenges for an already complicated project. In addition to coordinating the various sub-contractors and vendors involved in the project, Fortis Construction served as a liaison between the client representative and building engineer to facilitate our efforts and ensure for a successful project. The elegant execution of our simple design is the result of Fortis Construction’s ability to clearly understand our design intent, convey this to everybody involved in the project, and consistently review the work being executed for quality control throughout the process.
Project Designer 5+design | Blair House
Brothers Philippe and Olivier were the masterminds behind the beautiful home they built for me. From the design concept to the complete build, they meticulously managed every detail. The design is modern, open and warm and inviting. They picked only the best materials for everything in the house. Every single thing was thought through. The home is high tech with all the latest in appliances, fixtures and finishes. The home is an indoor-outdoor paradise with the main living area moving seamlessly to a gorgeous outside deck, garden and outdoor kitchen area. Literally no detail was left undone and was carefully through through to make the living experience spectacular. The house is four years old now and still looks brand new! I literally step behind the gate into my castle every day and fall in love with the house all over again. I couldn’t be happier. Besides that, well after I moved in, If I needed help with ANYTHING they were always available to jump in and assist me to do anything. This goes FAR beyond any level of customer service I have ever seen in this industry. They built this house with love and care and it truly felt like they were selling me one of their most prized possessions. It showed in everything they do and did. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If you are EVER thinking about building a spectacular home to suit your ever need and desire, they are your guys. There is not a person who does not walk in this house and immediately fall in love with it. But it’s mine! And I’m never leaving!
I have never been happier having Olivier Fortis and his crew in our home during our remodel over a 4 month period. They were extremely competent and their scheduling was on time. They were always concerned about our safety, possessions, etc. At the end of each day, everything was clean and tidy. Olivier’s crew were lovely human beings, always respectful and polite.
I highly recommend this team to accomplish any work required.
It is our pleasure to recommend Philippe and Olivier Fortis, of Fortis Construction. We have used their services on several occasions and the quality of work is exceptional. They have innovative ideas and pride themselves on outstanding work. These brothers have incomparable business standards and ethics that unfortunately are rare in this field. We continually recommend them to friends and business associates in search of General Contractors. One would not be disappointed with hiring this professional group.

I would like to express my appreciation for the work executed by Fortis Construction Company on several of my design projects. It was a pleasure working with a professional contracting team that follows through on a project until its completion.
In my 20 some years as a professional designer, I have never worked with such a professional firm. I would recommend, without reservation, your company to anyone looking to have a top quality job executed in a timely manner.

I can’t thank you enough for the great job you did in rebuilding my townhouse at the beach. As a realtor, I am in a good position to hear the good, the bad and the ugly about area contractors. When I found myself with my own emergency, I was fortunate to have been given your name by two trusted colleagues. You quickly assessed the situation and provided a comprehensive estimate.

I have worked with Fortis Construction since 1998, both on my personal projects and on behalf of my clients.
I have always found Olivier and Phillipe Fortis to be honest and trustworthy as well as knowledgeable in their field. They consistently send reliable subcontractors to their sites and they stand behind their work.

The workmanship, with regards to all aspects of the project, such as woodwork, granite counter installation, and lighting was excellent. The homeowners have been very complimentary of the new room and are proud to show it off to their guests.
