City Officials Join Construction Team for KFC Ground Breaking

 

Relationships that Built our First 40 Years

As we continue to celebrate our 40th anniversary, we have looked back at all the clients that have helped get us to this point and shaped our growth from a retail focused company working in malls to a multi-faceted general contractor working nationwide in a variety of construction segments.

Anticipating Weather-Related Interruptions


Weather conditions can often have negative effects on a construction project, particularly potentially delaying the intended completion date. Fortney & Weygandt, Inc. has projects spread across the entire nation and, as a result, we must monitor weather conditions from coast-to-coast. So when I speak to business associates in the Midwest and they remark that the weather has been great and that we must be rolling along quite easily, I have to educate them that we may be good in this part of the country, but we have issues elsewhere. Adverse weather conditions can easily cause delays which, in turn, affect a project’s completion schedule.

Fortney & Weygandt Rebuilds Arbys First Restaurant in Boardman, OH.

Fortney & Weygandt has nearly four decades of experience in the restaurant industry and has had a longtime relationship with Arby’s Restaurant Group for nearly 15 years. In that time we have built and remodeled many locations for the popular restaurant chain. Arby’s got its start in Boardman, OH in 1964 by Leroy and Forrest Raffel. Today there are more than 3,000 locations across the country.

Midwestern Flooding

As we have seen so often, water can be an incredibly devastating natural force. When a flood hits, as we saw recently in Missouri and Illinois, the resulting misery and destruction can leave one with an unsure path to recovery.

Can Construction Boost Retail Sales?

At a recent meeting with a client to discuss national remodel plans, it was mentioned that they look forward to the construction process starting because it often led to a boost in sales in those stores.
