Fetters Construction acquires Corporate Construction

Fetters Construction Inc. announced the acquisition of Corporate Construction, Inc., an innovative 20-year old construction firm located in Auburn, IN and well known for their expertise in industrial, manufacturing, and warehousing maintenance and construction throughout the Midwest.  Combined, Fetters Construction and Corporate Construction have delivered more than $1 Billion in construction projects and bring over 50 years of experience to the construction market throughout Indiana and neighboring states.  Corporate Construction will become a division of Fetters Construction and retain the well-known name, but now with the backing and depth of the Fetters Construction team. 

“This new partnership offers an innovative approach to construction in this area,” stated Fetters Construction President Eric Pedersen, “and the Fetters Construction/Corporate Construction team brings a fresh approach and increased efficiencies to the construction management and design-build market.” 

Fetters Construction, long known for their ability to manage multiple projects with a focus on pricing and scheduling efficiency, and Corporate Construction, well understood as an industrial facility expert, provides an organization boasting extensive industrial experience and a long-standing resume of experience in the construction industry.  This new enterprise supplies an approach to the design-build method of project delivery that integrates the design and delivery process with a single, unified flow of work from initial concept through project completion.  

“Corporate Construction has always been considered an innovator when it comes to supplying high-quality service to our customers,” added Doug Hofer, President of Corporate Construction, “and combining this can-do attitude with the well-respected reputation of Fetters Construction provides our customers, and all industries in the Midwest, with a premier building and building maintenance partner!”

This acquisition will take place immediately.

Garrett Boys Baseball

The Fetters Construction team has volunteered their time and expertise to construct two dugouts for the City of Garrett Boys Baseball Little League fields. Footers and slab placement were completed last week and block was laid over the weekend. The Fetters team was able to complete the masonry walls on Saturday which will allow for the canopy roofs and remaining finishes to be completed by the Little League organizers. In conjunction with some Bricklayer Apprentices provided from Local 4 by Glenn Head, the project has been a true success! A huge thank you goes out to all of the Fetters employees and volunteers who put time into the dugouts.

Syracuse New School Tours

Fetters Construction facilitated tours at the new Syracuse Elementary School over a three day period so all of the students currently in Kindergarten thru 5th Grade at the existing Syracuse Elementary will get to see their new school.  Dr. Tom Edington, Superintendent of Schools for Wawasee Community Schools, led the tours.  At the end of the three days, approximately 600 students had toured their new school. The kids wore hi-vis vests and hardhats and were very well behaved. 

As part of the tour, the school had “Sharpie” pens available and each of the students got to sign their name on the concrete floor in the principal’s office.  The floor was sectioned off by graduation year.  Even though the names will eventually be covered up with carpet, it was a fun concept and something for the students to talk about in the years to come. 

The project is on schedule and school starts August 9, 2017.
