About FTG Builders, Inc.

FTG Builders, Inc., (FTG) is a Silicon Valley general contracting firm specializing in the high standards and rigorous requirements of construction for the healthcare and education industries. FTG’s three partners-Michael Fernandes, Rodney Terra, Jr., and Robert Giancola-founded the company on three core values:

  • Ingenuity in construction
  • Accountability in business
  • Integrity in relationships

FTG founders designed a flat, agile organization delivering personal access and professional accountability to clients who value responsive relationships. This approach of clear and frequent communication is a sharp contrast to an industry rife with multi-layered, impersonal service. Each founder is a construction industry veteran with decades of experience. All are natives of the San Francisco Bay Area with established reputations in the region for managing major construction projects, from design through occupancy, on time and within budget. For every project, every day on the job, each principal of FTG takes a hands-on approach, applying his individual expertise and relentless commitment to excellence.

For additional information about the firm’s portfolio of successful projects for Silicon Valley healthcare and education facilities, or a discussion about your future project, please contact Rodney Terra or Mike Fernandes.

The high standards and rigorous construction requirements for healthcare facilities are our specialty:

“We have to really understand the needs of the people around us. Especially in a hospital environment, you’re dealing with infection control, you’re dealing with safety of staff, and safety of patients… We work together, as a team. And it’s not just our team, it’s the client’s representative.”

“Construction is often lengthy. It’s odd hours. It’s noisy… as long as you’re embracing it and communicating with the right people, those are all challenges that can be overcome.”

Rodney Terra

“I felt cared for, cared about, the entire time... I recommend without hesitation, and with great enthusiasm, FTG to anyone who wants to get a job done and get it done right by people who care about what you want.”

Dr. Dominick Curatola

“Anybody can build a project. It’s about the people. It’s about safety. It’s about communication, craftsmanship and guys taking pride in what they do.”
