Building Better Lives.

The Friedrich Watkins Company has been a leader in the Central Florida construction industry for over 20 years. We were founded with the purpose of developing sound construction management methodology and complimenting that with honesty and integrity in our dealings with clients, subcontractors, suppliers, and employees. This strategy has helped us grow from two men and a dream, to a twenty-five-plus employer with two offices; covering Central Florida and the Tampa Bay construction markets.

From our humble beginning of a construction fence around a dumpster in Lake Buena Vista's Shopping District, to the $19 million hotel renovation, FWC has earned the trust and respect of our clients. This trust is exhibited in our repeat clientele from several major Central Florida theme parks, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Something Silver, Orlando Harley-Davidson, Wolfgang Puck Enterprises, Burton Snowboards, and many more. We are looking forward to many years of continued collaboration on exciting construction projects with our current and future clients.

Our strategic plan going forward is to continue to fortify our vision by adhering to the FWC Mission Statement and caring for our employees, vendors, and clients. We pride ourselves on being one of the only Central Florida construction companies that are consistently dependable and presenting a high-quality product. We treat each and every construction project as if it is our only one. No matter what the project is, FWC provides unrivaled construction services. We minimize surprises by consistently monitoring the progress of each project and remaining in constant contact with our clients and subcontractors.
