ABOUT FORT CONSTRUCTION

Since graduating from Wesleyan University in 1984 with a degree in Chemistry, followed by an MBA at the University of Virginia, Scott Price has had involvement in the construction industry for over 25 years. He learned the nuts and bolts of construction earlier in his career when he started as an assistant project manager on a large hotel project in Washington, D.C. From this, he went on to manage over $100 million in construction projects.
More recently, Scott’s talents have been focused on the developmental side of the construction process. This, combined with his construction management experience, has allowed him to guide clients through the entire process – from developing the initial vision to planning the final execution.
Married for more than 20 years and with two boys, Scott serves as Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Fort Worth, Amphibian Theater, and Fort Worth South, Inc. He is also on the Advisory Council for Cenikor Foundation.
“The experience and expertise of much larger contractors combined with the lower overhead of a small contractor creates an opportunity for owners to save money, while also receiving ‘best-in-business’ construction services. We’ve intentionally eliminated layers of authority – our senior partners actively manage all projects.” -Scott Price
Ken Evans has over 30 years of experience in the construction industry. After graduating from Texas A&M University in 1980 with a degree in Construction Science, he moved to the Fort Worth area and joined a large local contractor, with whom he worked on numerous projects in downtown Fort Worth.
Ken has experienced every aspect of the building process, from beginning as an entry-level engineer, through his current position as project executive. He has worked on a wide variety of projects, including City Center I & II, Sundance East, the Worthington Hotel Ballroom Renovation and Texas Oncology on Fort Worth’s 8th Avenue.
Ken has been married for 35 years and has two daughters and five grandchildren. He serves as president of the Board of Directors for the E.R. Van Zandt Southwest YMCA and is actively involved in Habitat for Humanity.
“In order to be successful, we must find a way to be different from our competition. Whether it be schematic design budgeting from an 8 ½” X 11” sketch, working in a collaborative effort during preconstruction, or simply providing construction services, we truly strive to be a client-driven company.” – Ken Evans
Dennis Averitt grew up in the construction business, starting out as a Union Carpenter in 1973 and is now a nationally respected General Superintendent. He is known for his leadership as the Superintendent of the Bass Performance Hall and Fort Worth’s Modern Art Museum, both of which received AGC’s Build America Award.
Dennis has managed individual projects in excess of $200 million. He has worked with Ken for more than 20 years and Scott for 10 years. His experience in every area of the building process is a tremendous resource.
Dennis has been married for 31 years and has two children, both of whom are working in the construction industry.
“I thrive on the challenge of working ‘hands-on’ and owning responsibility for a project. We do things right the first time – that saves owners time and money.” -Dennis Averitt
