Our extensive retail portfolio ranges from small tenant fit ups to large scale mixed use developments. Our clients and projects include national and regional operators as well as independent operators. Many of these relationships are rooted in such extensive history, that clients come to us in pre-planning stages to assist with budgeting, lease negotiations, and much more. Our relationships with retailers have taken us as far south as Virginia, and as far north as New Hampshire. Some of these partnerships have lead to more than 50 successful projects for a client. We're thrilled to be the first phone call a retailer makes when they're looking to expand and grow.
Fortunato Construction Group has built hundreds
of new retail destinations and renovations.
One of the ways we measure our success is by how often our clients choose to work with Fortunato Construction Group again and again on future projects. Over the years, we’ve worked with dozens of clients on multiple projects, from renovations and expansions to new construction.
This considerable repeat business reflects how carefully attuned we are to the concerns of our clients. We anticipate challenges in advance and provide guidance they can trust. Our team is experienced at navigating the process of the planning, design and construction and can offer guidance on what to expect, recommendations for keeping the project on track, and the leadership to ensure a successful project.

Ferndale Market Fresh
Ferndale Market Fresh opened in June of 2016. It is the first project that we completed for the Saleh family. The store features higher end, healthy and organic offerings, with an in-store Bakery, Delicatessen, Fish Market, and Butcher. Our work included demolition of the previous tenant space, major structural modifications to the sunken foundation and slab, many code related modifications, and a complete interior fit up of the kitchen and sales floor. This project is near and dear to us, as we are glad to build in the same community in which we work. We often find it especially rewarding to work with other family businesses, and we look forward to a long relationship with the Saleh family.
