Who We Are

Al Wiederholt, founder of F&W Construction Company

F&W Construction Company, Inc. is a third generation construction company who has built a reputation based on safety, integrity and innovation. For more than 64-years, F&W has been delivering successful construction projects in some of Alaska’s most remote and unforgiving locations. Based in Anchorage, our team brings value to our projects by working collaboratively with owners, design teams and subcontractors to meet the challenges of our projects and work proactively to maintain schedule and budget. Our multifaceted field crews have the capability to perform structural steel, pre-engineered metal buildings, structural concrete, modular construction and timber framed construction.

In addition to our building expertise, F&W has a firm grasp on the logistical and seasonal challenges we face living and working in rural Alaska. Our office and field crews are experienced in mobilizing materials and equipment by barge, aircraft and heavy-lift helicopter in order to reach these hard-to-reach project locations. Our knowledge and experience working in these areas helps to ensure our projects have the proper equipment, materials and man power to execute our work safely and efficiently.
