About F&W Construction

Company History

Big Al
Al Wiederholt

F&W Construction Company is a third generation Alaskan contractor started in 1958 by Ed Forsberg and Al Wiederholt.

For over 50 years we have delivered construction services of the highest quality, economically, timely, and safely for public and private owners throughout Alaska.

We are prepared everyday to deal with the challenges and tight schedules that short seasons and tough weather conditions bring.

Whether a School in Anchorage or a mountain top facility accessible only by helicopter we have the experience to provide the Construction services successfully to our clients.


F&W's clients are partners in the process. That's the way it began in 1958 and we continue to operate on that same basic principle today.

Timeliness of Performance

F&W Construction Company has never delivered a project late. Every member of the project team understands that our work is constructed on a schedule, and what that schedule is.

Cost Control

The majority of F&W's work is performed as "hard bid" or "guaranteed maximum price", we understand budgets and the importance of constructing a project on budget. We have considerable experience working with clients through the "value engineering process" where an alternate material or system is brought into the design process and reviewed by the team. This process can result in considerable savings to a projects schedule and cost.


F&W recognizes a clients desire to procure construction services as quickly as possible and at the best final value. We believe that our relationship with our client is an integral part of this process. The most important asset that the contractor brings to this process is the experience of their key personnel. The average tenure of key personnel at F&W is 17 years.
