Meet The FTG Builders Team
Mike is our Secretary and Treasurer. In his nearly 40 years in construction, he has served as project manager for many challenging healthcare projects. Mike’s estimating, budgeting, scheduling, and value engineering skills are among the best in Silicon Valley.
“I enjoy working from the concept, when the project has been designed by the owners and the architects, to be involved at that ground-floor level… The satisfaction is that at the end of the day, at the end of the project, you can stand back and look at what you produced.”
– Michael Fernandes
Rodney Terra, Jr.
Rodney serves as our President. Working in the industry for more than 20 years, Rodney’s strengths include a complete understanding of MEP systems, OSHPD medical renovations and preconstruction participation. His specialty is client relations.
“We want to be a quality contractor who builds a client one job at a time, so that there’s the personal connection. There’s still the relationship. There’s still the phone call instead of the email… It’s not all the technology that builds a project. It always comes back to people. If you put the right people in the right place, the job’s going to get done well.”
– Rodney Terra
Robert is our Vice President. He oversees day-to-day field operations, superintendents, project scheduling, subcontractors, and phasing. Robert comes from a family tradition of construction quality, with relatives working in trades from carpentry to concrete. Prior to joining FTG, he spent 15 years as a sole proprietor.
“Anybody can build a project. It’s about the people. It’s about safety. It’s about communication, craftsmanship and taking pride in what we do.”
– Robert Giancola
