Scott and Fort employees with award

Fort CEO Named Entrepreneur of Excellence

All of us at Fort Construction offer our congratulations to our fearless leader and CEO, Scott Price. He was named the 2022 Fort Worth Inc. Entrepreneur of Excellence for Commercial Construction.

From Fort Worth Inc. …

Scott Price says the 2005 founding of Fort Construction can best be summarized using the maxim “Crisis is the mother of all invention.”

“I founded Fort Construction out of necessity,” he says. “Having moved to Fort Worth for a job opportunity that turned out badly, I found myself unemployed in a new town with a wife and two kids who wanted to stay here. Our family decided to stay and start our own company.”

It took about eight months to raise capital to get off the ground, he says. “I rented an executive suite and started making phone calls to prospective clients.” The first year was spent on two projects for a bonding company for a total of $450,000. “With controlled growth, we now average $35 million per year,” he says.

“I always wanted to run my own small company and am extremely fortunate to be in Fort Worth. There is no other city in the country that could have supported the success we’ve achieved over the past 16 years.”

Congratulations, Scott! We’re proud to be a part of Fort and proud to have you as our leader.
