About Us and Our Integrated Approach

WalterFedy has big plans for growth and we need the best talent to make it happen. We are established enough to have deep local roots, yet nimble enough to aggressively pursue our bold goals. We believe investing in our talent is critical to achieving these goals.

 

Facilities management is the combination of management, financial, economic, engineering, and other practices applied to physical assets with the objective of providing the required level of service and occupant comfort in the most cost-effective manner.   Major facilities management and infrastructure projects are typically characterized by uncertainty of outcomes, high stakes related to cost, liability and the inherent competing interests of a host of key stakeholders, including Board members, owners, contractors, architects, designers, and construction staff. 

 

We are a team of dedicated project professionals that have unsurpassed, cross-sector, deep building industry experience in every aspect of the capital project lifecycle.  Our people possess practical and effective project management, engineering, consulting, and communication skills, as well as strong professional qualities and financial acumen.
