Who We Are

Since 1991, Mark Forsythe has brought his building expertise to projects throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, focusing on architecturally significant and complex designs that make a difference to the client and the community. Years of experience collaborating with architects, designers and subcontractors, Forsythe General Contractors brings confidence, creativity and professionalism to projects of various scopes and sizes.

FGC brings exceptional building methods and a passion for design to every project we work on. We offer our clients a mix of forward-thinking construction methods, nimble problem solving skills to the highest of standards. Our services, from pre-construction to construction, are always handled professionally with unparalleled expertise and the focus on making an enjoyable process.

Our Process

Hardworking, experienced and passionate, our teams are dedicated to delivering the very best to our clients. With an approach that combines clear communication, smart project management and the most exacting of standards, we work hard to ensure that our clients are satisfied through all phases of the building process.


This critical part of the process allows us to bring our extensive building experience to effectively tailor a strategy that suits each client’s individual needs. By meeting with clients, architects and designers a clear plan for construction is established and a preliminary schedule is arranged. We then competitively bid the project to our vetted network of subcontractors and vendors creating realistic schedules and budgets, providing construction details and cost options. Our early involvement results in time and money saved. It is our aim to create a positive building experience for our clients and collaborators from the very start.


During this process, we work to ensure our clients receive the best price from the most appropriate craftsman and companies. Our thoughtfully handpicked teams are designed to complement the complex needs of our clients and the aim of the design.

After establishing the best team for the job, we begin the work of transforming our client’s initial vision into a well-executed reality. Every element of the construction process is met with open communication, an eye for detail and a commitment to quality that is unparalleled.

Our Philosophy

We’re passionate about creating exceptional buildings, from complex new homes to bespoke commercial design projects. Motivated by our interest in exceptional design and innovative building methods, we seek to continually improve our craft with hands-on experience, education and an engagement with the latest in building methods and materials. Our entire team of professionals – from our principal builder to our site supervisors, project managers and office staff – takes pride in creating great buildings that satisfy our clients and the community at large. In short, we’re passionate about what we do and bring that passion to each and every project we take part in.
