In 2005, Ellis Coleman and Craig Ferri founded Front Street Construction to provide general contracting services with a firm focus on building projects to optimum cost and time-efficiency standards using an innovative “upside-down” design/build technique they have developed throughout the production of thousands of single and multifamily units.
Both Ellis and Craig have a long history in multifamily construction stretching back to the late 80s. Ellis began by designing and producing turnkey wall, floor and roof component packages for large multifamily projects in northern Virginia and Baltimore. Craig was promoted up from field level to Vice President with Carocon Corporation, a large multifamily general contractor based in Charlotte, North Carolina. Both have leveraged their valuable relationships with design professionals, subcontractors and suppliers, their extensive mechanical understanding of production building and their design experience to the benefit of each project.
