About Us

Core Values


UC Construction keeps our eye on the future, but we never lose sight of the team that helps us get there. Our culture is one that comes together over diverse experience, personalities and talent. Together, we focus on bringing the vision to life, and it’s something that pervades everything we do.

Every project has an impact on its surroundings, and that’s something we keep top of mind with each step we take. Our approach of creating places that enhance the landscape, foster sustainability and cultivate community ensures we build responsibly while adding value to the place.
At its core, UC Construction is a company that’s committed to its clients. By providing a range of services in every aspect of our industry, we do more than meet client expectations—we surpass them in every way. And, as we go, we build relationships that are based on trust with a mutual desire to craft what’s next.
The safety and well-being of our employees, subcontractors and the public is something we value with the utmost importance. We diligently plan, build to code and prepare for any situation, successfully safeguarding from risks while ensuring the highest level of quality for every project.

Peace of Mind

Protecting and maintaining the health of our employees and partners is a priority at UC Construction. With a safe working environment on our minds, we enact excellent safety programs within the company and at every project site, going beyond typical safety standards to shape a culture that revolves around personal well-being. Starting at the planning process, each move we make is carefully thought out and calculated to prevent accidents and injury—because we find the best approach to safety is to be proactive every step of the way.


Joseph Fitzpatrick in 1987.
In 1963, Joseph Fitzpatrick began refurbishing and building exceptional homes throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, and that’s how our company’s foundation of excellence became firmly fixed in the area. Those first projects naturally led to new expertise in a range of construction services, from apartment, condo and commercial development to general contracting. Although UC Construction has grown into a company with the ability and know-how to tackle all kinds of challenges, we are still a family business and have stayed true to our roots and dedication to quality. Our projects have become bigger and more diverse, but we still treat each one like our reputation depends on its success.


For decades, the Fitzpatrick family has been building state-of-the-art homes and multifamily communities throughout the Central Valley and Northern California, which naturally led to the formation of our in-house homebuilding company, Fitzpatrick Homes.

“Building quality into every home” has been the basis of our philosophy since we started our company in 1963. Our reputation as a premier builder is derived from our attention to detail and our superior personal service that we provide to each and every Fitzpatrick homebuyer.

Buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will make, and we want to ensure that your investment will be secure and hold long-term value. Because we use only the top industry professionals, we create communities featuring the most current and innovative architectural designs as well as homes containing only craftsmanship of the highest quality.

Our commitment is to family—both yours and ours. When you choose a Fitzpatrick Home, you not only join the extended Fitzpatrick Homes family but also make an investment in quality, reliability and service that will benefit you and your family—now and for the years to come.


We at Fitzpatrick Homes realize that choosing a new house means more to you than a roof and four walls. Your house is your home, and home is about family.
