Dennis Fitzpatrick, President

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 various construction services, from apartment, condo, and commercial development to general contracting. Joseph’s son, Dennis Fitzpatrick, assumed daily operations in 1993 and still leads all three company entities UC Construction, UC Framing Corp. and Fitzpatrick Homes.

Although UC Construction has grown into a company with the ability and know-how to tackle a variety of challenges, we are still a family business and have stayed true to our roots and dedication to quality. Our projects have become increasingly more prominent and diverse, but we still treat each one like our reputation depends on its success.

Crafting Exceptional Homes To Benefit You And Your Family—Now And For Years To Come.

For many decades, the Fitzpatrick family has been building state-of-the-art homes and multi-family communities throughout the Central Valley and Northern California. “Building quality into every home” has been the foundation of our philosophy since we started our company in 1963. Our reputation as a premier builder derives from our attention to detail and the excellent personal service we provide to each Fitzpatrick homebuyer.

Buying a home may be one of the most important financial decisions in your life, and we want to ensure that your investment will be secure. We carefully scrutinize and select each new Fitzpatrick Home community to secure long-term value. Because we use only the top industry professionals, we create communities featuring the most current innovative architectural designs and homes containing the highest quality craftsmanship. Innovation and quality: characteristics synonymous with the Fitzpatrick Homes’ reputation.

Our commitment is to family — both yours and ours. When you choose a Fitzpatrick Home, you not only join the extended Fitzpatrick family of homes, you invest in quality, reliability, and service that will benefit you and your family — now and for the years to come.
