Fisher’s Design|Build Approach

Keeps Pace with Developer’s Needs for Growth

Madera Commons, a shopping center serving the growing population of California’s Central Valley, was the third project Fisher built for Newman Development in seven years.

As the design/build contractor, Fisher managed the site work, made street access improvements, designed and built the 40 acre project-all in 11 months. The project included a Walgreens, Lowes, Petco, Big 5 and a Cool Hand Luke’s restaurant.

Commercial development projects by nature require a complex orchestration of teams and services. The Madera Commons project played directly to the strengths of Fisher’s design/build process by enhancing the ability to closely manage costs and respond to changes while maintaining tight schedules.

Fisher’s team coordinated the needs of the owner, multiple government agencies, and the lessees, providing solutions throughout the process. From initial concept, budgeting and design, to meeting the build-out standards of 8 separate tenants, the project came in on time and within budget, successfully meeting the owner’s objectives.
