Our Story

Read More

Fairchance Construction Co. is one of the oldest contracting companies in Pennsylvania. Originally founded in 1880 as the McCormick Lumber Company that operated as a lumber and builders supply until 1916 when it was incorporated as Fairchance Lumber Company. Fairchance Construction Co. (as it was renamed in 1994 to better reflect the nature of the business) is a local, family-owned business operated by four generations of the Balling family. Specializing in Construction Management, Design-build, General Contracting services, and Property Development, Fairchance Construction Co. has established a reputation for delivering quality construction projects, on time and on budget. Our many years of experience, the integrity and professionalism of our management staff and field personnel have earned us this reputation, resulting in a long list of satisfied and repeat clients. Continuing to build on tradition of quality and service, we at Fairchance Construction have learned that a job well done will earn us another, and we approach each project with this basic concept in mind. Our success reflects the commitment we make to work hard for you.

Fairchance Construction Co. has worked not only in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, but also have done projects in Oklahoma, Georgia, Kentucky, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia, South Carolina and The Bahamas.

Fairchance Construction Co. has been a dealer for Butler Manufacturing Co. pre-engineered building systems since 1966, making us the oldest Butler Builder in the region.
