Owner & Director: Jason Court
Jason Court has been in the Construction Industry for 30 years, in that time he has amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience, not only in terms of technical expertise but also a masterful business acumen, which led him to launch Fortis Construction in 2010.
Upon leaving school at 17, Jason went straight to work for his Father, dividing his time between Construction sites and Oaklands College in St Albans, where he attained an HND in Carpentry. After completing his education, Jason began to take a more active role in his father’s business, proving himself at every step and eventually overseeing entire projects.
Three years ago, his father retired and Jason launched Fortis Construction Limited. This decision has been paying dividends ever since, with Fortis seeing steady growth and a high rate of positive response from customers and architects all built on a solid foundation of great projects.
Jason is helped in the office by his wife Julie who looks after the administrative side of Fortis, ensuring that Jason is always available to meet new and current clients. With his comprehensive knowledge of the business he can explain every element of a project, from bricks and beams to planning permission and troubleshoot any issues at once, keeping projects running smoothly, on time and on budget.
Away from the business, Jason is an avid sports fan and was once a Semi-Professional Footballer, these days he can be found at the Golf Club, playing for his Club’s Scratch Team, of which he is currently Captain, and competing in the County Golf Championship, getting through to the final in 2011.
But, Jason’s primary focus remains on being the driving force behind a premier construction company built on a tradition of excellence that is always seeking to give you a better deal.
