HISTORY


Carlos C. Forteza

Founded by Carlos C. Forteza, born and raised in Manila, Philippines – Carlos migrated to the United States in 1982 and attended school at Stillwater, Oklahoma. After pursuing a degree in Bachelor of Science in Architecture, Carlos came back to the United States and has been residing in West Los Angeles since 1988.

He then gained experience working for some of the top-notch Architectural Firms in West Los Angeles like Widom Wein Cohen, Johannes Van Tilburg, Pope and Associates, and CNI-Design – to name a few.

Being diversified in his field, Carlos C. Forteza worked from a draftsman position to a designer to a project manager. He learned all aspects of the building industry starting from conceptualization all the way to the application of the last coat of paint. This is where he coined the phrase "by beginning and ending with the same company, your client always save time and money."

As an expert on Computer Aided Design (CAD), Carlos produces all his designs using the latest software in Computer Aided Design taking advantage of our technology. The same design development drawings are then converted to working drawings (Construction Documents) saving enormous time and money which is then passed on to the client.

PHILOSOPHY


Most clients find working with an Architect/Designer and a different Contractor a very frustrating scenario. Architects/Designers always have a different concept on how things can be built and a lot of times, contractors would disagree with them. At CC Forteza and Associates, we think forward and consider all building aspects to avoid surprises. We work around structural configuration but never sacrifice aesthetic value and functionality of our designs.

If any unforeseen problem may arise, Carlos is always at the job site making sure that problems are solved immediately to avoid delays and additional expenses.

As a designer/builder – Carlos would always give clients their options to different types of materials available in the market. He works closely with his clients to achieve the most efficient design – functionally and aesthetically.

We know your home is one of the most important investments in your life and we pride ourselves on making sure that everything we do is to protect it and make it even a better home to live in.
