M.G. Fauci Construction Company, led by Michael Fauci, began in 1935 when Michael’s father opened the business, then called Fauci & Sons. Since then, M.G. Fauci has become the general contractor of choice for many developers and independent companies throughout Nevada, boasting a 100 percent completion record for all projects awarded.
One of Michael Fauci’s first big office projects was performing tenant improvements and remodeling at the 250,000-square-foot Bank of America (then Valley Bank) building at 300 South Fourth St. in Las Vegas. “I actually stayed in that one building for five years, doing tenant improvements, remodeling restaurants and offices,” said Fauci. “As areas were leased, I built them out.”
M. G. Fauci’s commercial property construction experience includes medical projects for St. Rose Hospital, Sunrise Hospital, Columbia Sunrise MountainView Hospital, Vencor, Health Strategies, Steinberg Diagnostic Medical Clinic, Premier Family Medical Center and Desert Springs Hospital Plaza Birthing Center.
Fauci is currently completing work on the Nathan Adelson Hospice Walter L. Schwartz Center for Compassionate Care. This newest addition to the Nathan Adelson Hospice, including a new building, parking lot and landscaping, is scheduled to be completed by mid-November. The 13,000-square-foot building will administer three separate programs: Compassionate Care Counseling Center, Palliative Care Institute and the National Center for Training, Research and Development.
Completed industrial construction jobs include the Mission Linen Plants I, II, III and IV, all in central Las Vegas, which total well over 200,000 square feet, as well as the Recycling Center located in Apex, completed in just seven months. The Sunrise Hospital Central Plant, located at Maryland Parkway in Las Vegas, was a particularly unique industrial construction challenge, said Fauci. “This job called for creative problem solving, as the plant was virtually in a tunnel from the central plant to the main building. We experienced immediate groundwater, so our tunneling and housing involved fighting a virtual, continuous river.” Additional industrial construction experience includes Nikkiso Liquid Natural Gas Testing Facility, Davidsohn Industrial Park, Cummins Intermountain Truck Center and Con-Way Western Express Truck Terminal.
Another current project is the new Fletcher Jones Mercedes complex on West Sahara, scheduled to be completed early in 2003. This new state-of-the-art location, over 196,156 square feet in size, includes an underground, fully-ventilated showroom.
The continuous changing needs of today’s office environments keep office construction interesting for M.G. Fauci Construction. The Bridgeport Village project in Desert Shores is a dual-use property. One area of the property is a retail strip center, with tenants ranging from a bar/restaurant to an upscale salon. The rest of the property is used for commercial office space. Fulfilling the general public’s retail demands as well as the professionals’ office space needs, plus the fact that this property borders one of the water parks at Desert Shores, kept this job challenging. Additional office space experience includes Frehner Construction corporate offices, Land Title of Nevada and the Kunin Professional Center.
In order to complete projects on time, M.G. Fauci has developed a detailed, proactive scheduling process that allows on-site supervisors and project managers to monitor and report the progress of all aspects of the job. To verify that the funds allocated to the project have been spent efficiently and properly, the latest computer software is used to develop a detailed, line-item cost-analysis system.
“Industrial and office properties are extremely time-sensitive projects. We know our clients can’t begin their work until we finish ours, so we pride ourselves on completing jobs on time and within budget,” said Fauci.
