FCI was built upon the vision and philosophy of the company’s founder and owner, Ed Faubel. Ed oversees every stage of every project—he is often found on site making decisions and managing the foremen, and his calm presence and unshakeable ability to stay focused, positive, and grounded set the tone on every jobsite and in all FCI operations.
Ed’s professional life began in the trenches with picks and shovels—he worked his way up the ladder as an apprentice, and as a young man he had a partnership with a Graduate Master Builder who was his mentor for six years. During this time Ed gained expertise in all aspects of the trade; he earned his contractors license in 1989 and started his own business that same year.
A lifelong Marin County resident, Ed has been married to a fellow Marin native for 25 years and is the father of two teenage girls. He currently lives in Mill Valley, where he’s an active member of the community.
