Why Fortress Secured

Our Difference is in Our Approach

Fostering the right connections to build better, stronger, safer communities is our number one priority. Our unique Design-Build-Finance approach allows local government agencies to maximize their dollars through access to private financing and mitigate headaches through a controlled, streamlined construction process.

What You Need to Know About Public-Private Partnerships

Fortress Secured is the premier Florida-based partner for local government agencies ready to leverage the benefits of Public-Private Partnerships, or P3.  

Our current infrastructure needs are insurmountable. After decades of underinvestment and an increasing population, our communities are in dire need of improvement. We saw this need and found a solution. 

Benefits of the Fortress Secured P3 Model

  • Maximizes value for local constituents
  • Delivers a lower total project cost
  • Streamlines and speeds up the project timeline

Collaborative. Focused. Secure.

At the core of our process is teamwork. We put the best people together to deliver the highest value and most cost-effective, functional, and sustainable building to our partners — on time and at the guaranteed price. Part of our promise to our clients is after we negotiate a budget based on the specs for their building, we take responsibility for any overages in costs.  

Our P3 model is designed to create open, transparent and streamlined connections between everyone involved in the project from idea to completion.

Public-Private Partnerships vs Traditional Municipal Financing

What We Can Do for You


Our signature solution takes the Design-Build model one step further. Get all the benefits of Design-Build with direct access to private financing options through the P3 model. 

We understand the difficulties you face around financing new projects due to decreased tax revenue and shrinking budgets. Instead of putting off your much-needed projects, like fire stations and law enforcement facilities, work with our team to get it on the schedule this calendar year. 


Design-Build is an integrated building approach that can help speed up project timelines and better manage budgets. Services from architectural design to construction are managed under one contract with our team as your single point of contact. 

This turnkey approach can increase project delivery by 102%* compared to the traditional Bid-Design-Build approach.
