FCG & BlueScope – Acquisition Finalized

Acquisition Expands FCG’s Geographic Footprint, Adds Key Talent and Experience in the Data Center Market

The Fleming Construction Group (FCG) is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement to acquire the Program Accounts and Construction Services divisions of BlueScope Construction from BlueScope Buildings North America, effective February 5th, 2024. The acquisition expands FCG’s existing geographical footprint to include a new office and team in Kansas City, MO, and it supports FCG’s growth and diversification plans by adding experience and capabilities in the rapidly growing data center market.

The new Fleming Kansas City team has supplied and erected an impressive 4.5M+ square feet of structural steel, roof and wall cladding solutions for data centers across multiple client campuses in the US over the past decade, something few other companies in this space can claim.

In addition, the acquisition immediately accelerates FCG’s growth and development in three primary service areas:

  • Capability – Expands best-in-class steel erection capabilities and capacity in what was already the 4th largest pre-engineered building systems erection firm, Fleming Steel Erectors.
  • Support –  Adds more proven professionals to assist with remote general contracting services to support our repeat industrial development clients.
  • Expertise – Further establishes Fleming 8760 as the most accomplished metal roof installation, repair, and retrofit experts in the industry.

“This acquisition brings together two preeminent brands in the industry who share a commitment to safety, quality, and efficiency in the field and for building trust, talent and passion in our respective organizations and communities. We couldn’t be more excited to welcome them to the FCG Family,” said FCG CEO, Tom O’Brien. 

The relationship between BlueScope Construction and Fleming dates back over 50 years and more than 50 million square feet in project collaborations during that time.


“As with the Rainwater acquisition in 2021, this represents another opportunity to reshape a recognized name in the industry and add significant talent to our expanding organization,” said FCG President, Justin Willett. “The best teams usually win, and when you look at the talent now assembled at FCG, the sky is the limit for what we can accomplish together.” 

With this acquisition, the Fleming Construction Group looks forward to delivering an even higher caliber of steel solutions and construction services to our clients and greater opportunities for our team to benefit from thriving careers and opportunity for advancement.
