No other company in Sri Lanka has this tremendous depth of knowledge in the field of construction like we have. This advantage we possess, in reality, is your strength.Way back in 1915 when British rulers were governing our country, one capable enterprising young man by the name of Charles Fernando, the grand father of the present Chairman began working along with the British construction companies of that time as he was a capable and keen person who was able to win the confidence of the British Engineers. This dependability in him paved the way for his son, C.U. Fernando to subsequently join his father in the construction arena and form his own Company, namely C.U. Fernando & Co. and this firm was one of the seven building construction firms that was recognised by the British to submit tenders for any amount to the public work Department of the day. In time, he surpassed the already admired capabilities of his father. This factor is clearly evident by the gesture of the discerning British authorities who entrusted him with building prestigious projects of construction of Police Dept. Head Quarters at Fort, base at Katunayake and the Kalubowila Government Hospital etc. just to name a few.
