HOW IT ALL STARTED
In 2010, a bold vision was born in the most unlikely of places – a small garage with three picnic tables, a laptop, and a plotter. It was here that a dedicated and visionary individual, alongside two daring partners, established what would become Advanced Framing Structures (AFS).
Their mission was simple yet ambitious – to redefine the rough carpentry industry and set new standards of excellence. Central to their approach was a deep commitment to delivering unmatched customer service, an attribute that would distinguish them from their competitors.
What started in a humble garage soon transformed into a thriving company, attracting talented individuals who shared the same passion for excellence. Today, AFS is proud to have a team of over 150 skilled employees, each contributing their expertise and commitment to delivering exceptional results.
With a customer-centric approach, a talented team, and a commitment to pushing the boundaries of excellence, AFS continues to redefine the industry. We are proud of our legacy, but always strive to reach new heights.
At AFS, caring for people is at the heart of everything we do. We believe that success is measured by the positive impact we have on the lives of individuals. Our core value of caring for people goes beyond serving our customers and extends to our employees, partners, and the communities we serve. We strive to create a nurturing and inclusive work environment, where every individual is valued, respected, and provided with opportunities to grow and thrive. We prioritize the well-being and development of our team members, fostering a culture of empathy, support, and collaboration. By caring for people, we aim to make a meaningful difference and create a legacy of compassion and kindness.

We believe in cultivating leaders at all levels, empowering them to make informed decisions, inspire their teams, and drive positive change. We encourage an environment where team members freely exchange ideas, share knowledge, and provide feedback. This communication allows us to identify opportunities for improvement, address potential issues promptly, and make data-driven decisions to enhance our performance.
We believe that providing options is a crucial part of our path to success. We recognize that offering flexibility and choice to our clients is essential in meeting their unique needs and delivering exceptional value. Through careful analysis and evaluation, we identify opportunities to optimize designs, materials, and construction methods without compromising quality or functionality.

FIND THE YES ALWAYS MAKES IT RIGHT
The philosophy of “always finding the yes” means that we go above and beyond to meet customer needs and exceed their expectations. When faced with a challenge or request, we approach it with a mindset of finding a solution rather than focusing on limitations or obstacles. We explore creative alternatives, leverage our expertise and resources, and proactively work towards delivering on our commitments.
