Bobby has been working in the Construction Business his entire life starting in his family’s Material Supply and Ready-Mix business. Bobby’s family owned masonry and concrete supply houses that worked in heavy and highway markets, bridge decks, high-rise buildings design and concrete forms. Upon the sale of the family business, Bobby shifted into residential construction where he learned the art of building a quality home at a reduced construction pace, gaining valuable experience in his role as construction production manager where he controlled all aspects of the superintendents, suppliers and subcontractors to meet the goal of completing homes on time. At the peak of his involvement in the home market Fischer was overseeing 15 subdivisions and closing 120 home per year.
Bobby then focussed his skills in the residential, commercial and highway concrete forming market through the 80‘s and 90's. From there, his career moved into Residential Development and Historical Rehabilitation. He developed a historical rehab business in which there were 50 complete renovations of 1800’s Victorian-style homes that were renovated in Benton Park in historical Central West End area in St. Louis. Using historical state and federal tax credit and building to those guidelines. His commercial division did build-outs in the same historical area, renovating old historical buildings into multi-family and commercial adjoining to restaurants, stores, bars and nightclubs. His biggest success was the Maryland Center’s $32 million historical rehabilitation project with 21 renovated structures. He worked with Rothchild Developers on that project and several others in the St. Louis area for many years.
He later worked in the residential, commercial and highway concrete forming market through the 80‘s and 90's. From there, his career moved into Residential Development and Historical Rehabilitation. In 2009 he was hired by Patterson Shoring in New Orleans, where he first entered the Structure Elevation Market. With his background and strong knowledge of foundation carpentry, home-building and rehabilitation, he was the perfect candidate for Project Management in the Elevation Industry. While working first for Patterson Shoring, then Expert House Movers and Ducky Johnson, Bobby was the Lead Project Manager for the turn-key elevation projects. This included overseeing the entire process including proposals, estimating and design.
Bobby Fischer on the front page of the Galveston Daily News:
"The four houses to be lifted in the Empress Lane neighborhood are from 2,000 to 4,000 square feet and weigh about 225 tons, said Bobby Fischer, project manager for Expert House Movers.
The lifting process does not disturb the inside of the house, he said. Tunnels are dug under the house, and jacks and pilings are put in place. The jacks are hooked up to a unified jack system, which ensures the house comes up evenly, Fischer said.”
