Like so many ‘overnight’ successes, the story of M&F started with one man’s pursuit of the American Dream. Fernando Silva believed that it would take more than just hard work to succeed. Honesty and reliability—combined with excruciating attention to every detail—and consistently delivering quality results would be his company’s competitive advantage.

  • Do what needs to be done to get the job done right, even when out of scope or unexpected
  • Offering sensible alternatives rather than making promises that can’t be kept
  • Never miss a deadline, be late for an appointment, or make an excuse
  • Embrace responsibility, anticipate obstacles, and educate customers on alternatives
  • Nurture partnerships with tradespeople who share the same vision and offer customers turnkey solutions
  • 'Good enough' is never good enough
  • Always find a way to exceed customer expectations

Marcos Silva is profiled as an SBA Local Success Story in the 2018-2019 Virginia Edition of the Annual SBA Resource Guide.

When he passed prematurely, pursuing that righteous dream, M&F continued to prosper under the leadership of his son, Marcos Silva. Now nearing our 2nd decade of honoring that legacy, M&F has likely become far more than Fernando could have ever imagined.

M&F provides end to end construction services—experts in Design/Build for the public, Federal, commercial, and residential sectors. Currently, we’re able to respond to customers’ needs anywhere across the Mid-Atlantic, Northeast, and Southeast.

Leveraging Technology and Innovation, M&F capabilities continue to evolve while remaining true to our founding principles. M&F has created a new Gold Standard for workmanship and unwavering commitment to completing contracts that now, all other providers are measured against.

M&F wholly owns our equipment, trucks, specialty vehicles, road signage, and tools providing us the capability to attend to every job, reliably. Whether improving a roadway or walkway, building a hospital or day care center, working with the National Parks Service, or when contracted at military and Federal facilities including the White House and some of our great nation’s most recognizable memorials, M&F has the right equipment and experienced manpower to mobilize, even on short notice.

Hard work, combined with honesty and reliability are the foundations of every M&F build. Experience, and taking pride in our work is how we consistently deliver craftsman quality results.
