Innovative solutions, solid foundations.

Many people will only build one home in their lifetime. At Fields Construction, we work hard to make the homebuilding experience stress-free, enjoyable, and fulfilling for you. 

The satisfaction of Fields Construction home buyers comes from both a dedicated construction team and a family atmosphere, where we guide you through the building process every step of the way. The management and construction of each project reflects our dedication to quality and cooperation. Peter Fields, the founder of the company, set a precedent of outstanding work on every build. The hard work and dedication of his daughter, Jennifer Fields Hungate, as well as the rest of the Fields construction team, is the reason that Fields continues to go over and above standard construction methods today. With commitment to excellence from both Fields Construction and each trade contractor involved, we work hard to ensure the timely delivery of service on every home. 

When we complete your home, we will be as proud of it as you are. We have found this is the only way to deliver exceptional value and craftsmanship. We want to help you translate your vision into a dream home that you can enjoy for years to come.

Jennifer Fields Hungate, President

As the second-generation owner of Fields Construction, Jennifer is the creative lead for the building team on every project. Growing up on and off the job sites, her passion for building and creating found a home when she officially began her career in the family business upon graduation from Virginia Tech. The urge to build runs in the Fields blood! Today, Jennifer works personally with each client, leading them through the building process, from pre-design to owner turnover. She helps translate each client’s vision into a top-quality home, tailored and customized exactly to their needs. Adding energy-efficient, high quality housing to the local community is something she takes pride in.

As a local community advocate, Jennifer actively participates on the boards of the Roanoke Regional Homebuilders Association and the North Roanoke Rec Club, as well as her children’s school PTA. When not on a job site or volunteering in the community, you will find her anywhere and everywhere outside in the Roanoke Valley with her husband Nathan, and their children Blair and Tyler.

Nathan Hungate, New Home Sales and Land Development

A native of North Roanoke and a graduate of Roanoke College, Nathan’s roots in the area run deep. With over 20 years in new construction and real estate sales, he has had the opportunity to help many in the Roanoke Valley realize their housing goals. Nathan oversees the process from sales to production. His pre-construction services include building and maintaining relationships with clients as well as communicating and working them through the initial steps of the process.  Whether it’s new land development, lot procurement for your custom home build, or getting you settled in one of our new developments, Nathan will work with you to find the perfect setting for your future.

When not on a project, Nathan is usually found on a local golf course or basketball court, or pacing the sidelines at one of his children’s soccer games. 

Todd Smith, Lead Superintendent

Todd, possibly born gripping a hammer, has over 25 years of experience leading crews in new home construction. His focus on customer service and cooperation among our trade contractors helps Fields Construction finish homes with excellence and on time. Todd’s expectation of quality construction from our partners keeps every project running smoothly and allows us to deliver a top-quality project. His broad knowledge of all things home makes him an indispensable asset to the company. He constantly inspires the Fields team with his dedication to the art of construction. 

When not on a project site, he’ll have his hands in the dirt of one of his home gardens. Life stays busy and happy in his Salem household with his wife, Anna, and four active children.

Tyler Smith, Site Assistant

Tyler joined his father Todd early on at Fields Construction as a part-time helper during his high school summers. Those summers quickly lead to a full-time position learning about and assisting in all of the day-to-day activities on an active job site. Today, Tyler is responsible for the visual scope of each project and helps keep each new home build running smoothly. 

Outside of his continuous learning about the craft of building, you might catch him on one of his locally broadcast podcasts discussing rising stars in the area sports scene, or buffing up at the gym.  

Laura Bower, Accounting Manager

For 20 years, Laura has handled all the finances and accounting for Fields Construction. Fortunately, attention to detail is her specialty. She keeps the lights on and everyone on track through her kind, clear, and prompt instruction. 

Laura and her husband Dean also grow some of the best flowers and produce in Botetourt County. Nearly three seasons of the year, you can find her on the weekends at the Botetourt Farmers Market selling their bounty. Entrepreneurship is a family trait with Dean and their son’s commercial cabinetry installation business, and their daughter’s Fincastle-based plant shop. 

Peter Fields, Founder

In 1992, Peter left a commercial construction management career to start Fields Construction, Inc. along with his wife, Vivian. Peter quickly established a reputation for high quality, value engineered, custom and semi-custom design/build construction. Over the course of the next 30 years, he cultivated a construction environment based on honesty, integrity, and quality craftsmanship. Peter’s emphasis on quality and customer service continues to be the foundation of Fields Construction today. 

While he has retired from the homebuilding part of the team, Peter can still be found working on land development projects with Fields Construction. An alumni of Virginia Tech, he remains active in the Roanoke Regional Home Builders Association and the Home Builders Association of Virginia. His true passion lies in community service through his involvement with the Rotary Club of Roanoke Valley, Kids Soar of Roanoke, and Bonsack United Methodist Church. When not walking a piece of land or volunteering his time, he and Vivian can likely be found patronizing a local bakery or coffee shop, while planning their next road trip adventure.

Megan and Jim
Not only did you complete our home with fine detail, you also took the extra steps to ensure that everyone was completely satisfied. I have been recommending you to all of my friends.
If they gave out stars for good deeds, you’d own a galaxy! All of you guys have been so nice with building and then even helping me after I moved in.
It’s hard to find someone who takes pride and goes beyond the call of duty. Each day we appreciate the quality of our home and feel fortunate to be dealing with a professional company.
Michael and Sally
