The strength of a company lies largely with its employees. In the construction industry, the caliber of every employee is critical because, like a link in our chain of excellence, each has the ability to affect the outcome and quality of a job. Details count, so each member of the construction team must take a proactive approach to all aspects of a project. At Carlson-LaVine, we have a permanent workforce of highly trained craftspeople who join us to build their careers for one simple reason: they share our commitment to excellence. Each employee stays at the cutting edge with training and a company-wide policy that encourages them to take a leadership role in the outcome of each project. With one of the lowest turnover rates in the industry, Carlson-LaVine is proud of its employees and the expertise and level of care they bring to each project to ensure a successful outcome.
In this age of specialization, Carlson-LaVine has become known for its expertise in building healthcare, retail, hospitality, financial, and education facilities that not only serve the needs of their clients effectively, but also contribute positively to the larger communities. The company founders were forward thinkers who encouraged sensitivity to the environment, and Carlson-LaVine applies every new technological advance and educates its workforce to soar to an industry leadership position in building with environmentally sound principles.
For Carlson-LaVine, green is much more than just a complementary color—it is a total way of thinking that encourages us to evaluate each step of the construction process with consideration, both short and long-term, of the potential environmental impact. As a result, our projects are more than just cutting edge; they are also extremely cost and energy effective, thereby saving our clients money and energy over the long run.
