" We are a team of hard working collaborators, who thrive on difficult projects by pushing the envelope to help our customers think outside of the box." - Sterling Black, CEO

Built For The Challenge

“When I set off, I knew it would be hard work, but worth the effort. Nothing comes easy in this world and I knew it. I was ready”

Founder , LS Black Constructors

our beginning

LS Black Constructors was founded in 1977 by, Larry S. Black.  After completing his graduate studies in Michigan, Larry quickly caught on with a national contractor in the Twin Cities, serving and building for many of the fortune 500 companies all over the country.   Larry, a no-nonsense entrepreneur with an unbridled passion to design, engineer and construct buildings the right way, realized with the experiences he has now gained, it was time to forge out on his own.

Larry’s humble approach to his work, tough attitude, and roll-up your sleeves work ethic are the foundation of who we are today.

new ownership

In 2007 the company was sold to Larry’s son, Sterling Black.  Sterling maintains the same steadfast approach to business as his father, attacking everything he does with an aggressive, out-think, out-work, and out-perform mindset.  LS Black’s focus remains the same; delivering a great client experience, regardless of the market profile or conditions of the project site.   With our core values serving as guiding principles, we’re not only up for any challenge, we’re built for it.
