Our Proven Process

The LS Black Difference

In the ultra-competitive industry of Construction, consumers have options and way too many of them.  We’ve built a successful, sustainable business by focusing on delivering a world class customer experience.  Our people are empowered to drive and execute on that commitment, recognizing the cause and effect of every decision they make. 

Warren Buffet once said, “culture eats strategy for breakfast,” and we believe it!  Over the past forty years, every challenge we have overcome has provided us with an incredible opportunity to refine our processes and make us a better company.  You can’t fake passion.  We’re driven to be the best with everything we do. Our drive comes from our commitment to inspire a better way to construct, exploiting our teams core competencies of innovation, collaboration, and execution.
