LS Black Constructors was founded in 1977 by Larry Stanley (LS) Black. Larry, a hard working Canadian with a background in the construction trades and experience working for a structural engineering firm, moved to Michigan to attend grad school. After earning a degree and receiving his green card, Larry and his wife, Norma, moved to Minneapolis to start a family and pursue a career in the construction industry. Working for a larger general contractor out of St. Cloud, Larry was able to build strong relationships in the area with decision makers at the IDS Center and Target, enabling him to start his own construction firm. Larry’s hard-work, perseverence, and dedication to his craft eventually resulted in 20+ employees, and moved from Larry’s van to the building we occupy today.
