Our management team receives training in construction quality management from several engineering groups, universities, and owners such as the US Army Corps of Engineers.
We take pride in our work, and are dedicated to the work we contract to perform.
Quality control is maintained on the site through the use of initial phase check lists and daily quality control reports, which monitor and measure areas of concern such as testing, inspections, material compliance, and confirmation of specifications.
Our projects have little or no items on correctional punch lists at the final inspection. We don't move on until the work is complete. Our goal is to provide the best "Fit and Finish" for each project we undertake.
We are dedicated to performing our work in the safest manner possible, consistent with proven construction practices. Our commitment to safety pays by protecting our most valuable assets: our craftsmen, machinery and reputation. Our dedication to safety rewards every team member with pride, security and peace of mind.

C.V. Larsen Co. acknowledges the depletion of the world's natural resources and accepts responsibility to mitigate this depletion. We do this by employing construction methods that are Eco-friendly. Ecological construction is building in ways that are beneficial and non-harmful to the environment and by being resource efficient. The following are some of the methods used in our daily practices:
USE LOW IMPACT MATERIALS: Salvaged, recycled or recycle content material; avoid toxic material, avoid limited supply material such as old-growth timber and minimize shipping requirements;
RECYCLE WASTE: Return, reuse and recycle: Concrete, lumber, asphalt and metals.
PROTECT VEGETATION AND TOPSOIL: Best management practices for erosion control. Reintroduce native species on graded areas. Protect topsoil. Avoid pesticides and toxic chemicals.
EQUIPMENT: All equipment is registered with California Air Resources Board to monitor and regulate Co2 emissions. Lowest idle time practices. Equipment maintained leak free to prevent contamination by engine fluids.
PROTECTION OF WATER RESOURCES: Using minimum amounts of water needed for construction. Protection of watersheds with state of the art erosion control methods and leak-free equipment.
PROTECTION OF WILDLIFE: All areas of work are evaluated for native wildlife. Specially trained personnel work closely with local and federal agencies' biologists and naturalists to monitor for and protect wildlife. Environmentally sensitive habitats are protected and undisturbed.
Utilizing these disciplines as our foundation, we can give you the best value for your construction dollar.
