Company History


ANDERSON Construction, Inc. originated in Los Angeles in 1928 by Lawrence W. Anderson, under contractor’s license #117984. In 1978, two generations later, Lawrence (Larry) R. Anderson assumed ownership of the business and acquired his own contractor’s license (#359767 and later #440725.)

Prior to owning the business, Larry worked as a tradesman in the field performing hands-on work in multiple trades, running crews and acting as superintendent. Larry gives close personal attention to each project and the workload is always limited at any given time to maintain cost, schedule, and quality control. He operated ANDERSON Construction from 1978 to 1984, constructing custom homes and various commercial projects such as banks, tilt-up warehouses, medical office interiors, low-rise office buildings, commercial office interiors and some retail work.

From 1984-1987, Larry took an Estimating / Project Management position at a mid-size $60 Million per year commercial general contractor, learning more sophisticated ways of running work and managing the construction process.

Meanwhile, second-generation Don Anderson maintained ANDERSON Construction, Inc. operations and the company did commercial work for clients such as Kodak, Budweiser, and Los Angeles Unified Schools.

Larry went on to work for Dinwiddie Construction, a $300 Million per year company, for seven years as Chief Estimator, Senior Project Manager, and Project Executive. He worked on many of the largest construction projects in the Western United States such as the Getty Museum and clients like Disney, Toyota, and CBS Television.

From 1993 to 1996 Larry acted as Branch Manager for DPR Construction’s Los Angeles and Orange County operations, which at the time was the third fastest-growing privately held company in the United States.

In 1996, Larry re-joined ANDERSON Construction, Inc. operations and acts as the President and CEO of the company - pursuing work primarily in the commercial & industrial markets, with a division dedicated specifically to Life Sciences and Advanced Technology.
