We believe that the ability to successfully manage a construction project – its budgets, schedules, and personnel – is critical today. That said, we should never let quality take a back seat to speedy delivery; craftsmanship must not be overshadowed by salesmanship. In the end, your new facility – whether it be a place of work, worship or family – will stand on its own merit. That success will be determined by the experience, quality and integrity of the people you hire.
– Carl Lamar, Founder of CL Construction

I started with CL in January 2021. Before CL, I built custom homes and installed metal roofs on the east side of Michigan. My wife and I moved to Holland in August 2019 and have loved being a part of the community here in Holland. When I’m not at work, I can be found mountain biking, or at the dog park with our crazy Australian Shepherd.
Carl Lamar was born and raised into a family of construction workers. You could say it is “in his blood.” Carl grew up helping his father and siblings with small tasks for their family construction business, Lamar Construction. When Carl Lamar had completed his education, he began to work full time for the family’s construction business and eventually became part owner. As the construction company grew and evolved with the changing times, Carl realized his personal goals were changing too.
Carl had a strong desire to have his own construction company with his sons. He wanted to get back to the basics of dealing directly with customers and managing each project to the finest of details to ensure the highest of quality. After much thought, many prayers, and 35 years of construction experience, Carl Lamar founded CL Construction in 1994. Carl Lamar’s oldest son, Ross Lamar, immediately started working for his father and they hired one more project manager. The three of them worked diligently for the next two years and it became apparent through the workload that the company needed to expand.
CL Construction has grown to boast of three project managers, two construction crews, an office manager and a new office facility in Holland, Michigan. CL Construction’s experienced staff prides themselves on quality and integrity and is excited to help you with your next construction project.
