Carlson Family Core Values

Carlson Projects is a family owned construction and remodeling company. We pride ourselves on the work that we do, but it all starts with the lifeblood of what we’re all about.

At our core, we base every project on five main core values.  

  • We are a team.
      1. In a similar way to a solid family, the employees of Carlson Projects are always working as a team. Just like with any family, arguments and disagreements happen. We’re constantly reminding ourselves that we’re on the same team and have the same goal at the end of the day. Disagreements are usually spawned by passion for the project, and we strive to solve problems together, and we want to be part of your project together with you.
  • We are ambassadors.
      1. What we mean by “we are ambassadors,” is that whenever we go into a client’s home, we treat it like it’s our own home – or our parents, grandparents, really anyone we care deeply about. We make sure to make cuts where it won’t generate a lot of dust and we’re always sure to clean up after ourselves if we do have to make a mess. Another stable of being an ambassador is that we’re not only polite to the homeowner, but also each other. Our standard is higher when we’re on a job site because we want the entire experience to be as pleasant as possible – even if it’s not actually interacting with us, but overhearing us interact with each other. We wouldn’t want someone working in your home that we wouldn’t want in our own.

 

  • We’ll never stop learning.
      1. This one might be more self explanatory, but as we’ve mentioned before, things don’t always go as planned on job sites. Furthermore, we constantly run into design and construction challenges we didn’t expect or hadn’t seen before. We’re constantly working together to learn the best ways to solve the problem and asking the homeowner questions to make sure we’re fitting their needs. Rather than settling for the traditional ways of “how we’ve always done it,” we strive to push the envelope with new materials, methods and different ways to serve the client’s needs. This means we don’t like to cut corners, but make sure everything is up to snuff, down to the last detail.

 

  • We work with a greater purpose.
      1. Carlson Projects prides our work on doing so with a greater purpose. This means something different to everyone on the team, but it keeps our quality of work a cut above. For some people on the team, their greater purpose is their family. For others, it’s traveling the world or other hobbies. As a family, we live out our days trying to achieve a servants heart for the Lord, so naturally, as a company, we’re always trying to do our part to be stewards of God’s plan and purpose. We’re doing more than just construction and remodeling, we’re serving while we’re at work.

 

  • We build relationships, not clients.
    1. The last thing that we would want is for our business to be strictly transactional. We don’t have inbound salespeople trying to win as many bids as possible, complete a job behind closed doors and collect a check. At the end of the project, we hope that you feel like you gained more than a new kitchen or home addition, but also a friend. It’s our goal to make sure you feel like we not only did a great job on the project, but that you genuinely enjoyed the experience and the process. This includes educating you on the process, answering any questions you may have, and building our business around making sure you’re satisfied to the nth degree.
