Our Culture and Philosophy

With over 5 decades of working with teams in the construction industry, Van Laan Concrete Construction has earned a reputation among local and national clients for exemplary and dependable concrete construction. This philosophy rests on the foundation of our people. A team of motivated people who enjoy their work and have a deep desire to meet and exceed our customers expectations.

Our people have us standing out from the competition; we pride ourselves on attacking challenges with a cooperative mindset. Caring for others as much as ourselves is who we are at VanLaan—fundamentally doing what’s right, rather than fighting over who is right will determine our approach.

Committed to the well being of our employees and their families, the VanLaan benefit / compensation package leads the industry.  Our health care package offers generous coverage with minimal out of pocket costs, as well as Flexible Spending, and Insurance for Life, Accident, Disability and Cancer. Our people also enjoy a generous matching 401k / profit sharing plan. Seasonal bonuses, paid vacation and holidays continue to keep the company team motivated as well.

Ensuring continual satisfaction with their vocation, VanLaan provides opportunities for training and individual development. Extensive craft training is provided in house or through one of several industry related associations.

An enthusiastic commitment to a safe working environment for our team and partners ensures everyone returns home safely. Comprehensive training provides individual and corporate knowledge and experience to ensure we are as safe as we can be. Starting with new hire orientation, this training includes project specific planning, weekly team talks, annual companywide training, OSHA 30 hour, and specific individual training.  We are also committed to a 100% drug-free workplace and administer pre-employment screening and random drug testing.  Our Safety program is a two-time winner of the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) Safety Training Evaluation Process (STEP) Award.
