LM Construction was founded in 1996 by commercial contractor Larry Monkarsh, a third generation contractor and builder. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Larry undertook his first large-scale building project at age 17 when he built four condominium units in Malibu.

Larry graduated from Cal State Long Beach and immediately jumped into his career as a commercial builder and property manager for EJM Development.

“I went into the family business, EJM Development right out of school, building custom homes in Encino, California,” said Larry. “In 1995, when the real estate market declined, we went into renovating apartment buildings and existing units. I renovated three or four buildings with about a $20 million price tag. It was then that I knew I had the ability to manage large-scale jobs and was meant to be a commercial builder.”

Monkarsh took his building skills to areas of the Southwest that offered the greatest opportunity. He advanced his skills in Sun Valley, Idaho where he renovated condominium properties and began fine tuning his business and property management skills.

In 1995 Larry moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where the construction trade was booming. Larry found work as a superintendent for Oltman’s Construction for his first year in Las Vegas. Putting all of his experience to work for himself, in 1996 Larry Monkarsh opened LM Construction Co.
