LCS is a general contracting company that was founded by a core team of specialists who have worked together on laboratory design and technical facility projects since 1980. That team opened the first LCS corporate office in San Juan Capistrano, California, in 1991 in order to support laboratory owners throughout Southern California. Based on the needs of lab owners throughout the area, the scope of services grew to include lab design support, engineering, construction management services, and maintenance of lab facilities — a natural expansion, considering the range of experience of its team. The geographical range of projects quickly expanded to include Nevada, Utah, Arizona, Texas and New Mexico.
