Each year Professional Remodeler honors a selection of industry standouts to represent the emerging influencers in the field today. LivCo is humbled that Principal and Co-Founder Dave Pollard was chosen to join the 2018 40 Under 40 Class.
LivCo Co-founder Russell Head noted, "Being a small and relatively new business that performs both architectural design and residential construction, there are many hats to wear, and Dave has worn them all well. Dave’s ability to have a vision for the brand and differentiation of our company while leading the design, sales, and marketing front sets an example for employees to follow. It is a vision focused on a quest to be the best and learn as much as we possibly can along the way. He demonstrates respect, trust, resolve, determination, and passion every day which is reflected in the culture and work ethic of our company."
Russell added, "He has tested, proved, and leveraged the value of design in residential remodeling and construction. Often thought of as a luxury or unnecessary cost, Dave has shown through his work that more and more clients crave and are looking for good design, they just don’t know how to find it or go about beginning the process. Dave and I have shaped LivCo to be able to respond to this market. Dave delivers smart, good design by listening to our clients, and we integrally convert that to a real budget and a final finished product that accurately matches the design intent."

LivCo is excited to have Mark join our Design + Build Team - with over 20 years of experience in Residential Construction & Remodeling; Mark brings a sense of operational and management excellence to help take LivCo to the next level.
At LivCo, we ask all of our potential clients why they are considering remodeling instead of moving? We also ask them to rank how they value the budget of their project:
(a) Improvements must appraise out,
(b) We are focused on investing in our quality of life through our home
(c) we want improved quality of life, but want to stay close and consider the relative property values of the neighborhood
More often than not, "C" is number one. Our clients are looking for improvements that help them enjoy their daily activities in their home with their families, but they look to us to help them make informed value judgements on where to best spend their money in their home.
We also use Remodeling Magazine's Cost vs. Value Report to help our clients understand the expected costs of specific scopes of work so that we can best master plan their project with their budget in mind. FORBES Magazine reviewed the Cost vs. Value and offers some sage advice:
