The Company

Since 2001, Lake View General Contracting, Inc. has been providing professional project management and construction for projects throughout Alaska.  Ray Kizer, President of the firm, has over 35 years of experience in the construction industry in Alaska. His varied construction experience throughout the state is an asset to any client. Lake View General Contracting is licensed, bonded and insured as a General Contractor in the State of Alaska. The company can bond up to $12,000,000 on any single job with a $20,000,000 aggregate bonding limit. Since inception, Lake View General Contracting has maintained strong financial stability. Currently, we have the financial ability to control funds for larger projects consistent with our bonding limits. Lake View General Contracting is proud to have the resources typically seen with larger contractors, while still maintaining a size and work load that allows for excellent customer attention.

Lake View General Contracting has a long history of successfully performing difficult projects for GCI and other
Alaskan companies. We believe in a cohesive team effort on all of our projects. We work directly with our prime subcontractors to successfully provide pricing and constructability services.

 

Quality Control

We understand that quality, safety and efficiency are the three most important markers during construction. The Project Managers and Superintendents utilize and recognize their responsibility of quality control and work with the entire team to achieve a healthy and safe atmosphere. Overall Lake View is ultimately responsible, but we believe and educate that our entire on-site teams are held accountable for achieving safe, efficient working standards. It starts with the Superintendent and goes through the entire site crew right down to the guy tightening nuts and bolts. With this philosophy, everyone is working together with a watchful eye and dedicated spirit.

Submittals are checked thoroughly before items are ordered and we also do thorough inventory searches of all material that reach the job site. Lake View General Contracting preforms weekly quality control meetings as well as safety meetings with all
hands working on site.

Our construction QC program is designed to accomplish the following:
1. Assure that the work is executed to guard against defects and deficiencies and to substantiate that the
construction complies with the project specifications and/or requirements.
2. Confirm that the actual materials and supplies delivered to the site and incorporated into the work
conform to the specifications and the approved submittals.
3. Confirm that all installations are conducted in accordance with the Manufacturer’s written installation
instructions and/or specifications and that installers are qualified to perform their work.
All special inspection and testing work are documented with written reports. All persons performing the
QC/QA work have sufficient authority and organizational autonomy to identify quality problems and to
initiate, recommend, and verify implementation of solutions.

 

EQUIPMENT AND FACILITIES

Lake View General Contracting maintains an excellent fleet of vehicles, equipment and tools to efficiently see the completion of many different types of projects. Much of this equipment is specially fitted to handle the harsh environment Alaska can offer. 

In addition to our tools and equipment, Lake View General Contracting also maintains a year round workforce of highly qualified and experienced superintendents, carpenters, iron workers and general laborers.
