The VMC approach has inspired confidence on clients and produced a remarkable record of successful projects.

Vance McCown knows the construction business from the ground up. His Father was a realtor, contractor, and developer who build structures from single family dwellings to multi-story condominiums. At an early age, Vance McCown learned the most important values which would guide him as a contractor: open communication not only with the client, but with all those involved in the project to serve the client's needs solely. Vance McCown graduated from Louisiana State University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science degree in construction.
Vance McCown recognizes that as the contractor, he must understand completely the needs and requirements of the owner, architect, and engineer. Then, the contractor can effectively work with the entire team so that the project fully satisfies the requirements of the owner. VMC will work with the owner and his representatives to select the appropriate site, to solve design problems, to stay on budget, and to complete each stage of the project on schedule.
VMC provides valuable services which eliminate costly mistakes. VMC advises owners on site acquisition and will employ architects and engineers to suit the particular project needs. Then VMC works as a partner with the construction team to recommend construction types and methods to reduce costs to the minimum while providing fully for the owner's requirements.
VMC is experienced in each phase of construction. Beginning with site development and concluding with a certificate of occupancy, VMC provides a full range of construction services. VMC is a dealer for Butler Manufacturing, the leader in pre-engineered structures and building systems. VMC customizes every project to satisfy the unique needs of each client.
The VMC partnership produces total satisfaction. VMC total involvement in the project creates open communication and trust which minimizes the risk of the owner, architect/engineer and contractor becoming adversaries during the course of the project.
