"Where We Started” - In April 1999, our two Innovative Construction Solutions (ICS) founders set out with a purpose: to build a different environmental construction company, on the foundation of building trust and lasting relationships - the “why” behind everything we do today.
Reflecting on our humble beginnings, our journey began in Aliso Viejo within Co-Founder Hirad’s kitchen, where himself and Co-Founder John converted the kitchen space into a makeshift office! Later on, in our introductory year of business, Hirad and John set their sights on their first small office and warehouse space in Huntington Beach, where the two shared their office. Spending days in the field and nights in the office, they were laser-focused on delivering on their purpose by providing best-in-class responsiveness, service, and adding value whenever possible. Soon after the move, they made their first two permanent hires in the field, both who are still with the ICS family today!
Through trials and triumphs, our early opportunities and challenges shaped us. We solidified our core values while dedicating our daily lives to laying the foundation for what ICS is today. As we reflect on our 25-year journey, we`re immensely proud of the legacy we`ve built through our work and the relationships we`ve nurtured since those formative years of 1999 from Hirad’s kitchen!
