Innovative & cost effective solutions for civil construction and muncipal works.

Quality Sitework Materials: Our Core Values

Our VISION is … is to become the leading provider of innovative & cost effective civil construction solutions.

Our MISSION is … to differentiate ourselves in the civil construction & municipal works industry by providing the highest quality products, by listening to the needs of our customers & employees, … and by delivering innovative solutions to achieve sustainable profitability for all involved.

Every time we step on the field of play, we carry with us these attributes and focus.


Our Core Values include … THE NOW – “Nothing ever happened in the past; it happened in ‘the Now.’ Nothing will ever happen in the future; it will happen in ‘the Now; CANDOR – Always be up-front, straight-forward and to-the-point; INTEGRITY – Being whole and undivided through honesty and strong moral principles; OWNERSHIP – Take responsibility for all actions and see tasks through to the end; RESPECT – The Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” EXCELLENCE – Failure is not an option. HAVE FUN – Enjoyment and excitement are tantamount to success!

Our Core Values have shaped our culture since the very beginning and they are still relevant today. They act as our guiding light, our daily benchmark, the signposts that guide us on our journey. Through these core values, we promise to speak and act consistently across our business at all times.

AT QSM we think of core values as the true north of our company compass. No matter which direction we may tack, these values remain steady and true. They don’t describe what we hope to achieve, or how we will achieve it, or even why we hope to do so. Rather, core values get at the way in which our team promises to act. They identify our character and culture. This is what QSM stands for.

Core values aren’t just a list of lofty words or phrases that we picked from a hat. This is our philosophy for business, and for living. It’s a product of introspection, deliberation, collaboration, and … consensus amongst our team. The goal is to provide a foundation with principles, and to inspire every member of our team.

The benefits extend throughout the company, in every personal interaction, and in every conversation and interaction we have with customers, colleagues, and associates throughout our line of work.


QSM is Louisiana’s most experienced provider of site prep and civil construction solutions. We work with engineers, architects, landscape professionals — and with municipal water and waste water facilities to provide you with the highest quality products and excellent service.

In the end, … these values allow us to hire engaged employees who feel excited about providing you with the utmost care and attention. We treat  our core values like a guiding compass more than a formality. In doing so, we have built a positive atmosphere for our team and our customers.
