Our word is in our work. This statement is so much more than just a slogan for us at ECC. Our word is our bond. Everything we do, we strive to do within our core values of Integrity, Honesty and Commitment – to each other, to our clients, and to the communities we serve.

At Environmental Contracting Corporation (ECC), we are committed to building a sustainable future for our communities in Los Angeles and beyond. We believe in leaving our communities better than we found them, and this commitment is reflected in every aspect of our operations.

We are proud to report that we divert over 85% of job site trash from landfills through rigorous recycling and waste management practices. Additionally, we prioritize paper reduction firm-wide whenever possible, implementing digital solutions to minimize our environmental footprint.

Furthermore, we actively seek out subcontractors who share our commitment to environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles. By partnering with subcontractors with ESG strategies in place, we ensure that our projects are not only environmentally responsible but also contribute positively to the communities we serve.

At ECC, sustainability is not just an industry tagline – it’s in our name and a core value that guides everything we do. Together with our partners and stakeholders, we are building a more sustainable future for generations to come.

We are deeply committed to fostering a culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work. We recognize that diversity is not just a goal but a fundamental strength that drives innovation, creativity, and success.

We actively partner with subcontractors and clients to ensure that diversity metrics are not only met but exceeded on all projects. By prioritizing diversity in our partnerships, we create opportunities for underrepresented groups and contribute to a more inclusive construction industry.

Within our own organization, we are proud to have a staff that represents an array of ethnic backgrounds, ages, religions, sexual orientations, and abilities. We believe that our diverse team brings unique perspectives and experiences to the table, enriching our work and enabling us to better serve our clients and communities.

At ECC, we are committed to fostering a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and empowered to succeed. We recognize that diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just words, but principles that must be actively upheld and championed.

We are committed to supporting the communities we serve. Giving back is an essential element of our culture. Our founder, Aram Arakelian, co-founded the IIDA Student Fund to ensure a lasting endowment exists to provide opportunity to local design students to realize their dreams. Additional organizations that ECC supports include USC Architectural Guild, Inclusion Matters by Shane’s Inspiration, Peace Over Violence, Autism Speaks of Southern California, The Laurel Foundation, IIDA Southern California, Vista del Mar Family Services, New Horizons, LA Mission, Fisher House, Junior Achievement of Southern California, as well as many others.
