In 2009, our owner and CEO, Brooks Livers, began a partnership of transition with former owner Bill Caruthers of an Arkansas commercial construction company— Caruthers Cooper Inc. This relationship, friendship, and ultimately mentorship by Bill Caruthers, along with Brooks’s vision, set the foundation of the company that LiveCo Construction is today. Bill Caruthers and Brooks’s father, Rob Livers, and grandfather, Ira Livers had a previous 30-year professional working relationship. At the beginning of 2010, Brooks purchased Caruthers Cooper Inc. and began to dig deep into the commercial construction world.
By 2018 Brooks, along with the Team he was building, grew the business significantly, including a team of Superintendents and Project Managers. It was decided to officially change the name of the company to LiveCo. If you talk to Brooks about LiveCo, the first thing he will tell you is that it is not just a company, but a TEAM and the key characteristic for each team member is to take ownership. We pride ourselves on being a trustworthy and easy-going group of people all with very different skill sets. Our mission is to strive to be the best option that our customers have for trustworthy problem-solving and dependable project-building in the commercial construction industry.
While skilled commercial construction is LiveCo’s main emphasis, it also offers two other branches of service to its customers— LiveCo Real Estate and LiveCo Design Services. LiveCo Real Estate was established in 2016 by Associate Broker, Brooks Livers, and Melanie Wilkie, Principal Broker. LiveCo Design Services was established in 2019 when experienced architect Josh Newton, AIA joined the team as Lead Architect and Construction Project Manager. By combining the skill sets from our different team members and our different services, we desire to be your reliable “one-stop-shop” for all of your construction needs.
