Our construction company recently began a project at Dow Chemical plant. We are renovating a women's and men's restroom. The project involves installing new wall and floor tile, new ceiling tile and light fixtures, new plumbing fixtures, urinals, auto flush valves, and restroom dispensers. We also installed new toilet partitions, painted the restroom walls and installed new restroom doors. We look forward to working with Dow Chemical in the future.
This project involves demolishing an existing building and clearing land to ready it for the new structure. After the demo work, we will then pour a concrete parking lot and install a metal canopy that will provide cover for a hand carwash station.
We are presently renovating a 6,000 sq ft warehouse in Chalmette for Southern Coating and Waterprooofing, a locally owned and operated business. The interior portion of the work includes upgrading the electrical system, adding a second floor for additional office space and cosmetic repairs to additional office space. The exterior portion includes upgrading the existing site with a new concrete parking lot.
We recently began a project out in St. Rose where we are going to convert just over five acres of property to a working limestone parking lot with a modular building and concrete parking lot. The site work in this project is extensive. We will remove the top layer of organic material from the entire site, plus we will also break apart roughly 24,000 sf of existing concrete. Next, we will fill with the area with river sand, proof roll to achieve required compaction, and install geotextile fabric to separate the sub grade surface from the final layer of limestone.
Great effort has been made to ensure that this vast sight has proper drainage to comply with local guidelines.
Southern Construction of Metairie is working with Volunteers of America GNO to renovate a building at 3801 Pitt Street in uptown New Orleans. The building "needs substantial repairs and remodeling, including code and system updates, roof replacement and kitchen and bathroom remodels." (Vision Holiday 2014) This building renovation will enable the Volunteers of America to help more homeless veterans in the New Orleans area.
"The large numbers of homeless veterans remain a major problem in the New Orleans area. Volunteers of America is working even harder to help. Our latest move is renovating an Uptown building to allow us to expand our services to help the estimated 193 homeless veterans in the metro area. Once rehabilitation to this property is completed, Volunteers of America will add 20 Safe Haven Transitional Housing Units to our continuum of care for homeless veterans. This will boost our total number of beds for homeless veterans to 76. Our beds for homeless disabled veterans will increase from four to eight. Volunteers of America works to develop a full continuum of services to help homeless veterans stay off the streets permanently. Our services start with outreach to help the homeless accept help. Once the Veterans Administration refers veterans to our program, they receive intensive case management with wrap-around supportive services, in substance abuse/mental health counseling, education and permanent housing. While the plight of homeless veterans seem daunting, there is encouraging news. Even though estimates are that half of local homeless veterans are chronically homeless, those we serve have a high rate of success in rebuilding their lives. More than 78% of veterans who live in our transitional housing achieve the target outcome of residential stability, increased skill/income level and greater self determination. Most importantly, 70% still are in permanent housing after 12 months." from Visions Holiday 2014 Volunteers of America
Bart's Office Furniture and Moving, Inc. decided to expand operations by moving into a new location in New Orleans. They hired us to complete a total renovation of their new location on Industry Street. This project involved converting 4,000 sq ft of open space to offices and meeting rooms and renovating a kitchen/break room and restrooms.
In July, we were contacted by a company with an office in St. Rose, Louisiana that needed three new doors installed. They were having trouble finding a contractor that would come out and look at their small project. We were immediately responsive to their bid request and promptly were awarded the door installation job. In late December, this company contacted us again for a new, larger project. They were very happy with our work on their past project and wanted us to bid on a project that would involve phased cosmetic upgrades to their 4,000 square foot office space. Again, we were responsive to this bid request and were awarded the project. We started this project last weekend!
We are scheduled to begin new construction on a metal canopy for a long-term parking lot at the Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport. The canopy will provide shelter from the elements for customers who are entering and exiting the credit card lot. This improvement will ease the airport parking experience.
