Worth of Historic Projects


I began working with Ryan Gootee General Contractors many years ago when I was asked to go to New Orleans to take over a project from a team member that had left the company. I had never worked in New Orleans before, and we inherited a project that needed some help. The Gootee team partnered with me to straighten out the project, introduce me to the New Orleans construction market and we delivered an amazing project to a very happy operations team. That partnership that was developed over 10 years ago is still going strong.


This company builds relationships as well as spaces. They have strong subcontractor relationships and make sure that the owner gets the best product for the price. As an owner that manages projects remotely it is critical that we work with a strong, trustworthy Contractor, Ryan Gootee General Contractors team is that and more.


It has been my honor and pleasure to work with Ryan Gootee General Contractors; I recommend them highly to anybody considering them as your construction Partner.

Tasked with repairing damage to an office structure on a barge is daunting enough, but working through the safety concerns posed by working on and over water added greatly to the challenge. Ryan Gootee’s team was keen to keep safety paramount throughout the project, which created a professional work atmosphere for all involved. Crescent Towing is a repeat customer and we have had only positive experiences with RGGC. Ryan and his team are a pleasure to work with — they communicate well and work hard to find solutions to accommodate our needs.

Keith Kettenring | Crescent Towing

We wanted to take time to thank you for the fantastic job your team did constructing Las Cruces Tex Mex. We get compliments daily on the construction of the facility from our customers. We highly recommend RGGC, and we would most certainly use them again in the future.

Marc Bonifacic | Managing Member

As we come to the end of another construction project, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your hard work and professionalism.  The quality and commitment your team brings to bear leads us back to RGGC any time we have a major construction project. Please know that we are deeply grateful for the work you do, and the care you bring to our projects.

The historic renovation of 353 Carondelet Street to the Fidelity Bank Headquarters was a complicated project. Ryan Gootee General Contractors handled this redevelopment with incredible focus and attention to detail that I have never experienced on a project. This was a very important project for our company and one that required a very high degree of skill, but also professionalism and care. Renovating a vacant, historically significant building into a Bank Headquarters during a pandemic, in what we felt was record time, was remarkable.

Chris Ferris | CEO, Fidelity Bank & NOLA Lending

St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church is absolutely thrilled with the results of our major renovation…your employees and subcontractors were diligent in making sure that the results lived up to our expectations.

Wayne Wilcox | CAO, St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church

The restoration and conversion of the Myrtle Banks school has exceeded our wildest dreams of what we thought we’d have at the end of this project. It’s a better, more beautiful project in every way and that’s because of the project team.

Mike Grote | Director of Building Programs, Alembic Community Development

When my back was against the wall, they were ready to go the extra mile to protect our interest… Ryan Gootee saved us after Katrina.

Joey Scaffidi | President, Christian Brothers School
