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 Towingis 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.

The historic renovation of 353 Carondelet Street to the Fidelity Bank Headquarterswas 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.
