Words can’t fully capture what a fantastic job you and your team did completing our project, BonVi at 882 Montegut in New Orleans. You and your team supported us through multiple unexpected natural disasters and ensured we were delivered a finished product that matched our intentions as a development team. From the high Mississippi River delaying our foundation, through Covid, and finally Hurricane Ida, your team was nimble, reliable and innovative to get this job complete.

Jackie Dadakis | CEO, Green Coast Enterprises

The historic renovation of 353 Carondelet was a complicated project, located on a zero lot line site in busy downtown New Orleans.  The RGGC team handled the job with integrity, professionalism, and accountability at all levels of the organization.  Most importantly, they ran a well-supervised and safe job site during a period of time that included a global pandemic and five named storms, and did it all with great composure.

We just finished four projects in New Orleans and one in Baton Rouge and we are especially thankful for the job that Ryan Gootee General Contractors did on them. Their team’s ability to quickly identify challenges and adapt to overcome them enabled each project to remain on schedule. Everything they said they were going to do, they did. From start to finish, their attention to detail and performance never faltered. We are happy to call on them to build for us on future projects.

Karen Kellner | Project Manager for Humana Workplace Solutions

This is our first job with RGGC and it has been positive from pre-development services and contract negotiation all the way through to actual construction and now close out. They set realistic deadlines and meet them, often exceeding them. I have experienced a companywide commitment to honesty and diligence in everything that they do.

Vanessa Levine | Development Director, Renaissance Neighborhood Development Corporation

I want to report on behalf of Isidore Newman School our complete appreciation of the great job done by this superior company, team of managers, and subcontractors.  We recommend Ryan Gootee General Contractors with no reservations.

Fred Hill | Facilities Director, Isidore Newman School

What has impressed me over and over again is that the approach they bring to the table is very cooperative. It’s a problem solving approach.

John Devlin | President, Brother Martin High School

The general public is always extremely concerned about any new buildings built in parks. One tribute to the design of the Christian Brothers School expansion is that it fits into the fabric of the park to such an extent we received zero complaints during and after its construction.

Bob Becker | CEO, New Orleans City Park

From start to finish your guys made the job not only easy but enjoyable. Working with RGGC has changed my opinion about how much of a pain construction can be.

Sally Cox | Chief of Staff, Team Gleason Foundation

From planning to completion, Ryan Gootee General Contractors built the BonVi Bywater within their projected timeline and with reasonable amendments. For two years we worked with the RGGC team and could not be more grateful to them for their professionalism, responsiveness, and reliability. Hurricane Ida posed many challenges during our build, and RGGC exceeded expectations to hit new deadlines and ensure our stakeholders their commitment to success. We put our trust in them, and they delivered. I would recommend Ryan Gootee General Contractors to anyone and hope to build with them again
