Livers Construction Inc. (LCI) is a small African-American owned business founded in 1990 at a time when the Office of Housing & Urban Affairs (OHUA) of the City of New Orleans was in grave need of residential rehabilitation contractors. The city had a large supply of blighted homes, yet not enough qualified contractors.
After early years of success in the single family residential market, LCI expanded its business plan to include multifamily properties, successfully completing a three-story 18-unit dormitory project for one of the most prestigious universities in New Orleans. Through diligent work and extensive planning, a four month project was completed in only two months.
Recognizing further growth potential, LCI entered the commercial construction sector, beating out the competition for an 18,000 square foot interior buildout project for a renowned New Orleans institution. The project was completed on time and within budget.
Moreover, LCI pushed the envelope further, successfully restoring a late 1800’s historic French Creole Cottage with a detached Slave Quarter in the rear. The project earned LCI a commendation by the New Orleans Historic District Landmarks Commission.
Over the years, LCI has completed projects for the Louis Armstrong Airport (New Orleans), W.H. Smith Inc. (an international airport and hotel concessionaire), Xavier University of Louisiana, Total Community Action Inc., a Head Start Agency, the Archdiocese of New Orleans, the New Orleans General Service Administration, State Farm Insurance Co., Tulane University, University of New Orleans, Union Carbide, Dillard University of New Orleans, Entergy Services Inc., and many more.
We combine hands-on experience, educational background, and the expertise to get the job done. We are in the business of cultivating relationships. LCI is a dynamic growing organization and we look forward to serving you for many years to come.
