In the Bywater, Mayer Building Company recently delivered a much needed full renovation to 739 Mandeville Street at the corner of Dauphine Street. We replaced the roof and salvaged the terra cotta ridge caps. The exterior siding of this sort-of Dutch Coloniel, sort of Mid-Century residence was in serviceable shape, and needed only minor rafter-tail and weatherboard work. The inside was a completely different story. Along with the owner, we came up with an innovative layout that would add some user-friendlier spaces to this odd split-level. With a few partition changes, and a new location for the interior stairs to the basement, a new access and porch/landing that leads from the driveway to the kitchen, the home flows better than ever before. The work included new plumbing, wiring and adding central air and new finishes. We reclaimed the existing wood floor, base and doors, and installed a new kitchen, two new bathrooms, a couple of closets and a full laundry area. We even restored a pleasant screen porch too.
Mayer Building Company continues to be a team player. For this project, the developer performed all the sheetrock and paint works in-house, so we worked in tandem with his forces. This facet of the project demonstrates our success in co-operation with alternate crews.
The team-effort overhaul of this building not only put a nice address back in commerce, added value to the burgeoning Bywater nieghborhood, but also brought a second-rate structure into historic compliance and spiffy good looks.
Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in getting my premium coffee shop open early.
I brag about you and your people all of the time.. I get constant compliments on the building! Recently our commercial construction project came to a successful completion, and we are open for business. I appreciate the efforts of Mayer Building Company in building out our new offices on time and within budget.
Thanks again for a job well done! We have completed over 30 Cyclebars across the country in the past year. The New Orleans (Magazine Street) site was not only one of the best but working with Mayer exceeded all expectations. I look forward to future work with the Mayer Team.
Y’all did such a nice job. Thank you so much for your careful work. You’ve helped transform our space!
I just want to thank you and your staff for going above and beyond during this build out process. With us being in a different city, y’all have been awesome to work with. Y’all have accommodated every change within our construction window and have helped us greatly on things that couldn’t have gotten done without you and your staff’s help. Thanks so much. It is greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much for doing such a great job. The rooms look great and the inconvenience to us was minimal at worst. Your personnel was friendly and easy to work with. Fred was really great. We are very pleased with the result. Thank you and I hope to work with you again on another project.
I was concerned about doing a renovation at a place that was many states away from where I lived. I needed someone that I could count on and could handle every aspect of the renovation. I also required someone who was familiar with the permit requirements for an historical building in New Orleans….I would highly recommend Ryan Mayer to any potential client. I was extrememly pleased with the work he performed and would use him again for any additional contracting needs that I may have.
