In April 2012, Mayer Building Company commenced a major overhaul of the 4-story 1840s masonry townhouse (read mansion). Ten months later, one of the finest residences in the French Quarter emerged. This home, which had once been converted into four condos or apartments, is now re-establised as a single family home in granduer and panache. Above the gas lanterns, two galleries, dressed in iron lace, catch river breezes and views well into the Marigny/ Bywater. The home, designed with eloborate and ornate finishes, Victorian in some places, Louis XIV in others is a study in custom craftsmanship and artisan applications. 510 Esplanade also contains state-of-the-art equipment blended into its style for super-ergonomics in the kitchen, baths, palors and recreation areas.Read More
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 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. The 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.Read More
In February 2013, Mayer Building Company conveyed interior improvements to the two (2) Pier 8 Condominium elevators at the West End complex.

In early fall 2012, Mayer Building Company provided a quick repair package to the Anytime Fitness on Canal Street. The gym, which had been affected by the 2012 storm, required a nimble and attentive crew to furnish and install sheetrock, vinyl base, ceiling tiles and paint in a few minorly damaged areas. The finish package we delivered turned out to be a satisfactory match, but what was just as important for this job was our operating procedures. The job at Anytime, which is open to the membership public 24-7, needed much temporary protection, extreme cleanliness, and customer-service flexibility. Mayer Building Company afforded all of these things.Read More

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.
We are always excited to partner up with MBC to work on our new location developments or redesigns,
as we can always count on quality, timeliness, and most importantly, the right level of communication
in the client relationship.
As we grow City Greens, we look forward to working with the Mayer Building Company in the very near future.
It is with pleasure, and of my own initiative, I am writing this letter of gratitude
for the work you and your company performed at 4905-11 Magazine Street.
As the architect of that renovation, I worked closely with you, your superintendent
Fred Goodrow, and your staff during the months of construction. Your knowledge, experience, and good judgement, and that of your
employees, were critical in addressing these issues and contributed significantly
to the successful completion of the work.
Both the building owner and I are very proud of the results and are grateful to
you and your staff for a job very well done. I sincerely look forward to the next
time it is my good fortune to work with you.
