During the spring of 2017, Mayer Building Company completed the new French Truck Coffee on Chartres Street early. The project was designed by Colectivo. This full build out of a white box space included all new M/E/P systems and fire alarm and sprinkler modifications. The sharp, contemporary finishes include concrete tile, bold ceramics, custom steel trim and shelving and the largest butcher block surface we’ve seen in 20 plus years. The cafe sports high-end coffee making and water filtration systems for making specialty coffee (by owner), an open sales and cafe floor, new stainless equipment for back-of-house and restrooms. The architect’s plan included “bringing the sidewalk into the space,” a terrific detail by which we inlaid a New Hampshire bluestone into a portion of the French Truck space interlaced with the adjoining municipal sidewalk.(Progress photos by MBC staff, finish photos by Todd Price, Nola.com).Read More
While the famous Court of Two Sisters restaurant on Royal was closed for a week this summer, Mayer Building Company performed some quick renovations to auxiliary areas of the giant restaurant. We repainted three guest restrooms and replaced bathroom partitions, light fixtures, ceiling tiles, mechanical equipment, stone and plumbing fixtures. In the grand stair way that leads to the kitchen and Back-of-House we removed and replaced the carpet, patched up the sub-floor, prepped and painted the walls and trim, and swapped out the light sconces.Read More
At the corner of Oak & Dublin, Mayer Building Company completed Simone’s Market in time for the 2016 Christmas Season.

In November 2016, Mayer Building Company completed the re-invention of La23 BBQ. We rebuilt and installed a commercial kitchen in LA23’s existing facilty; we raised the ceiling and added decks and rough & ready rails about the exterior; we re-clad the whole building in galvanized sheet metal. We installed a new foundation for this building and a new metal canopy replete with rustic lights and fans. Our gleaming work was delivered with minor punchlist, but it’s the owners’ work that shines in this project. The amazing reviews online don’t do justice to the incredible barbecue that the gentlemen owners serve up on a daily basis. On day one, LA23 continued its pre-renovation practice of selling out before closing with out a word of published marketing.

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.
Thanks for everything, Ryan! We look forward to working with you again in the future.
We found the team at Mayer Building Company to be communicative,
eﬃcient, and responsive throughout our project. Capsule was able to
eﬀectively remotely manage this project extremely eﬀectively, resulting in an
on time delivery with only very minimum punch list. Please accept this letter
as recognition of your company’s evident skills in construction
management, quality control and safety.
