Credit Human - Oak

During the Spring of 2023, Mayer Building Company completed its second Credit Human Financial Health Center in New Orleans. This one was built out of an older dilapidated outbuilding on Oak Street. We not only transformed the interior from essential a large shed into a first class financial center, we also replaced the roof, the front façade, the concrete and landscaped approach and the insufficient utility services. The project was a challenge in that supply chain issues really delayed the electrical systems, but given our rapport with the owner (Thanks Sharon of CH!) and our compatibility with the architect (Thanks Maggie and Lucy of OJT!). The new Credit Human in the Riverbend is ready to open for business. Pictures by Anne Finney.

Priority Health Care

In February of 2023, Mayer Building Company delivered this total renovation of an 8000 square foot commercial space into Priority Health Care, a new clinic in Gretna on the West Bank. Thanks to Garrity & Accardo Architects, the subcontractors who delivered this project on time, the owner and MBC Superintendent Andy Haggerty on the successful rehabilitation old building into a great new space

Strayer, New Orleans Campus

Mayer Building Company completed a dynamic build-out of 3400 square feet for Strayer University, New Orleans campus in late summer 2020. The new space boats state of the art classrooms, conference rooms, common areas. Strayer & Mayer pivoted during the coronavirus pandemic to build safely and add touchless features throughout.  The owner had this to say about our efforts:

Thank you to the entire Mayer Team for a job well done to meet our tight schedule
requirements! All the great support given the obstacles from the pandemic and added
increased virtual project angles along the way was greatly appreciated. Strayer University is very
happy with our new exciting campus and look forward to the future.

The extraordinary efforts Mayer Building Company took to help get us to the finish line while
making several changes to our plans due to the new “world pandemic view” was truly
commendable. This dedication speaks volumes to the strong project management and quality
control your firm brought to the project. From start to finish, your team continued to keep
safety at the forefront as we all navigated many new challenges due to the crisis.

French Truck Coffee(s)

In the Fall and Winter of 2018/2019, Mayer Building Company completed two brand new French Truck Coffee cafes. Located at 2917 Magazine Street uptwn and 650 Poydras Street downtown, these two projects were collaborative, speedy and interesting. While Magazine Street was more of a re-branding and finishes effort, Poydras included structural steel, an enormous custom storefront and tricky mechanical systems. Every effort was employed to produce these A-plus cafes as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. Thanks to French Truck Coffee and Colectivo.

A historical home converted into a mixed-used space by Mayer Building Company in New Orleans, LA

4901 Magazine Street

In July, Mayer Building Company, LLC completed the work at 4901-03 Magazine Street. The major renovation on the corner of Magazine and Upperline consisted of converting an unused, decrepit Victorian 4plex into a stunning mixed-used rehabilitation. Upstairs there are two apartments for rent with balconies and galleries that face the parade route. Downstairs is a new office space customized to the real estate company moving in. We salvaged the floors, doors, baseboards, brickworks, and hardware (when possible). The major challenge of this project included prosecuting this salvage and re-use effort at the same time as abiding by Historic Tax Credit requirements (federal and state) the local Historic District Landmarks Commission requirements, the City of New Orleans Safety & Permits requirements, the Louisiana State Fire Marshal requirements and all the International Building Codes governing the same. Oh yeah, and we had to fit in air-conditioning, ADA and life safety requirements and new plumbing and electrical. Whew.

MHSD Central City

In July 2018, Mayer Building Company, LLC completed a significant overhaul of the Metropolitan Human Services Division flagship clinic at 2221 Philip Street in Central City. The new finishes throughout included new flooring, paint, and ceilings. We added private billing and consultation rooms with sound attenuation considerations, insulation, and glass doors and transoms. HVAC and electrical followed of course. We added new security, pharmacy and work stations of custom millwork matching the MHSD brand. The scope of work was done AT NIGHT while the clinic OPERATED throughout the renovations during the day. Work was performed by Mayer Building Company in a clean, safe, fast manner. NO change orders except for one minor unforeseen demolition item. Thanks to the great roster of subcontractors here, Terrell-Fabacher Architects, Feldmeier Galyean (Owner’s Rep) and especially MHSD Management Team.

Crescent Care Behavioral

In the summer of 2018, MBC completed a new behavioral clinic on Tulane Avenue for Crescent Care. The project, designed by SCNZ, included a new lobby, entrance, bathrooms, triage room, therapy rooms, and offices on this third-floor space. We installed new acoustic treatments, window treatments, finishes, and specialty millwork to create the comfortable (and branded) space for this new clinic. The project had only a few challenges and the ownership team and the design was great to work with and for.

G Star Raw is a luxury denim brand with a focus on fine craftsmanship and urban appeal, opens this September and will concentrate on men’s apparel, adding new fashion-forward options for male shoppers.

Prior to commencing the work, Mayer Building Company, LLC participated in crafting a quick-turn-around budget. Actual construction was performed in accordance with architectural oversight in order to meet the client’s goals. The project was delivered with the very minimal punch list.
