Palmisano has been named a 2018 Top Contractor by ENR Texas and Louisiana for the second year in a row! The Top Contractors list, published annually, ranks the general contractors, both publicly and privately held, based on construction contracting-specific revenue. Thanks to our team and partners for their hard work and dedication!
Our President and CEO, Wesley Palmisano, offered some words to ENR about the current state of the industry in New Orleans:
“New Orleans remains an exciting place to work in the construction industry,” says Wesley Palmisano. Both the tourism and entertainment industries are providing opportunities for local contractors, he notes. These opportunities are translating into projects in the commercial sector throughout the greater New Orleans area. “We are hopeful that the infrastructure improvements scheduled for streets and utilities stemming from a FEMA [Federal Emergency Management Agency] settlement from Hurricane Katrina keeps us busy in the civil market,” Palmisano adds. The next two years look good for the New Orleans construction business, but Palmisano notes that he remains cautious about potential changes in the economy moving toward 2020 and beyond. “We are excited about the continued trend towards the design-build delivery method for all types and sizes of projects, as this delivery method makes up approximately 90% of Palmisano’s work,” he adds.
