Innovation Is Our Tradition

As a construction company, we believe quality buildings should stand the test of time, and we’re proud that our client relationships do too. That’s part of an important tradition in our company, one with a history dating back for generations.

Woodward Design+Build was originally formed by Carl E. Woodward, an innovative New Orleans architect and early champion of the design+build process. He believed in forging partnerships between the client, the architect and the contractor because he understood the results would be successful buildings of exceptional quality with value built in at every stage. These results also led to satisfied clients who returned again and again, entrusting his company with their next projects.

The ideals of our pioneering founder live on with our Integrated Design+Build approach while the values he established for our company remain the cornerstones of Woodward Design+Build today.

Woodward Design+Build now is one of the largest construction firms in the Gulf Coast region. We are a privately-held company with our headquarters in New Orleans and additional offices and facilities on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain, in Thibodeaux, Louisiana, and in Gulfport, Mississippi. We work with clients across Gulf Coast with completed projects from Houston, Texas through Baton Rouge and New Orleans into Mississippi and Alabama and on to the Florida Gulf Coast.

Woodward Design+Build is a construction company with a diverse range of services and capabilities including custom millwork, steel erection and fabrication, skilled masonry, in-house engineering services, advanced virtual design and construction capabilities, as well as in-house architects to assist you in getting your project completed. In addition to our Integrated Design+Build approach for complete projects, we provide resources and expertise for projects on an as-needed basis, from design to in-house fabrication to general construction.
