We are committed to the highest

level of quality,


and service.

Gootee Construction was founded in 1991 by Kathleen and Elaine Gootee with Kenneth and Patrick Gootee serving as past presidents. Today, Gootee Construction is owned and operated by Benjamin Gootee. Ben is the 4th generation of the family business with his great-grandfather starting Grimaldi Plumbing Company in the French Quarter in 1909. From the beginning, we’ve been committed to achieving the highest possible standard of quality and integrity within our industry. Our staff is actively involved with many associations and boards, where we serve as officers, advisers and teachers.

We continue to implement state-of-the-art information systems making it possible to provide accurate estimates, effective project management, and efficient cost control. We’ve become known for our proactive, innovative approach to the many challenges that inevitably arise during major construction projects, and we have substantial experience in bringing difficult, sensitive projects to completion. We believe our competitive advantage arises from the trust and respect we share with employees and clients alike. By putting an emphasis on teamwork, we consistently deliver quality work on time and within budget.
