Who We Are

  Hackett Cummins Construction excels at building and renovating fine homes to create beautiful, comfortable and useable spaces.  We often are asked to do the same for offices or shops.  We do this with respect for the fabric of the buildings and for the character of their neighborhoods.

 

Experience

 

  We are a family-owned business, established in 1986, with satisfied clients throughout the New Orleans area and on the Mississippi Gulf Coast.  Our reputation is based on our experience in working in historic neighborhoods.  We respect our clients, our creative partners—architects and designers—and our work spaces.

 

Respect

 

  We know how important it is to do things right the first time, to stay on schedule and in budget, and to keep our clients’ homes and businesses as clean and protected as possible while we work.  Attention to detail is our mantra—both the details of the design, as well as, the details of managing the workplace.

 

Passion

 

  It is our passion to bring our clients’ plans to life and to turn their dreams into reality.  It is really quite simple: know your stuff and keep your eyes on the ball.  Choose employees and partners—skilled subcontractors—who are outstanding in their areas of expertise.  See that they receive the right supplies, support and guidance to keep the project moving without a hitch.


Value

 

  The value of our team's experience is incalculable.  Our determination to please our clients, to make things right, is part of our DNA.  Contact us today to start a journey that gets you to a better place.

We look forward to
working with you.

Going green?

  So are we.  Every effort made in the construction process spends some of the world’s resources, so it’s easy to see why ...

The greenest building
is the one already built
.

  When considering whether to build new or renovate, your best move may be to stay right where you are and make modifications and additions that improve energy efficiency, simplify maintenance, or simply make your life better while you make the world a better place.
