Durr Heavy Construction is a New Orleans-based construction company specializing in site preparation, demolition, underground utilities and paving. We excel at offering complete site packages to ensure your project is safely completed on time and under budget. We provide the best in “horizontal construction” by having experienced people, by utilizing cutting edge technology and equipment, as well as by providing you a little lagniappe*.
Working as a general contractor or a subcontractor, we perform our best work when we can work closely with the owner in the planning, development and scheduling of a project. We appreciate any opportunity to think creatively in order to institute value engineering and quality control measures. When you work with Durr, you work with a partner that is focused on your success as well as ours. There’s a reason why we have been in business for 60 years and plan to be here for over 60 more.
Durr is proud to be in its 3rd generation of ownership and management. Founded by Edward Durr in 1955, the company has since been owned by Durr’s daughter and is now owned by her children. As a family business, the company still honors the original values Mr. Durr instilled in it 60 years ago: integrity, safety, quality, teamwork, commitment and faith. These values ensure an ideal environment for our clients and our Durr team.
Durr has been woman-owned since Durr’s daughter purchased the business almost 40 years ago. We take great pride in having female ownership and leadership. We also enjoy welcoming more women into the construction industry.
Culture, people and resources are what separates us from others in the industry.
