Louisiana National Guard - Jackson Barracks Buildings 2-6

New Orleans, LA

Satterfield & Pontikes Construction, Inc.

The State of Louisiana Division of Administration, Facility Planning and Control selected Satterfield & Pontikes Construction to perform repair and upgrades of historical garrison structures at Jackson Barracks in New Orleans, Louisiana. S&P served as the general contractor for the 17,785 SF project that brought fi ve of the two-story structures back to life.

The wood-framed and masonry buildings serve as housing for enlisted soldiers. Every building on the military post received extensive flood damage caused by a levee breach as a result of Hurricane Katrina.

S&P fully restored all of the architectural fi nishes and features, which included wood fl ooring and trim, plaster, and existing brick. The original exterior look of brick with white columns also
was restored.

Upgrades to the housing facilities included high-end wood cabinets, modern kitchen appliances, recessed lighting, granite countertops, and antique granite/slate-finished fireplaces.

Jackson Barracks, built in 1835, serves as headquarters of the Louisiana National Guard. The number of buildings that have survived since 1835 together comprise the largest single collection of antebellum structures at any location in the U.S.
