General Contractor

As a General Contractor, Southern partners with the owner and his designer through a traditional design-bid-build process under either a negotiated or lump sum contract.

Design Builder

As a Design-Builder, Southern is a single source of responsibility to the owner, thereby assuming all risk to deliver the project. This approach allows Southern and the owner to influence design and cost at an early stage while facilitating "fast track" construction.

Construction Manager

As a Construction Manager, Southern normally provides services on an "at-risk" basis where we are responsible for guaranteeing performance. However, if the owner prefers we may also serve as his agent with the owner holding all trade contracts.


The biggest differentiator for Southerns’ future is combining its civil and vertical divisions’ knowledge and technological resources — specifically, the innovations that can enhance efficiency.

Field and office operations are based out of a 6-acre site in New Iberia, Louisiana that houses offices and fabrication space, with an adjacent yard for all company equipment, machines and vehicles.




With an experienced and diverse estimating and project management staff, as well as our specialized field operations staff, we can bring significant value to the construction process.


There are few general contractors that can successfully self-perform services from site preparation to building erection. Southern is one of them and the quality of work is unsurpassed. 


The quality and commitment of our projects go hand-in-hand. The end result for our clients is value – excellent work at the right price. 

Our commitment to your project shows in our numbers. 

Here are a few highlights of our business.
