“Working with Pat Williams Construction throughout the preconstruction phase brought value well beyond that of typical preconstruction services. The Pat Williams Construction team poured tremendous efforts into the constructability reviews to uncover items that could have potentially resulted in costly change orders later during the construction phase of the project. The Pat Williams Construction team easily ranks among the best that I have ever worked with in terms of attention to detail and just the overall team player mentality they have demonstrated every step of the way.”

“Pat Williams Construction worked to build a south campus as an unpresented expansion to our present school. We added a high school to our existing PK2 through eighth grade. Pat Williams Construction provided a seamless team to complete construction on time and within budget during the wettest winter we have had in many years and during Covid-19 crises with its own limitations. The Project Manager was on top the project daily and helped each trade whether it be the painters, electricians or others to work in a safe and clean environment.
I truly think this the DREAM TEAM! I cannot think of one negative thing to say about our experience.”

“I would highly recommend Pat Williams Construction for General Contracting projects. They have been involved in many vital school projects for the Calcasieu Parish School Board. Their skills and communication in the construction process are exceptional and their approach to managing projects is effective and highly professional. We at the Calcasieu Parish School Board know that Pat Williams Construction is dedicated to enhancing our community through hard work, trust, dedication and integrity. It has been a pleasure doing business with their company and I would not hesitate to award projects to them in the future.”

“I have worked with Pat Williams Construction on numerous projects over the years, from small projects to multi-million dollar projects, and my experience has always been outstanding. To me there are three key criteria that determine an excellent contractor. Those are, a collaborative spirit, the people, and the quality of construction. In all three areas, Pat Williams Construction stands out as excellent.”

“From the beginning I will be clear, we would always want Pat Williams Construction to be an invited bidder for any future construction. I recommend them and their work for any construction needs and especially for a school.
Pat Williams Construction was the contractor for the building of the Southwest Louisiana Charter Academy in Lake Charles, LA. SWLCA is a pre-k to 8th grade facility built in 2014 to accommodate the academic and recreational needs of needs of 860 students.
We broke ground for the SWLCA facility in December 2013. Pat Williams Construction knew of our time constraints and had our facility ready for the opening of school in August 2014. And the facility was built below budget, for the benefit of SWLCA and Pat Williams Construction. We encountered no problems in Owner-Contractor relations.
Six years following construction, we have had no issues with the work performed. Our facility has served us well and has shown constructional integrity. Without hesitation, we recommend Pat Williams Construction for serious consideration as a qualified bidder and a qualified contractor.”

“Pat Williams Construction was the General Contractor for our 26,700 square foot expansion for Assured Mini Storage at 4852 Ihles Road in Lake Charles, La. Jason Williams, Brandon Jardneaux, and Kipp Walling were involved in the beginning stages of our project- advising, establishing budgets, and selection of local contractors. We decided on a cost-plus contract which was attractive to us and worked very well. Pat Williams Construction was efficient, professional, and knowledgeable. Schedules and updated schedules were a part of the process as well as backup data for costs. When issues came up, we always felt that Pat Williams Construction was looking out for us as owners. We were very pleased with the quality of our project as well as projected costs being within our budget. Thanks to Pat Williams Construction for a job well done.”
“I wanted to inform you of our positive experience with your site superintendent, John Bookout, during the construction of our new facility. As you are aware, the construction of a project such as ours can come with complications and headaches and this one had its share of issues. Mr. Bookout was always “Johnny on the spot” with a solution or recommendation. I observed him go the extra mile and “crack the whip” with sub-contractors to meet deadlines or get ahead of the weather. The ground conditions of this project can get ugly with wet weather but John somehow managed to stay one step ahead of the rains. John is able to balance his loyalty to Pat Williams Construction with that of the concerns of the customer. I would be remiss not to mention observing the same positive
experience with Mr. Doug Desoto. Doug was accessible any time we needed him and demonstrated the ability to balance his loyalty to the company and concerns of the customer. Both of these men are truly a credit to their profession and your company. It is my hope that if we have any construction in the future, we would be fortunate enough to have your company here again.”
“Last year we were under time pressure to deliver rehab on lease space for Tulane Hospital on 10,000 sf space at our office building at Washington Square. The time restraints did not provide time to put a hard number together and complete renovations on time. We made the unusual business decision to give your company the green light with no budget and 60-day time frame to build-out a medical clinic and dental facility for HIV patients represented by this most important medical facility in our community. Mr. Russ Jeansonne with your Alexandria office and on-site superintendent Steve Cook performed a task short of a construction miracle. I am most grateful for your company’s skills and honesty and would welcome Russ and Steve to list me as a reference for property owners in the “center of my universe.” Thanks.”

“I would like to commend Pat Williams Construction for a job well done. Even though rain delayed the completion of some of our projects on schedule, working with this team was a great experience. Each week, throughout the summer and school year, I met with Mac and the others from the Calcasieu Parish School System and truly felt a part of a hard-working, committed-to-excellence team. Safety is the first concern for those responsible for children. Mac, Jason, and all the others involved in this project were frequently required to drop everything and tackle an issue that required immediate attention. I just want to make sure that it’s recognized that this group always responded with the utmost compassion and professionalism to every task and we are so fortunate that Pat Williams Construction Company was assigned to E. K. Key Elementary.”
