Associated Builders and Contractors Bayou Chapter held its annual awards gala on November 10, 2016, at which DonahueFavret received two awards for Excellence in Construction for:
Desire Street Ministries – Danny Weurffel’s non-profit, Desire Street Ministries, lost their headquarters in Hurricane Katrina. Instead of just rebuilding an office, they envisioned a campus including a health center, a childcare and a community center. DonahueFavret Contractors brought it to life.
Fairfield Inn & Suites – DonahueFavret Contractors renovated and restored the 7-story Interstate Electric Company building, built in 1904 in New Orleans. DonahueFavret restored the building’s historic features and repaired structural damage while converting it into the Fairfield Inn & Suites.
Both projects will now compete for national awards. DonahueFavret also received a Gold STEP Award, a merit-based safety recognition.
