New Orleans Chamber Member Since 2018
“Our mission is to perform the highest possible degree of quality work at the best possible price.”
Doug Matthews, Owner of Matthews Construction, has been in or around the construction business for all of his adult life, and as someone who is drawn to the diversity of people and buildings, he couldn’t be in a better city for it. Doug and his team have over 150 years of combined experience in construction, ranging from residential and commercial custom builds to renovations, additions and remodeling. Matthews Construction also offers fabricating from its in-house, full-service mill shop and high-end stair builders.
“We are extremely fortunate to work with and be inspired by the city’s great architects, homeowners, and business owners,” says Doug, who joined the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce to be involved in the business community in a more formal setting. He describes his Chamber membership as educational, fun, and a great way to get to know and support local organizations.
Often sought for its historic building expertise, Matthews Construction recently won an Award for Excellence from the Louisiana Landmark Society for its historic renovation of the Il Mercato building at Magazine and Race Streets, and the company is currently restoring two historically significant buildings on Children’s Hospital’s campus.
“Our mission is to perform the highest possible degree of quality work at the best possible price,” says Doug.
Community-minded, the Matthews Construction team has been involved in helping Greater New Orleans navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We are the lucky ones, having been deemed essential,” says Doug. As a way of giving back, Doug encourages volunteerism among the team by paying for their time volunteering with meal delivery programs and donating blood.
