This is more than a job. This is a family.

Who We Are

We are committed to building better communities. In 2003, we built this company on a foundation of quality and integrity, dedicating ourselves to providing clients with the best service the construction industry has to offer. Our founder, Chris Stuart, started this company with more than 30 years of contracting experience under his belt, and he used that experience to create a construction firm unlike any other in Baton Rouge. Today, we are a company with exceptional skills and strong values that have molded Stuart & Company into one of the best general contractors in South Louisiana.

01 Safety
Quality buildings don’t spring up overnight — in our business, planning is everything. We’ll carefully examine the details of your project before ever picking up our tools, making sure that we understand exactly what you want and how we can build it for you before construction begins.

Stuart & Company holds a current E-MOD safety rating of 0.82.
02 Integrity
It’s more than a company value, it’s a standard of excellence. We never cut corners, and we always do things right the first time, leaving zero margin for error to make sure you get exactly what you expect. Our integrity makes us who we are — the best of the best — and we strive for nothing less.
03 Quality
Our clients and partners understand that when we start a project, they can count on quality. It’s our bottom line, what we strive for day in and day out. We do everything we can to exceed your expectations and make the finished product even better than you imagined.
04 Teamwork
We aren’t just general contractors; we’re a construction collective — an experienced and dedicated group working together toward one goal: total client satisfaction. Every successful project starts and ends with a team that understands the importance of working as a unit. Our team knows what it takes to get the job done, and they get results.

Total Client Satisfaction

Every project we take on starts and ends with one goal in mind: total client satisfaction. Our process ensures it, our team embraces it, our vendors respect it, and our clients expect it. We hold ourselves to a higher standard, and we work to get the job done right, on time, and on budget. This is our driving principle, our primary directive, our most important value. We don’t stop working until you’re completely satisfied with the results.

In this business, a lasting client relationship is one of the most valuable tools in our arsenal. We do everything we can to make sure that our clients are happy with the work that we’ve done, but our work doesn’t stop there. We go to great lengths to stay connected to all of our clients and partners once a project is complete. When you partner with us for your construction needs, it’s a partnership that lasts.
