Contractors begin construction of St. Bernard Parish public works facility

Text size: A A

St. Bernard Parish officials broke ground recently on a new $1.6 million building that will be part of the St. Bernard Parish Public Works Yard.

The new building will provide parish workers with conference rooms, office space and a maintenance shop on the lower level, as they continue rebuilding and repairing the parish’s infrastructure.

Construction of the project is being handled by Kenner-based JaRoy Construction Inc. The new facility was designed by Perez Architects and is being funded partially by the Federal Emergency Management Administration.

“This new two-story facility with its additional space and much-needed amenities will help parish workers get streets repaired and other maintenance issues handled in a more timely and efficient manner,” says Jan Buras, owner and president of JaRoy Construction.

Plans are underway to determine future usage of the existing public works building, which has outgrown its usefulness. The new St. Bernard Parish Public Works Facility is expected to be completed by late-summer 2010.
