construction management

Maxwell Batiste Construction has experienced employees who have managed multiple large and complex construction projects both at the local municipal and state levels These projects have ranged from planned mixed-use community properties to commercial and government properties.

Maxwell Batiste Construction always emphasizes quality control and safety.  We use the latest construction management technology (both hardware and software) that helps us to create and maintain a highly productive and safe workplace.  


Regardless of the complexity, scope, and size of any project, we constantly maintain an open line of communication between the owner of the property, architect and building designers, and the general contractor so as to reach our construction goals in an efficient and safe manner. 


Having the latest construction management technology and access to real time data enables us to maintain and monitor work flow responsibilities which then enables us to manage and mitigate potentially expensive risks and their associated delays.

It is my pleasure to recommend the work of Maxwell Batiste and Maxwell Batiste Construction, Inc. for exemplary work in the profession that I hold dear. As an architect, I often see construction of all types and quality but rarely do I see the work of a craftsman who is as proud as I am in the high level of work they are capable of producing. I have worked with Maxwell and his team from concept to turn-key phase and at every stage, they have always displayed attention to detail and forethought that has avoided pitfalls and saved our mutual client time and money. The experience of the team and their ability to advise from early stage while staying with the project through to the completion and putting together the dream as captured in the permit drawings makes all who had a hand in the project look good. Maxwell Batiste exemplifies a top down leadership in dedication and quality that any client should be eager to adopt in their project. I is my belief that any decision to team with Batiste and team will be a wise decision that will stand the test of time.

It is with pleasure that we share the following comments and key points about the quality services Mr. Batiste and his work crew provided to us. Maxwell Batiste Construction, Inc., has been an excellent partner in service and construction. They have been trustworthy General Contractors as they have brought experience, knowledge, integrity, and a proven track record to our construction projects. Their leadership and management skills have been an added benefit in this regard.

During the duration of the project, Maxwell Batiste Construction, Inc., demonstrated dedication and diligence to completing the work in a timely, professional manner, while working within our budget. Their team worked hard to locate vendors that delivered quality work at a price we could afford, which was very much appreciated. Their willingness to help achieve the goals of our project from budget and functionality aspects was a huge asset.

They have made themselves readily available to meet our major, minor, and emergency construction needs. An example was when we had frozen and burst pipes on a holiday last year. They mobilized and started repairs in less than an hour of our notifying them. Their prompt responses to our needs have exceeded our expectations on multiple occasions. 

We place confidence and trust in Mr. Batiste and his staff to deliver a quality project on time and within budget and we would highly recommend them to any prospective clients that require quality services at an affordable cost.
