Construction of Lock Master Structure

QRI was awarded a contract to construct a new, rigid-frame office building by the New Orleans District. This two (2) story, 2,176 square foot structure (with porches on both stories) was built on a soil supported concrete slab on top of the levee located adjacent to the Port Allen Lock in Port Allen, LA. The purpose of the building was to create a permanent commercial structure for the Port Allen Lock Master and his staff. It also doubles as a Visitors Center with an exhibit room showcasing the Lock and how it works, as well as being a hurricane shelter.

QRI self-performed a significant portion of the work, including: steel framing, exterior sheathing, 2nd floor and sidewalk concrete pours and finishes, vinyl carpentry, fiberglass column covers, both interior and exterior painting, drywall installation and finishing, installation of suspended ceiling grid system and tile, insulation installation, setting of all interior and exterior door frames, hanging all doors (wood and hollow steel), installation of operable and removable shutters, attic stair installation, and temporary facilities mobilization and demobilization.
