A History of Excellence

humble beginnings

lamulle construction origins

During World War II, EJ Lamulle learned the right way to drive pilings while building docks in the pacific. He returned home to a new battle rebuilding his neighbors’ raised homes, camps, and piers along the Louisiana coast after the hurricane of 1947. Now in the hands of David and John, Lamulle Construction remains the industry leader in the driving of piles and construction of sills for elevated foundations for homes and businesses. From slab foundations to elevated foundations and all your pile driving needs, we continue to build secure waterfront foundations for the people of New Orleans, the best people in the world.

During World War II, EJ Lamulle refined his skills pile driving while constructing docks in the Pacific. Upon his return home, he encountered a fresh challenge—rebuilding his camp on the storm-ravaged Louisiana coast following the hurricane of 1947. As word spread of his successful reconstruction, neighbors approached him for assistance with their own rebuilding efforts, marking the inception of Lamulle Construction. From these humble beginnings, our commitment to excellence has guided us through decades of serving the community with top-tier construction services.

    I gave these guys a five star review 7 years ago when they built my pier and boathouse. Primarily because they were great to work with and were very professional. Now after a big hit from Ida I felt compelled to update. What can I say, my pier is perfect and my neighbors are gone. These guys know their business. Listen to them and pay the fair price they will quote. I've been thru several storms but this was a big test and EVERYTHING is perfect!! (more…)
