In partnership with Entergy New Orleans, Barriere demolished and reconstructed a defunct electrical substation in New Orleans. We constructed 170 concrete foundations for the new electrical structures, installed a duct bank nine feet deep as part of the power distribution infrastructure, and built a concrete retaining wall to contain the fill required to achieve the finished grade.


We have created a state-of-the-industry communications system that allows many parties to access critical information quickly while avoiding congestion and confusion and ensuring the safety of our power projects. Having one contact person for all communication means that our partners can rely on us to complete work safely, on-schedule, and on-budget.

Thanks to our commitment to continuous improvement and trending key performance indicators, Barriere has improved and streamlined many vital processes and procedures over the years, including response time, risk-based inspection, analysis of root-cause failure, and planning and scheduling. Condition-based monitoring has streamlined our total productive maintenance practices to lead us on a path to “World Class.”

“To work with a highly regarded firm which puts safety first and takes pride in their work at every step has been a tremendous learning opportunity. While fabrication of the containment wall system was a daunting task with unique challenges every step of the way, Barriere’s project managers and superintendents were always looking to the next task and staying on top of all aspects of this project.”
