Lakeshore Villages – Phases 4A & 5

D.R. Horton Inc. – Gulf Coast , a division of the number one home builder by volume in the U.S, hired four main contractors and various third-party utility providers for the expedited, phased construction of 2,000 home-ready lots and related infrastructure on its 2,000-acre residential development.


We take customer satisfaction seriously. We are a one-stop shop that meets the needs of our customers without their having to use multiple contractors. Our residential customers enjoy the cost benefits of using our award-winning asphalt manufacturing plants on the North and South Shores of Lake Pontchartrain and in Baton Rouge.

Barriere is committed to staying on schedule and on budget with minimal interruption to the residents of the Gulf South. Adhering to strict safety standards and using cutting-edge equipment and innovative technologies like drones and GPS help us to build safer and stronger communities with safe and effective road improvements. We use GPS surveying and machine controls on all of our equipment fleet for earth work and utility operations, including 3-D controls for our paving and milling operations. Our GPS systems enable us to project pay and design quantities before a project has even broken ground, which helps us to develop engineering opportunities and to implement cost-saving measures that benefit our customers.
