Our Bridge Structure resources are equipped to safely construct:

For decades, Gilchrist Construction has been a leader in concrete paving across our region. Our highly skilled work force and large fleet of paving equipment leads the way in highway paving, municipal construction, concrete pavement rehabilitation, and airfield paving.
At Gilchrist Construction Company, we live our vision to lead the way in the construction industry. One example is our participation in the design-build project concept. The Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LaDOTD) was approved to advertize and award five contracts using design-build methodology
GCC participated in four of the five using this innovative delivery, and became the only contractor to be awarded two design-build contracts for the LaDOTD.
Following our success in the procurement process, GCC relied heavily on the knowledge and experience of our work-force, as well as our design consultants to deliver successful projects. Both projects were completed within the allotted contract time, allowing GCC to be the first contractor to complete a design-build project for the LaDOTD.
