Founded in 1966, White Star Commercial, Inc. provides general contracting, design-build, construction program management, and building services to a broad range of government, commercial, industrial, and private homeowner clients throughout Louisiana.
With its deep southwest Louisiana roots, White Star Commercial’s legacy extends to a second generation where “Quality comes First”. Originally known as Lewis Plumbing & Heating, its founder was Joseph Walter Lewis, Sr. The leadership of the company was passed to Joseph Walter Lewis, Jr., who in 1983 moved the business from southwest Louisiana to New Orleans.
White Star Commercial is an insured and commercial licensed Louisiana General Contractor, active License No. 33722 (first issued 1998). We are licensed in building construction, plumbing, mechanical, fire and sprinkler, along with municipal, public works and specialty construction. We are a Better Business Bureau accredited business.
White Star Commercial along with its predecessor, has enjoyed an impeccable reputation for over 40 years. Anchored with loyal employees who have a dedicated work ethic to providing superior services, shows how confident they feel about management’s trustworthiness and whether we are living up to our promises, grounded in our culture of honesty and integrity. WSC has 100% record of project completion with never suffering a bond default or call. “On time, on budget and value for money” is our motto.
Our architect, engineers, builders, and office staff work seamlessly together with one goal in mind: to provide a complete family of coordinated, value engineered construction services for consistent client satisfaction.
Taking a planned and systematic approach to health and safety, legal compliance and public protection, “Safety First” for all employees is embedded in our company values and our OSHA EMR rating is among the best in the industry. White Star Commercial has the ability to self-perform many aspects of a construction project, and the financial strength of the entire organization ensures each client of our reliable ability to perform – from groundbreaking to ribbon cutting … and just as important … through the warranty period.
Ultimately, our success is measured one project at a time. After the completion of each project we undertake, there must remain a satisfied client – one who will ask us back for the next project and recommend us to others. Simply put, our best gets better with every project, and the results speak for themselves – give us a call if we can help you with your next project.
That's the guiding principle behind White Star Commerical Inc.'s approach to doing business.
With many years of experience in local and statewide building projects, we have earned the enviable reputation of being a dependable, no-nonsense developer who consistently delivers rock-solid results - on time and within the budget.
