Palmisano Contractors forged a partnership with PlayBuild NOLA, a local educational non-profit based in New Orleans’ Central City neighborhood. This area of the city is adjacent to our Warehouse District office, so finding a way to be active in our immediate work community was a priority. PlayBuild’s mission is to transform under-utilized urban spaces into exciting kid-friendly environments for play and learning. Their goal is to engage under-served youth through creativity and active learning and to stimulate curiosity, enthusiasm, and an interest in exploring careers across a wide spectrum of design disciplines.
With assistance from a network of consultants, subcontractors, and suppliers we led the effort to build a new permanent outdoor classroom. The addition of a restroom and utility room brings needed amenities to the site. We are excited to be a part of this forward-thinking approach to revitalizing vacant inner city land.
Louisiana Green Corps
Through a partnership with Louisiana Green Corps, Palmisano Contractors has another way to give back to our community. The non-profit organization provides green job training to unemployed, under-employed, court involved or otherwise disadvantaged New Orleans residents. Palmisano has assisted their mission by placing program graduates for real-world experience on a job site. We believe in opportunity, working to reach out amongst our city and provide access where there is a need.
