Who We are

Founded in 2003 by Chris Stuart, we began as a typical construction business with a small team dedicated to quality, integrity, and safety.

We grew organically over the years, adding key pieces to the organization that has provided us with sustained growth. On January 1st, 2018, Duane Mizell and Tyler Tramonte purchased the company. They have strived to maintain the basic values and construction principles the previous generation ingrained in them.

A large part of our growth resulted from our internal process development. Our processes and procedures instill a level of thoroughness on a project’s front end that helps to mitigate issues as the project evolves. Our youthful, energetic office team pushes the envelope with today’s technology. We provide clients with project documentation and updates so we can remain transparent throughout the entire process. Our field team includes experienced construction veterans who understand client concerns and consistently deliver projects on time and within budget.

Together, we approach each project with you, our client, as a partnership. Every partnership is an opportunity to share in enhancing the design, offering cost-saving options, and improving efficiencies. We pledge to do all we can to ensure our work provides you with an efficient process and the maximum return on your investment.

Total Client Satisfaction

We hold ourselves to a higher standard and work to complete the job on time and within budget. Satisfaction is our driving principle and primary directive, and most important value. We don’t stop working until you’re pleased with the results. We go to great lengths to stay connected to all clients and partners once a project is complete.

In this business, a lasting client relationship is one of the most valuable tools in our arsenal. We do everything we can to make sure that our clients are happy with the work that we’ve done, but our work doesn’t stop there. We go to great lengths to stay connected to all of our clients and partners once a project is complete. When you partner with us for your construction needs, it’s a partnership that lasts.

Chief Executive Officer

Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering, LSU 2006

About Me:

My primary role at Stuart & Company is overseeing the operations side of the business. I was drawn to the construction industry because I enjoy completing tasks that show visible progress. In college, I accepted an offer to work at Stuart during the start-up stage, and it has been a life-changing experience. The two things I enjoy most about my job are the variety of people I engage with daily and solving problems. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family and coaching my two sons’ sports teams.

Chief Operating Officer

Bachelor of Science, Construction Management, LSU 2009

About Me:

My primary role at Stuart & Company is implementing business processes and overseeing the pre-construction side of the business. From a young age, I was always interested in building things-from playing with Legos and Lincoln Logs to building tree houses and deer stands. A few of my friends went into Construction Management and told me good things about the program, which furthered my interest in the industry. The aspect I enjoy most about my job is the constant changes that come with new challenges. I also enjoy talking with and working with the different stakeholders of a project. Outside the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, coaching my kids in sports, watching LSU sports, and spending time at the hunting camp.
