Our Mission

Whether you’re looking for a site, building a new structure, or improving, expanding, even reconfiguring your facility, Brown Builders serves as your partner and advocate throughout the construction process. Our goal is to bring your vision to life, ensure you are heard and your budget is honored. We want you to enjoy the process and have a great experience while working with Brown.


The personal safety and health of Brown Builders employees and of those subcontractors under our management is of primary importance to us. Our commitment to safety is unwavering, and this commitment is reflected in every facet of our operations.

In the construction industry, safety is not negotiable— it is promise we make to our workforce and partners.

Our employees are our most valuable assets, and we want to make sure that they return home safely to their families every night. We're not content with just meeting standards; we strive to exceed them, setting new benchmarks for safety in the construction industry. We are proud to have been presented with the Presidents Circle Risk Control Excellence Award by General Contractors Insurance LTD in 2022 and 2023.


In 1971, Wayne Brown joined his father James and brother Doug, who were running a successful home building company, and formed a commercial construction company he named Brown Builders, Inc. Delivering a quality project to our clients in the shortest amount of time at the lowest cost has always been Brown Builders’ top priority.

Wayne Brown's introduction of the design-build concept to this region over 50 years ago was groundbreaking. Brown Builders was the first in this area to streamline the process between design and construction, which has now become a mainstream method of contracting.

In 2013, Kristen Brown took over leadership as President of the company and has since guided an experienced and talented group of individuals to deliver exceptional construction services, setting new standards of excellence in the industry.

Today, Brown Builders is the largest certified woman-owned general contractor in Louisiana.
