Hal Collums has been my GC of choice in New Orleans for the past 10 years. His eye for detail, impeccably gorgeous work and comprehensive knowledge of historical renovation is unequaled in my experience as a designer. I have also hired Hal to work with me in the Bahamas.
Especially impressive is Hal’s ability to navigate and solve any challenging construction conundrum I bring to him or solve any unforeseen problems that arise (this happens often with old homes and high-end clients). He seems to shine even more brightly when he has a puzzle to solve, and always solves it brilliantly and creatively.
Even under the most challenging time frame or circumstances.
He continually pulls the rabbit out of the hat for me, and goes above and beyond to deliver something that surpasses his very tough criteria and mine.
The integrity that Hal brings to every job speaks for itself.
If only I had Collums Construction everywhere in the world that I work…

I have been buying heart pine to repair old floors for 2 years now. They will custom mill small orders and have it ready in a few days. They do great work and the price is always fair.

My wife and I decided we wanted custom bookshelves that incorporated the fireplace with a build-in-entertainment center cleverly concealing the electronics. After reviewing some of [Hal Collums’ companies] prior work and its huge facilities we decided to give them a try. From the very beginning the design team met with us on multiple occasions to give ideas and hone in on what would work for us using computer aided design and automated millwork tools. The automated router made moldings to the level of a European Artesian. The company is big with a lot of workers but what impressed us was the owner had a hands on approach through each stage of our project to make sure we were satisfied. The final results display quality and attention to detail. We will be back!

Our job involved partitioning off the end of a long living room in order tocreate a third bedroom for our 14 yr old son in our downtown condo. For re-sale we were concerned that a bedroom might not be as attractive to buyers as a library or study. For that reason, we hired [Hal Collums’ companies] to design and construct [and install] a book-shelf wall that opens to a small room. The interior of the room has a wood-paneled wall backing the bookcase. The wall was carefully engineered to assure smooth operation and impeccably finished to resemble fine furniture. We are completely satisfied with the workmanship…. Very good customer service.
