Awards Projects

Design Engineering, Inc. (DEI) is thrilled to announce that our project, the Ironworks building, has received a preservation award from the Louisiana Landmarks Society. The award-winning projects were completed in 2022 and will be presented at a program and reception on May 24, 2023 at the Marigny Opera House.

DEI’s Ironworks building is a warehouse located at 315 Girod St. that features two Greek Revival-style storehouses dating back to 1850, which were later united and expanded to become a factory and warehouse. The team at DEI rehabilitated the space, creating 15 apartment-style units with a hotel license and a ground-floor coffee house.

This recognition from the Louisiana Landmarks Society highlights DEI’s commitment to historic preservation and architectural excellence. We are honored to be among the select group of award-winning projects that invest in New Orleans’ unique architectural landscape, making the city richer in so many ways.

We would like to thank our talented team of professionals, including Welty Architecture, DEI Contractors, Standuke Management, B1 Bank, Standuke QOF and RAMM SDF, Stonehenge Capital, Mint House, and Ironworks Coffee & Crepes, for their contributions to this project.
