SSE is Helping Build the Airport of the Future for New Orleans

SSE is building the future of New Orleans by participating in the construction of the iconic new North Terminal for the Louis Armstrong International New Orleans International Airport. We are currently fabricating and erecting the structural steel for the Central Utility Plant, as well as fabricating the 48″ pipe embeds for the concrete pad that the terminal will sit on. SSE is excited to be a part of this monumental project!

SSE has been accepted into the AISC

SSE has been accepted as a Full Member into the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC), which is a non-profit technical institute and trade association. AISC was established in 1921 to serve the structural steel design community and construction industry in the United States.

SSE is Going to the Movies!

SSE is excited to be working with the Special FX team currently filming “Don’t Mess With Texas,” a new movie starring Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon. We are machining and fabricating custom valves and assemblies for special effects scenes in the film, and are looking forward to doing business with other companies filming in the New Orleans area. Production crews will delight in finding a local company that has an in-house design department that specializes in unique projects and innovative designs for many applications in the film industry. For the inevitable set emergency, when time is money, you can depend on our 24-hour Mobile Welding Team to come to your film location for on-site fabrication and repairs.

SSE Wins U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Superior Safety Performance Award

SSE was awarded the 2011 Superior Safety Performance Award from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Mississippi Valley Division) for Safety Performance in the Hurricane Protection Office. They were presented with the award on March 2, 2012 at the annual banquet of the Associated General Contractors for safety performance at the Orleans Parish Pump Station No. 13 project. SSE’s focus on safety led to the Corps’ awarding them with the prestigious award. SSE also earned this award in 2008, for their performance on the Restoration of the Suzie Canal and Orange Street Levee project in Terrebonne Parish, LA.  (Should this be longer? I have a 800-word press release I can pull from if needed)
