Sheriff Craig Webre announced the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex has been recognized with a national project achievement award. The Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) named the Lafourche Parish Correctional Complex the top project in the country among all government construction under $50 million. The project consultant, Best Management Practices Consulting, LLC, was also recognized in the award presentation.
Sheriff Webre said, “This national award is a reflection of the tireless efforts and tenacious work by our staff, consultants, and contractors who saw this project through from the planning phase to completion.”
In August, the Correctional Complex received the regional honor from the association’s Gulf Coast Chapter, allowing for an opportunity for the national honor. Sheriff Webre then accepted the national award on September 26, 2019, at the CMAA National Conference and Trade Show in Orlando, Florida. The Correctional Complex was one of 14 construction projects across the country honored for outstanding achievement in construction management.
Sheriff Webre added, “The credit for this belongs to the citizens of Lafourche Parish who voted to tax themselves to construct a new, safer jail. We have constructed a facility that has met and hopefully exceeded those expectations. Our ultimate goal was to usher in a new era of corrections for our parish, and we now have an amazing facility to accomplish that goal.
