“My mother and I contracted Fred to build a custom home featuring an elevator, whole-home generator and substantial surface drainage. In addition, Phipps Enterprises demolished our old house and several other buildings on the property, erected a 2,875 sf steel building, and performed a custom interior build-out to accommodate show dogs and horses.
Fred was always very professional and well organized. Due to many road blocks, our project took several extra months to complete, but we didn’t incur any additional charges from Fred. The cost of the project was very fair, though not the cheapest. The quality of the materials and work was first class. The city inspectors were also very impressed with the workmanship.
Fred was always looking out for our best interests. We were kept up to date and he always made time to answer any questions we had. He visited the job site on a regular basis and handled all aspects of the job in person. He was never more than a phone call away. He truly cared about our project and took pride in his work.”

“It is my pleasure to highly recommend Phipps Enterprises. Fred undertook a major $500,000 restoration of Charlie’s Steak House in Uptown New Orleans. All work was performed within the budget, including all necessary changes, and on time, which was extraordinary under the circumstances. In addition, tens of thousands of dollars of work was performed without the usual contractor markup.
Fred is an excellent communicator and motivator. His cheerful approach to our project was always greatly appreciated. We now proudly display a photo of Fred and his crew at Charlie’s.”

“Thank you for an excellent job on constructing my $425,000 custom two-story home. Even though the complex design required a lot of know-how, the house passed all inspections on the first try. Fred solved many problems during construction, and I greatly appreciate Mr. Phipps for working with my architect through the entire process. The subcontractors he chose were very professional and did a great job.
During the process, I made several changes resulting in an additional $30,000 in change orders. Mr. Phipps did not add any contractor markup in order to keep total costs as close as possible to the original budget.
I was an engineer for over 50 years and I could honestly say I give Phipps Enterprises my highest recommendation.”

“Phipps Enterprises has provided construction management services for my personal residences and investment projects for more than 15 years, totaling more than $2 million and counting.
Fred has been involved 100% in all of my projects and is very personable and honest. He pays attention to details and is a perfectionist. From a business standpoint he is by far the most detailed and organized contractor I have ever met. He goes far beyond the paperwork and documentation that most contractors limit themselves to. The quality of his subcontractors is first class; their work is impeccable.
I am glad I met Mr. Phipps, and I recommend him for any commercial or residential project.”
