Green Door creates new, innovative and environmentally adequate homes in the Gulf Coast Region


Green Door Construction was created in 2006 by the engineer Patrick Ibert in order to contribute to the building of a sustainable Gulf Coast region. Ibert was inspired to create innovative structures that would withstand the hazards typical to the region after his father’s house was destroyed by a neighbourhood fire one week after Hurricane Katrina.


Green Door provides full general contracting services for new residential construction in Southeast Louisiana. The mission statement is ‘to build strong, sustainable, energy efficient structures that promote human and environmental health’. It is the only company in greater New Orleans to specialise in Aerated Autoclaved Concrete (AAC), an innovative product that can be used for insulation and fire/termite protection.
