Mr. H. P. Firmin Jr. founded
Firmin Incorporated in 1965 as a residential and light commercial contracting company. Mr. Firmin’s honesty, hard work, and perseverance allowed him to be one of the most respected contractors in Baton Rouge. After much recognition and success; Mr. Firmin began to concentrate on the commercial market, constructing numerous schools, churches and ageing care facilities. Mr. Firmin’s son, Mr. H.P. "Pete" Firmin III, began working for his father’s construction firm when he was 8 years old. Pete's mother was not pleased that her son had great interest in the construction industry. She told him, “Stay away from construction or you will spend the rest of your life digging ditches.” With this Pete’s father responded, “That’s ok son, just make sure you dig the big ones,” and a second generation contractor was formed.
Pete pursued his interest in the construction industry and worked for his dad after school and during summers. In 1985 Pete earned a Bachelors of Science in Construction Engineering from Louisiana State University. Subsequently, Pete founded what is now Firmin Construction Corporation in October of 1986. Firmin Construction Corporation faced numerous challenges in the beginning. Never quitting meant working all day on new construction projects, and performing building maintenance and repairs during the night, in order to make payroll next Friday. At all cost Pete and his dedicated team members pushed forward. Firmin Construction Corporation's break into larger work came in 1990 when selected to build Jefferson Baptist Church's new worship center. Due to the young age of the firm and limited capital, Firmin Construction Corporation could not bond such a large project. Pastor T.C. French Jr. of Jefferson Baptist, found no problem with the above; he knew the firm chosen was one of great value and could be trusted on a handshake. Firmin Construction Corporation completed the project on schedule and under budget. Since those formative years, Firmin Construction Corporation has sustained steady growth and has re-invested in people, resources, and equipment. Through self investing Firmin Construction has expanded capabilities to better serving clients needs, all while maintaining attention to detail.
The construction industry has certainly changed since 1965; however, Firmin Construction Corporation team members know core values such as Teamwork, Integrity, Excellence, and Service; will always remain.
