Commercial Project Accolades

Paul Spradley, Executive Vice President of Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon – Ana Borden recently completed the bar design for Bobby Hebert’s Cajun Cannon restaurant

Ana Borden was brought on board to assist with the bar design, which is the focal point of the restaurant. Immediately, she proved herself as a competent and reliable resource. Ana was able to translate our ideas into a fixed form, while helping us negotiate around architectural and design obstacles. She coordinated with our contractor, subcontractors, and vendors to provide a complete and refined product within our limited time requirements. Ultimately we received a remarkable final product that blends seamlessly with the rest of our interior. There is no doubt we will be consulting Ana for future projects.

Craig M. Smith, AIA Associate Principal at RATIO Architects

Ana is a dedicated and focused project architect who was able to successfully execute a very complex and fast paced education project in her role as the project architect. The project team included a number of specialty engineering and equipment consultants that Ana coordinated and pushed towards a common design goal and schedule.

Ted Reichert Senior Project Manager at Berglund Construction

Ana and I worked together on a complex healthcare renovation project. Ana was reliable, knowledgeable, and thorough. In the fast paced construction industry it is key to have a design partner like Ana who knows the job and gets you answers and responses right away. I would definitely recommend her and look forward to working together on another project.

Mark Nichols, AIA Principal, Eckenhoff Saunders Architects

Ana served as Project Architect on two difficult healthcare renovation projects; Shriners Hospital for Children ICU and PACU Renovation, and LaRabida Childrens Hospital 2nd Floor Patient Unit Renovation. She provided both design and construction administration expertise in order to complete these projects successfully. Both clients appreciated her diligence and commitment toward completing the project on time and on budget.

Residential Project Accolades

Marie Ohlsson Chisholm, Residential Project Consultation

Ana recently gave us a consultation about a possible addition to our home. She was very responsive coordinating the meeting. When she arrived, she listened to what we said and offered us her advice based on what we told her. She also gave us several alternative options as well. She was easy to talk to, creative, open, and extremely knowledgeable. I highly recommend her!

Andrea in Old Metairie wrote about the conversation she had with a house guest in her newly renovated and cottage addition, “. . . and the guy could not believe that there was an addition on the house! I had to explain to him 3 times where the house used to end because he said it looks so seamless. Just another testament to your great work!”
