Commercial | LANDIS CONSTRUCTION CO. LLC - JOIE DE VIVRE HOTEL

He notes that Landis Construction has learned lessons from the
Joie de Vivre Hotel project, including how to complete a high rise in
a confined space. "With this and another high-rise project underway, we're working to refine our abilities to better coordinate the
deliveries and installations of all components of the work, from the
building exteriors to the interiors," he says.
"We can more confidently go into the next one with some lessons
learned," he says. "Landis has embraced the idea that we're trying to
move from being a really good company to a great company.
"We're always learning and listening to others, and then reflecting on our own progress," Condon says, noting that the company is
never satisfied. "We know that we can always do better at the end of
the day or the next project."
He sees a strong future for Landis Construction. "Thankfully, we
had some excellent leadership that got us to where we are today,"
he says, noting that the company is in its third generation of Landis
family leadership.
Condon considers himself fortunate to have worked under the
leadership of former President and CEO Jim Landis. "Now, I am
part of the leadership team, working with his daughter, who is our
current CEO, Anne Teague Landis," he says, noting that this team
includes President Christian Generes, Vice President of Operations
Sarah Busch and General Superintendent Gary Nelerine.

An Impressive Resume
Landis Construction Co. LLC Chief Construction Officer Kyle Condon
has extensive experience in the construction industry. During his
summers away from Louisiana State University, "I obtained jobs
and internships with various construction companies ranging from
[Houston] to Eatonton, Ga.," he recalls.
"[My] summertime construction employment included positions within the residential, commercial and industrial construction sectors, as well as a job with a manufacturing company,"
Condon says, noting that he joined Landis Construction in January
2003 after graduating.
"During my first project for Landis, I was assigned to a private
school campus in New Orleans, where we were contracted to construct two new buildings," he recalls, noting that these consisted of a
four-story classroom building and a multipurpose/gym facility.
Condon served as a project engineer and assistant superintendent
on the project. "From there, I worked my way through the ranks
on many healthcare, educational, government and private sector
projects, serving as assistant project manager, project manager and
eventually project executive in 2012," he recalls.
In September 2015, he took his current role, which came with the
responsibility of running the company's Construction Operations Department and managing each of its projects, project management and
field staff. "The current position allows me for various opportunities to
lead and mentor others, which I am very passionate about," he says.
Condon recently served as the chairman on the board of directors
of the Associated Builders and Contractors' New Orleans Bayou
Chapter. "This year, [I] am serving my final year on the board as past
chairman," he says.
