So far in 2020 despite the Coronavirus's best efforts to keep us from working, LACHIN Architects has been able to move existing projects forward while picking up some new ones. The Ascension Parish School Board's Office/Warehouse facility in Gonzales has wrapped up. The project was part of the flood repairs program following the Great Flood of 2016. Our previous experience with FEMA guidelines and applications of the 50% rule resulted in a fully funded building replacement in lieu of the partial renovation initially identified by FEMA. Our extensive disaster assistance-related successes also prepared us to handle the meticulous documentation required to ensure all project costs were accurately allocated and trackable by FEMA.
The LANCO Construction Company office is another recently completed project, and one that gave us the pleasure of working with the Lanza family with whom we have enjoyed a long-term professional relationship. The new facility in Laplace will meet the company's office and distribution needs for the future.
For those who are not aware, our firm holds a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business certification which has resulted in a significant volume of Federal projects throughout the Southeast. Currently, our team is working up multiple campus-wide projects at the Jackson, MS VA Medical Center, the largest of which is a renovation of an entire hospital floor.
In addition, our extensive portfolio of educational work continues to grow with our project at Abita Springs Middle School, multiple projects for Xavier University of Louisiana as well as several projects for Calcasieu Parish School Board.
