About Arch

We have know each other for the past 25 years, and we are continually building on our relationship through communication and education.  We started working together professionally after Katrina. From that point on, we knew that we would some always be working together in some capacity. Both working towards our goals of supporting our families, we went to work for larger companies.  As years went by, we worked on projects together with the hope to work together full time.

John Segura

Partner

John Segura has been working in the construction industry for over 18 years. During his college career at Louisiana State University, he worked with a local Baton Rouge developer framing houses during the summer sessions and worked as a field supervisor during the fall and spring semesters. Upon graduating, Segura moved back home to New Orleans and worked as an assistant project manager for a commercial construction firm. After Hurricane Katrina, he decided to got back to the Residential sector and worked with many people who lost everything and were forced into rebuilding their homes and lives. He then moved back into the commercial sector and spent five years as a project manager and the last eight years as solely an estimator.

Segura prides himself on problem-solving and developing the most efficient and cost-effective approaches during the pre-construction stages. To stay up to date on current pricing and products, he maintains a detailed database for historical budget pricing and products. This gives the firm the ability to produce realistic budget costs for designers and owners based on their standard narrative and schematic design before the potential client invests money into a project that may not be a reality.
