Jared Ducote, Architect is a design firm dedicated to continuing the exceptional work started by T. Byron Smith.  After a decade as the design director of Landis-Audubon Contractors, a New Orleans based design/build firm, T. Byron Smith started his own firm in 1983 based on the principle of working with clients, consultants and contractors in a team environment.  Success is only achieved when all parties work together for the ultimate good of the project.  Our clients include groceries, retail developers, financial institutions and specialized industrial users. Today, Jared Ducote continues to work to facilitate the success of our clients.  Our focus is always on technically sound and efficient ways to construct facilities to meet the specific needs of the tenant.  We come to every project with our experience and an open mind, ready to work with clients and contractors to bring projects in on time and on budget.


Firm principle Jared Ducote is licensed in multiple states and has worked throughout the Southeast.  He has learned to focus on the unique goals and challenges of each project.  With experience as varied as residential additions to wastewater plants, hotel renovations to retail drug stores, and many others, Jared has been trained to clearly establish the needs of each project individually.  When industrial facilities require close coordination with equipment we work with vendors to ensure that the proper attention is paid to critical details.  When a high profile retail site garners public attention we work with clients to satisfy zoning boards and neighborhood associations to ensure the success of the project.  When national chains demand strict compliance with their building programs, we spend the time to make sure we comply with their needs.  Our focus is always customer based.


Our firm is focused on long term relationships with our clients, contractors, and consultants.  We work with consultants that we know share our commitment to provide professional service with a team approach. The majority of our work has come from repeat clients and referrals.  Many of our clients have a history of working with us for decades.  These long term relationships are maintained by staying ever vigilant to the changing needs of our clients.
