Bernhard Celebrates 100 Year Legacy

In 1919, William Bernhard founded Bernhard Plumbing and Sheet Metal Works in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, starting a legacy that would prosper into a new century.  What began as a small, family-owned plumbing contractor in South Louisiana is now one of the country’s largest engineering and contracting firms, delivering innovative and energy-saving services for clients across the nation.

This year we celebrate our 100 year history in the A/E/C industry. Our firm kicked off the centennial celebration with a festive gala at the L’Auberge Casino Hotel. Employees, clients, and friends gathered to commemorate four generations of notable achievements. The event included live music, dancing, toasts, and remarks from Chairman of the Board Jim Bernhard and Chief Executive Officer Ed Tinsley.
