The extensive expansion of local industry and construction jobs in Lake Charles and surrounding areas, brings forth a challenge – the workforce to handle these projects. It’s inevitable, there will be an influx of laborers and tradesmen from around the country and other areas of the world that will be coming into our area, which therefore brings another challenge – housing.
The banner facility of GLS is Pelican Lodge, a first of its kind facility in that it is the largest of its kind ever to be built in the United States, currently designed to house 4,000 people, but also unique in its turnkey offering of providing accommodations, catering/facility management and transportation of workers to and from the various project sites thereby enabling the projects to maximize their own limited space.
