New Orleans Airlift is housed in the former Met Fab shop, with facilities for carpentry, welding, masonry, mold-making and many other capabilities for artists and builders. Our unique design and fabrication studio is unlike any other in the region.
Headed by our Lead Engineer Christian Repaal, the Atelier accepts jobs from corporate, commercial, artistic, and institutional clients. Christian’s specialty is working with artists and clients to realize their plans and dreams – as a crucial part of Airlift, he directs all of our major builds, and ensures the structural integrity of our Village.
