About Us

Founded in 2020 by husband and wife team, Cassi Dymond and Sean Norwood, Kalimera Construction and Consulting was born out of a natural love of building and filling a niche in the New Orleans market. With over 30 years of commercial construction experience, Sean has a unique blend of project management and construction knowledge. He understands not only how to build a design but also how to actually manage the project, including budgeting, scheduling and communicating with clients. Combine that knowledge with Cassi’s background in business and restaurants and Kalimera offers a solid choice for your project needs.


Cassie Dymond


 Licensed General Contractor

 Licensed Realtor

A local restaurateur, co-owning Satsuma Cafe on Maple St. in New Orleans, a commercial and residential real estate agent with McEnery Residential, and managing partner of Kalimera Construction and Consulting. After working in the foodservice industry for over 25 years, she wanted to be able to help fellow restaurateurs locate and renovate brick and mortar spaces. Joining forces with Sean seemed like a natural fit in order to provide a one-stop service to clients looking for spaces for their own shops. Cassi oversees client communication and design phases of the construction arm as well as consulting with kitchen layout, health code regulations and overall flow of the space. She has a bachelor's degree in hospitality management from The University of New Orleans and is a Historic House Specialist here in New Orleans.
