ENVIRONMENTAL EDUCATION CLASSROOM
New Orleans, LA – Broadmoor, LLC provided the construction of a new facility
to be installed in the Lower Ninth Ward neighborhood on display at the Greenbuild 2014 International Conference and Expo held in New Orleans. Called the Environment Education Classroom, the facility was designed and constructed for the Lower 9th Ward Center for
Sustainable Engagement and Development (CSED). Visit: www.sustainthenine.org.
Designed by Eskew+Dumez+Ripple Architects, www.eskewdumezripple.com, the project is a learning
facility for water resources and much more. The facility serves several functions: as an
education center to teach K-12 students about water quality, water
conservation, and storm water control; as a community meeting space; and as an
occasional laboratory for water research by visiting university students. All of this was accomplished within a footprint of 14 X 40 feet.
The construction of the structure was provided by Broadmoor at the our main offices in
Metairie, LA, with the help of many product and services contributors. The EEC was transported to the Green Build
2014 International Conference and Expo held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention
Center where construction was completed inside of the exhibition hall. After the Expo the Environmental Education Classroom will be placed permanently in the Ninth Ward
neighborhood as a public service facility.
Greenbuild is the premier event for sustainable building. The event features many keynote speakers,
networking opportunities, product showcases, LEED workshops and tours of green
buildings in New Orleans. For more
