The Claiborne and Galvez Office Buildings in
the Louisiana State Capitol Park are two spectacular buildings Broadmoor
constructed for the Louisiana State Office of Facility Planning and Control.
Both are beautifully appointed buildings, housing a variety of departments for
the State of Louisiana’s operations.
Broadmoor worked with Milton J Womack to provide comprehensive
construction services for these facilities under a joint venture partnership.
The Claiborne Office Building is an
eight-floor, 485,000 square foot building housing seven different departments
of the State. In addition to the main office building itself, a four level,
1,300-car parking garage, two separate surface parking lots, extensive site
work, a service drive, and loading dock are all included on the building’s
campus. The building is a steel frame
structure clad with precast concrete panels. In addition to a significant
amount of office space, the project also features a state-of-the-art assembly
space where public hearings and government meetings are frequently held.
The Galvez building is a 13-floor, 350,000
square foot facility that houses several state agencies as well. The project
also includes a Conference Center that can be used in association with the
office tower or be completely secured from the main building for after-hour
