George Washington Carver High School
Square Footage: 189,849
Owner: Recovery School District
Architect: Broadmoor LLC Design-Build
Completion Date: March, 2016
As the Design-Builder of the George Washington Carver High School, Broadmoor coordinated all design scopes of work to meet the owner’s program, balancing quality, cost, and schedule, all while facing challenging weather permitting scenarios. Our team exceeded our DBE goal of 35% and ultimately completed the project on-time, under budget, and with zero safety incidents. This new construction, 189,849 square foot school project won the National ABC Eagle Award and achieved LEED Silver Certification.
“The Broadmoor team showed exemplary performance throughout the entire Design‐Build process, and was a pleasure to work with from the start, consistently proactive in working with the State of Louisiana to ensure we received a quality building that was on time and within budget. This team has exceeded our expectations in both their customer service, attention to details, and quality of construction. We look forward to working with them again on another successful project.
Having expended over $1.4B to date, I consider Broadmoor and the Carver project one of, if not the, most successful projects undertaken in the historic SFMP program (State Facilities Master Plan for New Orleans). The RSD is proud to have selected Broadmoor for this first Design‐Build project, and illustrate to other public bodies how a Design‐Build project is superior to the lowest responsive bidder procurement method. …The Carver project was of the highest importance to the SFMP, and Broadmoor executed it flawlessly”.
