Arthur & Henry Boh
Broadmoor LLC traces its roots back to Boh Bros, civil construction experts in the Gulf South that have continued to build infrastructure and industrial projects for over a century. Founded by Arthur P. Boh in 1909, Boh Bros completed their first project on the corner of Banks Street and Hagan Avenue in New Orleans. This project continues to serve as a reminder of the substantial contributions Boh Bros has made to New Orleans infrastructure over the last 100+ years. Their mark on this region includes 29 of the city’s 31 overpasses constructed by the time World War II began. This legacy has since spanned a variety of successful projects from the Causeway Bridge to the largest municipal raw water intake system in the US, located on the corner of Dakin St and the Mississippi River. Today, their work remains focused on infrastructure and industrial projects throughout the Gulf South region.
Broadmoor LLC, originally named Broadmoor Corporation was founded in 1973 to pursue commercial building contracts and began by concentrating on highways, warehouses, and other industrial projects. In the late 1980s, Broadmoor sought and won the $89 million-dollar New Orleans Convention Center Expansion and had the privilege of performing two more phases at this landmark. The pursuit and execution of high-profile commercial projects set the foundation for many successful large-scale endeavors in New Orleans and the surrounding region for the next 20+ years.
In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, Broadmoor helped the Superdome, Tulane University, Lakeside Shopping Center, the Louisiana National Guard, and many more organizations with much-needed repairs. The most notable of which is the $127 million restoration and renovations to the Superdome. Additional projects completed as a direct result of the storm included the $81 million-dollar Coast Guard ISC Relocation, the NASA Michoud Facility in 2010, and the construction of a new campus for the Holy Cross School.
By 2011, the city of New Orleans partnered with Broadmoor to turn a 28-acre plot of land into public housing. This $86 million-dollar project would come to be known as the Treme’ Lafitte Housing Development and would offer 900 rental units and 600 homes to better serve the Greater New Orleans community.
We place an emphasis on planning during both preconstruction and construction. As the founder of the New Orleans Lean Construction Institute (LCI) Community of Practice in 2017, we are focused on bringing Lean principles to our market. Lean is a culture – a culture built around teamwork, collaboration, planning, safety, and continuous improvement. We take the time to accurately plan our work in a collaborative environment with buy-in from all parties. Our Lean Principles bring value to our projects through scheduling, cost efficiency, and control.
