Ochsner West Tower Expansion
Owner: Ochsner Clinic Foundation
Architect: Rozas Ward Architects
Completion Date: October 2018
The vertical expansion to the Ochsner West Tower adds seven floors and over 186,000 square feet to their existing seven story hospital, at the institute’s main campus on Jefferson Highway. With a total of 102 new rooms added, the first three floors of the expansion are acuity-adaptable nursing units capable of housing ICU level patients while the remaining floors housed machinery or were shelled for future use. When a project of this kind presents itself, it takes a considerable team effort to even approach a solution, and yet our team was able to support the mission to provide a safe construction site for the hospital staff, patients, visitors, and construction team.
“The Broadmoor team showed exemplary performance throughout the entire construction process and was a pleasure to work with throughout the construction process. They provided a consistent and proactive approach in working with Ochsner to ensure we received a quality building that was delivered on-time and within budget. We were pleased in the care Broadmoor took in providing a safe environment on our main campus, their commitment to maintaining a smooth flow of traffic throughout the project, and their efforts to adhere to the project schedule.”
