Tulane University Goldring - Woldenberg Business Complex Expansion and Renovation
Client: Tulane University
Location: New Orleans, LA
Architect: Pelli Clark Pelli Associates Manning Architects
Date of Completion: March 2018
Broadmoor recently completed the renovation to and expansion of the Goldring-Woldenberg Complex housing the A. B. Freeman Business School at Tulane University. A convergence of two buildings, connecting each with a stunning architectural design, complimenting the mature oaks with a wave of glass that illuminates the interiors. Broadmoor has provided several value engineering options which have been incorporated into this project for Tulane. The most significant of which is the double monorail system designed for the installation of the curved curtain wall on the face of the building. With mature oaks and a 4-story glass face, a unique and innovative system was designed and built to handle the individual glass panels, lowering them from the top of the facility into place. Our success on the Tulane Goldring / Woldenberg Complex is a testament of our team’s ability to execute on projects with detailed logistics, and installations. Due to the success of this project, Broadmoor has been selected to construct the new Tulane Dining Commons project located approximately 1000 feet away from the business complex.
WITH THE IMPLEMENTATION OF “LEAN” CONSTRUCTION INSTITUTE’S TOOLS AND PRACTICES, THE PROJECT WAS COMPLETED AHEAD OF SCHEDULE AND WITHIN BUDGET.
