With over 250,000 man-hours worked, no loss time accidents occurred, and Broadmoor’s team was awarded the Safety Crew of the month three times in a 12 month period.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”blue” border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]

Date of Completion: February 2016[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][wpc_custom_heading heading=”The Challenge” colored_line=”yes” size=”medium”][vc_column_text]The Michoud Assembly Facility is an 832-acre site owned by NASA in New Orleans East. Organizationally, it is part of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, and is currently a multi-tenant complex, allowing commercial and government contractors, as well as government agencies, to use the site.  Most recently, Broadmoor built  the new, $26 million Vertical Assembly Building, bringing an important piece of NASA’s vision for the future of human space flight and exploration to reality.  The building will serve as the campus’s main production facility that accommodates the unique requirements associated with ARES I Upper Stage final assembly operations.

Additional work Broadmoor has complete for NASA include highly technical foundation work in preparation for housing upgraded technical equipment, renovations to industrial buildings,  constructing new equipment platforms, and the construction of a new, $21 million redundant pump station.

the Swedish industrial company ESAB, as a private contractor of NASA, contracted Broadmoor to construct the new Vertical Assembly Center for use by the new heavy-lift Space Launch System, designed to support the forthcoming missions to Mars.  This Vertical Assembly Center is the first of its kind in North America, and built alongside construction work at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”blue” border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]

Architect: Shell Engineering
Date of Completion: 2013[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″][wpc_custom_heading heading=”The Project” colored_line=”yes” size=”medium”][vc_column_text]When Shell first encountered hydrocarbons in the Mars basin in 1989, it was one of the Gulf’s largest discoveries to date.  The Olympus platform, built to manage the work at this basin, builds on a history of pace setting projects that have made Shell one of the largest oil producers in the Gulf of Mexico.

The platform, completed in 2013, is now home to 192 employees.  This living quarters module, with its architectural outfitting completed by Broadmoor, incorporates a control room and an emergency-response center.  A key factor in designing the space was to ensure there were significantly minimized safety risks to all personnel.

In a pilot program that represents an industry first, the entire project team introduced a 4D plant design management software (PDMS) to the construction project.  This system links the commonly used 3D PDMS to construction activities, providing a color-coded visual representation that displays the progression of construction over time.  This technology makes it easier for the site project team to monitor construction progress, and illustrate to the client all phases of construction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_separator color=”blue” border_width=”2″][vc_column_text]
