Winner of the 2016 ABC Pyramid Award for Excellence in Construction

The Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans chose to undertake several upgrades and renovations before the opening of the 2016 football season.  New high-definition end zone video boards were installed to enhance the viewing experience of the fans, and to keep the competitive edge among other major entertainment venues across the country.  The new video boards span 352-feet wide by 40-feet high, ranking among the largest in the National Football League.  In order to facilitate safe installations at a location 200’ over the stadium seating, scaffolding was built along the entire span of the video boards, allowing for maneuvering of personnel and equipment.  The North and South End Zone Video Systems were erected in tandem at opposite sides of the arena using a custom ladder system eliminating the need for a crane.  This process was a prime example of our implementation of “Lean” tools and practices, by eliminating waste, we weer able to remove the multiple mobilization and demobilizations that would have occurred if a floor crane would have been used, saving not only time, but millions of dollars in cost associated with the crane.

BROADMOOR’S STRATEGIC SCHEDULING, EFFICIENT PLANNING, AND INNOVATIVE USE OF THE GEDA LIFT SYSTEM RESULTED IN AN EARLY COMPLETION DESPITE THE MAJOR OBSTACLE OF WORKING AROUND A STRICT SCHEDULE OF PRE-SEASON GAMES AND CONCERTS EVENTS.
