Project Description: MSY East Garage

Client: Airport Parking Garage Development Group, LLC

Location: Kenner, LA

Architect: Atkins North America, Inc.

Date of Completion: November 2019

The Challenge:

The East Garage at the new Terminal C of the Louis Armstrong International Airport in Kenner consisted of 957,100 square foot, seven-story garage, and an adjacent 3,000 square foot administration building. This project also included service and access roads, steel canopies, a connecting surface parking lot at ground level, and an extensive landscaping package full of green screens and planters. Our team worked alongside an active runway and poured over 1.2 million square feet of concrete at night, including 14 consecutive weeks of concrete pour. This garage also boasts a $1.5 million-dollar Park Assist program that signals which spaces in the parking lot are available upon entering the garage.

Original Garage Completion: 2006

Expansion Completion: October 2016

Broadmoor designed and constructed the original Ochsner parking garage in 2006, a four story structure, with the ability for future expansion. As Ochsner has undertaken multiple campus wide expansions, additional parking was needed to service these new facilities. As the garage was located in the center of campus and full a majority of the time, Ochsner relied on Broadmoor to provide an effective strategy to construct the new garage floors, within budget, all while maintaining access to at least 50% of the existing parking spaces at all times throughout the duration of construction.  Numerous coordination meetings were held with the owner, A&E team members, and subcontractors to plan and coordinate the construction efforts. 4-D models, in conjunction with the project schedule, were used to visually indicate all open and closed areas. Broadmoor was able to satisfy the owner’s needs to maintain existing parking spaces, while providing a safe construction area.

As the Design-Builder for the project, our construction team worked hand-in-hand with our in-house architecture staff to ensure all design elements were coordinated and aligned with the budget. Initial concept budgets were generated early in the design process, validated at each design milestone, culminating with the execution of a GMP at the end of CD phase.  Because of our hands-on approach to this process, the project was completed under budget, 3 weeks early, and had zero safety incidents.
