Virgin Hotel New Orleans
Square Footage: 162,491 SF
Architect: Mathes Brierre Architects
Completion Date: June 2021
Located on the corner of Baronne Street and Lafayette Street, the Virgin Hotel New Orleans project is a 14-story new construction hotel that features multiple public spaces, outdoor terraces, and a back-of-house office build-out for the hotel staff. As the Design-Builder, Broadmoor overcame the challenging coordination and logistics of the project’s tight site footprint in downtown New Orleans. The specialty interior and exterior glazing scopes, high-end finishing, and public spaces offer a one-of-a-kind hotel experience in New Orleans.
“Broadmoor has exceeded our technology expectations by incorporating BIM in a useful format for our ownership team. The use of this 4D model, which tracks construction progress in reference to the future date of each milestone has been especially beneficial for our team to evaluate and forecast progress on the construction sequence at any given time in the schedule. Ongoing sharing of information and model, overlaid with the current progress on-site has been pivotal to our successful coordination with your team. We appreciate the transparency this model has brought to the construction process, and we believe it has increased accountability for all involved.”
