A Family Business
From the beginning of its history, Boh Bros. has always been about people. We are aware that our work always leaves a footprint on the communities we work in; our goal has always been to make that footprint a lasting, positive one. From the first four double-houses Boh Bros. built on Banks Street and Hagan Avenue in 1909, to the thousands of projects we have completed since then, we strive to positively impact our communities, both through our work and our lives, and to continue the legacy of the history of Boh Bros.
As a child, Arthur Boh was always inspired by the craftsman approach his father, John Pierre, took to wood and stone artistry. His patient attention to detail, innovation, and high quality standards were carried on as Arthur and his brother Henry, Henry’s son, and grandsons transformed a small construction company into one of the largest and most respected privately–owned heavy construction companies in the Southeast United States. Currently under the leadership of the third generation of the Boh family, Robert S. Boh and Stephen H. Boh, Boh Bros. completes an average of 150 projects annually.
Avondale Marine Project
Boh Bros. assisted Avondale Marine in rebuilding Dock No. 2 so that Host can use the dock’s existing pile–supported ship ways to construct a suspended roadway. Once operational, trucks will be able to carry heavy loads from dock to land, and vice versa, as the roadway will have a 100-ton capacity.
Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Safety Bays Project
The Greater New Orleans Expressway Commission (GNOEC) sought to improve the safety of the 23.83 mile Lake Pontchartrain Causeway Bridges by adding shoulders and emergency pullover areas on both spans. The GNOEC chose a Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) delivery method for a solution to meet their stated goals.

Boh Bros. traveled to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to work as the paving contractor on Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport’s $64 million rehabilitation effort. Boh Bros.’ scope included nearly $16 million in concrete paving and involved both the replacement of the North Runway and sections of Taxiway B.
