LOUIS ARMSTRONG International AIRPORT NORTH TERMINAL PROJECT
About this Project
Client: New Orleans Aviation Board (NOAB)
Project Type: heavy civil & Paving
Boh Bros., as part of the Hunt-Gibbs-Boh-Metro Joint Venture, assisted in the completion of the new Louis Armstrong International Airport North Terminal. The project became a showcase for Construction Management at Risk (CMAR), as it was the largest such project to be awarded in the state. CMAR is an integrated team approach to planning, design and construction of a project, and serves the dual purpose of controlling schedule and budget, as well as ensuring quality for the owner. The 972,000-square-foot facility boasts 35 Gates, a 2,190-car parking garage, central utility plant, and ground transportation area. Boh’s scope included concrete paving, asphalt paving, drainage, water and sewer lines outside the footprint of the terminal building. Boh paved 400,000 square yards of P501 concrete for the new apron and taxiways, 100,000 square yards of asphalt, 60,000 linear feet of piping, and 2,000 feet of box culvert. The new terminal opened in November of 2019.
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 CMAR Project

The GNOEC chose a Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) delivery method for a solution to meet their stated goals.
