Enjoying Over 45 Years in the Building Industry
Broadmoor was founded in 1973 by Boh Bros. Construction Co. LLC, a private, family-owned, heavy civil contractor based in New Orleans. Boh Bros. had a small building division which was expanded into a separate company to more actively operate in the building market. The new company, Broadmoor, was formed and successfully provided construction services for commercial and industrial clients from Baton Rouge to the mouth of the Mississippi River. Then, in 1982, Broadmoor expanded its services in what was an emerging design-build market with in-house design capabilities.
By 1986, the company had grown enough to focus on pursuing larger projects in a well-timed response to the burgeoning economy of the 1980’s. The business model was concentrated on growing the design-build services, pursuing larger projects, and developing unique opportunities in niche markets.
In 1988, Broadmoor won the public bid to construct the Phase II Expansion of the New Orleans Convention Center, valued at $92 million. The award of this project was a milestone that changed the nature of the work Broadmoor would continue to pursue.
In 1989, Broadmoor negotiated the largest design-build contract in the state of Louisiana at the time. It was also one of the largest facilities of its kind in the country: a 1.1 million square foot distribution center for a well-known national retailer. With the success of those first two large scale projects, the foundation was in place for many successful and award winning projects in New Orleans and the surrounding region.
Since 1990 Broadmoor has grown to average over $100 million in yearly revenues and has executed over $2 billion in contract value since that time. After 2005, in the post-Katrina era of building in New Orleans, Broadmoor has been actively involved in rebuilding our community. We have worked on the re-construction of such iconic facilities as the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, and we continue to enjoy exciting building opportunities that support the future of New Orleans and the Gulf Coast Region.
