The U.S. Coast Guard’s Integrated Support Command facilities were destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. Broadmoor, in a joint venture with parent company Boh Brothers, completed construction of a replacement facility in 2010 on a 26-acre permanent home on the grounds of the NASA Michoud Assembly Facility. The resulting, new Integrated Support Facility now supports six divisions and seven tenant commands from its new, New Orleans East home.
Broadmoor was responsible for developing the design of the facilities prior to the execution of complete construction services.
The project includes an 86,000 square foot administration building with a berthing area, medical unit, dental facilities, office spaces, and complete kitchen and dining facility. It also includes a wharf and pier, boatlift and maintenance facility, and a floodgate that will allow boats to move directly from the new wharf to a 57,000 square foot industrial building.
This LEED Gold-certified industrial building houses state-of-the-art equipment such as paint and blast booths, a dynamometer, a welding shop, an HVAC shop, an electrical shop, a machine shop, a woodworking shop, and a shipping and receiving center.
