Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport
Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport - We've provided planning, engineering & architectural services for the long-term development of the airport, and in turn will help create "the most transformative project for New Orleans since the Superdome" (according to Mayor Mitch Landrieu). The development will serve as a gateway that combines the region’s unique colonial past with its cosmopolitan present, supporting the emergence of New Orleans as a destination city.
