New performing arts building at Isidore Newman

Isidore Newman School, located in Uptown New Orleans, has just opened a new Performing Arts Building for students. The local school has a national reputation and has been open since 1903. Isidore Newman School is an independent, co-educational, non-denominational day school for children in early childhood all the way through 12th grade.

The Joy and Boysie Bollinger Performing Arts Building is a 5,500 square foot building that just finished construction this month. It was named after its benefactors who donated $3 million for the project. The entire project cost $6.5 million and includes two rehearsal rooms, three practice rooms, and the Bart Gallery. The Bart Gallery features student artwork alongside the school’s permanent collection and named for Cathy and Morris Bart, who also donated to the project.

Vue Orleans now on Archello

Archello is a business networking platform for the built environment that was founded in 2009. It’s essentially a ‘HUB’ between the creative and making industry that features an open architectural and design product selection tool. On Archello, everyone can tell their story as it is a free and open platform. Its users can expand their network and present themselves to the building industry by connecting with each other, to projects, products, or materials.

Vue Orleans just opened this summer, and Moses Engineers provided all of the Four Seasons Hotel with their MEP designs. The mechanical and engineering features for the project included HVAC with bi-polar ionization, heat refrigerant recovery, and MERV 13 Filters. We also provided designs for the hotel’s hot and cold domestic water systems, domestic water distribution, and sanitary waste. The electrical engineering features provided by Moses Engineers include power throughout the residences, lighting design, fire alarm, and also lighting control system integration.

Four Seasons Celebrates First Year

This month marks the first anniversary of the Four Seasons Hotel New Orleans opening at the foot of Canal Street, and they have had an incredible first year! Moses Engineers was honored to provide the MEP designs for this project, including the fire protection and lighting design. To celebrate their anniversary the hotel’s PR team compiled a list of numbers to celebrate their success:

  • $550 million to transform New Orleans’ historic World Trade Center, which in turn spurred development along the riverfront
  • 80,000 single-use amenities saved from landfills as part of the hotel’s commitment to eliminating single-use plastics
  • 72,145 guest check ins & 477 employees strong

“This has been an extraordinary year and I could not be prouder of our team and their efforts,” said Mali Carow, the hotel’s general manager, in a press release. “The overwhelming support from the community has been boundless, and we are honored to be part of the tremendous hospitality industry of this great city.”
