Next phase of the Convention Center’s $557M upgrade project

Renderings by NANO LLC released this week showcase the next phase of the New Orleans Ernest N. Morial Convention Center‘s upgrade project. The projected renovations include a new third level and a ballroom with a view of the Mississippi River. The overall project has already completed several noticeable upgrades including the 7.5-acre pedestrian park, completely renovated restrooms, upgraded energy-efficient lighting, and new cooling and heating systems.

Moses Engineers provided designs for the original electrical and mechanical systems back when the Convention Center first opened in 1984. We’ve also provided the upgraded designs for it’s renovation and are thrilled to continue to work for the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. The sustainability upgrades include an overhaul of its lighting, heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems – designs which were all provided by Moses Engineers. These upgrades will save hundreds of thousands of dollars and millions of kilowatt hours.
