Westwego Sports Complex- Moses Engineers for MEP Design Services

Client Spotlight |

Between Avondale and Marrero, Jefferson Parish is preparing plans to manage a new outdoor recreation center that would cost more than $20.6 million. This move is part of the parish’s effort to become more competitive in the field of minor sports championships.

Moses Engineers started on the MEP design work for this project in 2019 and will now be helping to oversee the Construction Administration phase of the project. Ratcliffe Construction is scheduled to begin moving into the property on Nicolle Boulevard in order to begin construction on three multi-sport fields with artificial turf, a concessions facility, paved parking, restrooms, fencing, and bleachers. It is possible that it will open by the summer of 2024, and it may have the capacity to add six fields in addition to other facilities.

The new development, which will be known as the John Alario Jr. Sports Complex, is not primarily designed for the people who live in the surrounding area, although there will be time and room for them. Instead, it is a tourist effort that was developed to organize young tournaments for sports like as baseball, softball, football, soccer, lacrosse, and rugby over long weekends for teams from out of town, as well as the players’ relatives.
