Construction firm for renovations to Mercedes-Benz Superdome approved, renderings released, reports


The Louisiana Stadium and Exposition District voted Thursday, Nov. 14 to approve the first phase of the planned $450 million renovation of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome by approving a construction firm, reported.

The first renderings from Trahan Architects were released as well.

Broadmoor was approved as the construction firm for the first phase, which largely will consist of back-of-house work, building a large kitchen and food-service area and adding exits to prepare for the removal of the ramps inside the Dome. The cost of the first phase could reach $100 million. The Saints have agreed to pay for up to $150 million of the total project costs with the LSED and state covering the rest.
