Armstrong Park Improvements

Completed 2010


32 acres
New Orleans, LA
City of New Orleans

Hurricane Katrina left New Orleans’ Armstrong Park severely damaged, particularly the walkways and bridges throughout the park. Williams Architects worked with FEMA on the portion of the demolition and repair they funded, while producing construction documents and overseeing the construction of the project overall. Several bridges, such as the one pictured, were partially demolished and restored to their original design, as were site and landscaping features throughout the park.

The Scope also included the renovation and repair of a Fire House on the Park grounds. Williams produced construction documents for rebuilding and painting the exterior, adding front doors, repairing all windows, washing the interior, adding new exterior light fixtures, adding new lettering/signage, the installation of a new slate and membrane roof, as well as minimal electrical and drainage repairs.
