A shake-up in the organization of one of the ventures vying to build Louis Armstrong International Airport’s new terminal has bumped one of the state’s largest minority-owned engineering firms up to a full partner in the project, while dropping a firm that had been a source of controversy.
When the team that had been organized as Parsons Odebrecht submits a proposal for the $546.5 million terminal next month, it will do so as NOLA Airport Builders, a new joint venture that now includes a seat for Royal Engineers and Consultants at the head of the table and leaves out Woodward Design+Build.
That reorganization seems aimed at shoring up the company’s weak points even as it doubles down on the themes that received a positive reception the first time it faced off against Hunt Gibbs Boh Metro, a competing joint venture that includes several local firms.
