Founders Plaza at the National World War II Museum
The Founders Plaza at the National World War II Museum was constructed as a means to unify the current campus and to create a formal entry to the museum’s grounds. The space spans Andrew Higgins Drive between Camp and Magazine Streets in downtown New Orleans. The $3.5 million project was part of the latest installment of the museum’s five-year, $370 million capital expansion program. Durr’s work on Founders Plaza included demolition, underground utilities, earthwork, structural concrete, structural foundations and recessed concrete pavement. This project earned Durr Heavy Construction a national Excellence in Construction® Award from Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) in the Specialty Contractor, Sitework/ Landscape/ Hardscape category.
