Ochsner Health System at Benson Tower

When Ochsner Health System looked towards Benson Tower to establish a presence in downtown New Orleans, Woodward was selected as the general contractor to build out seven floors to accommodate Ochsner executives and administrative staff.

Woodward built out office space for Ochsner Health System on floors 2, 3 and 23-26 of the recently renovated Benson Tower. Built for the relocation of approximately 750 employees, the space can accommodate 1,000, giving the organization room to grow. To service the organization on multiple floors, work included the addition of a stair, elevator, restrooms and new mechanical and electrical systems. The elevator was built into an existing space within Benson Tower, presenting unique challenges for the Woodward team as it was hung from the existing building structure.

Woodward completed the build out in June 2013, allowing Ochsner to relocate as the city seeks to establish a medical hub downtown.
