Regional Transit Authority, New Orleans, LA

Practice Areas: Architecture

Landmark Consulting is the prime Architect for the restoration of the Napoleon Transit Station. The Regional Transit Authority will be using this site as a museum to display the history of the transits and its historical operations, and for board meetings.  The Landmark team includes a firm specializing in historic architecture, a DBE engineering firm and a DBE environmental firm.  The facility was originally built in the 1800s, displaying the Gilded Age Commercial Design.  Landmark has designed the facility’s exterior to be restored to its original design with the approval of the State Historic Preservation Office (SHPO).  This project is FEMA funded and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) grant funded. The team prepared an existing condition report detailing the reasons for the adjustment.  Landmark created a cost estimating tool that tracked the scope paid by FEMA vs scope paid by FTA. The tool created justification for additional FEMA eligible costs. Landmark strategically developed scope and design to maximize the two sources of federal funding.
