Their challenge

When Dave & Buster’s partnered with Poydras Properties, LLC, to open a new location in downtown New Orleans, they needed a firm to provide mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering design services. Centrally located just blocks away from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, the Central Business District, and the French Quarter, the new six-story structure totals just under 260,000 square feet including ground floor retail space, four stories of naturally ventilated parking deck, and the restaurant gaming center on the top story.

Our solution

Salas O’Brien’s design included a cold dark shell customized to the specifications of Dave & Buster’s and the retail space; an emergency generator to support the life safety systems, elevators, and fire pump; and a utility transformer vault.
