The University of New Orleans Technology Center was established to develop a research incubator on the edge of the campus. The campus is a private-public partnership, where the area is developed by a private developer for the University. Envisioned as a 4 building complex, the first 2 buildings were developed by another architect. The main tenant in the first 2 buildings was the United States Navy and they needed a 3rd building. The Mathes Group was retained to complete that building.
The Mathes Group was charged with implementing ALL the changes and client specific requirements into the spec office building development plans, as learned with the construction of the first 2 buildings. I was involved in the conversion of the CAD documents from the previous architects system to TMG's. I developed the lobby wall sections and details, as well.
