Brandow & Johnston’s President Emeritus, Gerard Nieblas, SE (pictured at left), presented “Design & Construction of the Tallest Building West of the Mississippi” to over 500 people at the Louisiana Civil Engineering Conference and Show. The Show, sponsored by the New Orleans Branch of ASCE, is held annually at the Pontchartrain Center in Keller, LA. The Wilshire Grand tower is over 1100ft. tall and was completed in June 2017. Gerard, Peter Maranian and the rest of B&J’s staff spend more than 5 years on the design and construction of this record-setting structure.
