Text size: A A

Designed to achieve the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Silver certification, the three-story facility replaces the original L.B. Landry High School that sustained hurricane damage and was in a state of disrepair.

The new school is one of the first public schools to be built in Orleans Parish in 50 years.

Eskew+Dumez+Ripple and SHW Group provided architectural and design services for the project.

The school is designed according to the updated International Building Code, which requires increased elevation to meet new flood regulations, critical electrical equipment to be located on the third floor and the ability to withstand 130-mph winds.

The LEED design provides for sustainable elements that include a solar hot water system, the use of recycled materials and features that are expected to reduce energy costs by as much as 30 percent.
