National WWII Museum Expansion Project Under Way
Houston-based Satterfield & Pontikes Construction is building the National World War II Museum in New Orleans. The 70,000-sq-ft addition includes a theater, a live entertainment venue and restaurant. It is the largest attraction to open in the city since Hurricane Katrina.
The project is an ongoing $300-million capital expansion project. Upon completion, it will create a six-acre campus of exhibition pavilions illuminating the American experience during World War II.
