Houma Area Convention and Visitor’s Bureau

Project overview

The Vanir team delivered a successful new 3,650-square-foot interpretive center to enhance the existing Houma Area Convention and Visitor’s Bureau (HACVB). It houses an exhibit space, reception and conference rooms; office and supporting spaces; restrooms; and parking. In addition, interior and exterior renovations to the original 3,200-square-foot building were completed to better accommodate its visitors.

Demonstrating value

Both the client and the contractor had never worked with a construction manager (CM) and were initially skeptical. As a result of our willingness to keep active communication amongst all team members, we were able to change the perception of a CM’s role and the importance that it brings. Our goal was to look out for HACVB’s best interests and guide them every step of the way, and we’re confident we did just that.

Having never previously worked with a construction management firm, I was a bit hesitant at first…I find this management team to be the best in Louisiana. They are efficient, work hard to keep the project in-line and are excellent communicators.
