Edward Livingston High School
Gibbs Construction works tirelessly to insure that the safety, quality, and working environment are of the highest priority. The Gibbs Construction project team at both schools is the definition of ""Professional."" The ease of communication and experience of the project teams was essential in resolving problems and completing these projects successfully.

Edward Livingston High School is a beacon of the rebirth of the Hurricane Katrina-ravaged New Orleans East community. The LEED Silver 107,000-square-foot new construction houses instructional space, administrative support space, a regulation-sized gym with specialized stage and lighting, an acoustically-rated black box music and performance room, a fitness room, a full-service commercial kitchen, a 3,000-square-foot media center, and the latest information technology services. The superstructure consists of steel framing supporting a concrete/metal form deck. The roof structure is steel framing with metal deck. Interior partitions are a mix of metal stud and gypsum board construction and non-load-bearing concrete masonry. The exterior cladding is brick and aluminum metal wall panels. The roof systems are metal panels and SBS modified membrane. The interior finishes include VCT, terrazzo, ceramic and quarry tile, and acoustic panel ceilings.
