Nashville bridge building renovations help with water conservation
Hastings Architecture completed the renovation of the former Nashville Bridge Company building for Nashville’s Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency. The building houses public restrooms and concessions on the first floor, for use by patrons of the neighboring water park, and office spaces on the upper floors. The 4,500-sf roof and 2,800-sf patio collect rainwater, which is reused in the restrooms, providing an estimated savings of more than 172,000 gallons of water annually. The Building Team also includes: RG Anderson Company (contractor), Hawkins Partners (landscape architect), Barge Cauthen & Associates (CE), EMC Structural Engineers (SE), and Power Management Corporation (MEP).
