We’re a little bit Country…

We love Building What Matters – whether that’s critical infrastructure, hospitals and schools or entertainment venues that enrich local communities.

We’re proud to have played a role in the construction of the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville, TN, which the Academy of Country Music has honored with an ACM Industry Award for Venue of the Year, Medium Capacity, and cited as a “venue which contributes so much to the artistry, success and longevity of country music.” The ACM Awards will be broadcast this weekend.

As the only outdoor amphitheater in the United States to achieve a LEED Gold Certification, the venue is located inside of the redeveloped 11-acre Riverfront Park, a vibrant cultural space in the heart of downtown Nashville.

The park was conceived with sustainability in mind: diverting 88 percent of construction waste from landfill and using 30 percent less potable water than the LEED baseline. Renewable energy is generated on-site through a geothermal heating and cooling system, while a rainwater harvesting system helps recycle water for irrigation.

To learn more about the park’s sustainable redevelopment, check out our Riverfront Park infographic:
