Downtown Nashville’s Centerpiece
Bridgestone Arena serves as home to the NHL Nashville Predators and has hosted Men’s NCAA, SEC and Men’s and Women’s OVC tournaments along with a variety of concerts and community events. The 750,000-square-foot arena offers flexibility to accommodate civic and entertainment events, including a rehearsal hall, exhibit space and meeting rooms.
- To arrive at the distinctive roof design, which slopes downward longitudinally to minimize volume, we analyzed the eight stages of construction to minimize shoring during erection.
- A series of economical structural systems to frame the building’s unique icons includes the 22-story spotlight shaped visitor center/icon tower.
- The structure achieved LEED Gold certification under the LEED Core and Shell Pilot Program and uses 40% less water than a typical commercial building of this size.
