The Nashville Bridge Company


The Bridge Building


The Nashville Bridge Company was organized in 1902 by Mr. Arthur J. Dyer. Through the years, the Company experienced a continuous and expanding development, with main operations of fabricating and erecting structural steel for buildings, bridges and towers. The Marine Department of the Nashville Bridge Company built barges and towboats. As early as WWI, they filled contracts for the United States Navy, building ships and barges. During World War II, there was increased production of combat vessels and barges for the Army and Navy. Vultee and Nashville Bridge Company accounted for 72% of the city’s war supply contracts.

The historic Nashville Bridge Company Building (NABRICO) was awarded LEED-Platinum Certification. LEED, Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the foremost rating system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council for distinguishing buildings that excel in being designed, constructed, maintained and operated for improved environmental and human health performance.

The platinum rating makes the Nashville Bridge Building the world’s highest-rated building within the Core and Shell category and the first building in the state of Tennessee to receive a platinum rating.

The building renovations began in 2010 as part of the riverfront redevelopment initiative led by the offices of Mayor Karl Dean, Metro Development and Housing Agency (MDHA) and the Metro Parks Department. Key green features include: a geothermal heat pump mechanical system, LED lighting, solar water heating system, rainwater harvesting system and high-efficiency windows.

Prior to the Bridge Building earning its score, the structure with the highest LEED Core and Shell ranking was the Dockside Building in Victoria, British Columbia. There are 4,467 total structures within the LEED Core and Shell category. NABRICO is now regarded as one of the most sustainable buildings in the world as well as a key structure in Nashville’s expansive riverfront redevelopment plan to add green spaces, greenways, public gathering places, outdoor event venues and community health and wellness opportunities to the public.
