LEED Gold Certification
Designed by Atlanta-based Thompson, Ventulett, and Stainback Associates and Nashville-based Tuck Hinton Architects and Moody-Nolan Architects, the 1.2 million square foot Music City Center was designed and constructed with sustainability in mind. Our facility is certified LEED Gold by the U.S. Green Building Council. The LEED program, which stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, is the most widely used green building rating system in the world. Our high-performance building envelope is equipped with a 4-acre green roof, array of 845 solar panels and energy efficient technology.
The Music City Center started construction with the theme "reduce, reuse, recycle" and had the goal to divert at least 50% of our waste stream from the landfill, using local building suppliers, and installing 90% recycled glass within the facility. For improved indoor air quality, low emitting VOC materials (adhesives, sealants, paints, coatings, carpet, composite wood and agrifiber products) and state of the art high-performance HVAC systems were utilized. Operating within the Nashville District Energy System’s steam and chilled water supply significantly reduces the amount of refrigerant used in the facility and also decreases our energy consumption.
