Lee Company was selected to build the mechanical and plumbing for Nashville’s newest state-of-the-art Triple-A ballpark. The completed 100,000 square foot facility holds 10,000 people, with fixed seats and suites. The project was designed as a multi-use facility to accommodate city events, an enhanced greenway, and public green spaces. The project consisted of seven public restroom groups, seven concession areas, a main kitchen, and an underground maintenance building. The HVAC consisted of multiple systems, including packaged rooftop units, variable refrigerant volume systems, dedicated outside air systems and split systems, general exhaust, and kitchen grease exhaust. The LEED Silver ballpark construction was completed within 12 months for the spring of 2015’s baseball season opener which meant a homerun for Lee Company!
