This project originated from the State of Tennessee’s PROJECT T3 initiative, which called for reducing the amount of the state’s leased properties and consolidating their workforce into state-owned, upgraded properties. To speed the date of occupancy in the 419,274-SF, 16-floor Andrew Jackson Towner, the state chose a Design-Build delivery method with a deadline of six weeks for design planning prior to the start of construction. The project included demolishing existing walls, ceilings, flooring, and mechanical and electrical systems. Following demolition, the Design-Build team created a new floor plan layout of walls, ceiling, redesigned electrical and mechanical systems and incorporated life safety and ADA upgrades throughout the building. Construction also included core renovations to the elevator lobbies, restrooms, and mechanical rooms on each floor. The new mechanical systems, located on each of the 16 floors, include two new air handlers utilizing new VAV boxes, piping, and ductwork and also include a new chilled beam system that conditions the perimeter areas of each floor.
