As the end of another year grows closer, and the holidays are upon us, let us take the time to say thank you to our clients, friends and collegues as you are the reason we do what we do.
Let us also take this time to publicly thank our fellow Bell team members, as you enable us to deliver structures and roadways to clients across the region.
Award Winning Projects
Bell is excited to announce that we recently were awarded three Excellence in Construction awards from the Associated Builders and Contractors Greater Tennessee Chapter. Each of our three projects won the highest honor in their category.
Lentz Public Health, Over $25 Million Award
The Lentz Public Health project won the Eagle Commercial: Over $25 Million award. This three-story, 106,000 square foot building serves residents of Metro Nashville. This new facility includes a combination of administrative offices, science and technology spaces, and health clinics. Designed for LEED Silver certification, significant energy conservation and reduction measures were incorporated in the completed project.
Wolf Creek Bridge, Infrastructure/Heavy Award
The Wolf Creek Bridge US25/70 won the Eagle Infrastructure/Heavy award. The Wolf Creek Bridge spans across the French Broad River and Norfolk Southern Railway in Cocke County, Tennessee.
This structure features a reinforced concrete spandrel arch bridge, and is 629 feet long, consisting of five arched spans. Its historical significance, scenic setting and strong aesthetic appeal merited TDOT’s decision to invest nearly $9 million in extensive renovation efforts of the bridge.
The Sewanee Inn, Hospitality/Hotel Award
The Sewanee Inn project won the Eagle Commercial: Hospitality/Hotel, $10 to $25 Million award. Bell served as the Construction Manager of the project which serves as the University of the South’s new $10.7 million, 64,400 square foot Inn.
The new Inn includes 45 guest room suites, a full restaurant and elegant common areas, along with a banquet hall and conference center.
