LifeWay Headquarters at Capitol View

Nashville, TN

ICT provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services for the new Class A corporate headquarters of LifeWay Christian Resources. The project included a nine-story office tower with approximately 212,000 SF of office space, 25,000 SF of dining/conference space, and a 750-car parking garage.

Our mechanical design efforts for the project included early energy modeling and life cycle cost of available mechanical platforms. Each proposed option was thoroughly evaluated by the design team, Owner, and Construction Manager for constructability, life cycle cost, sustainability, and estimated return on capital investment. Final system selection consisted of self-contained water-cooled unitary DX systems (SWUD) with waterside economizing and hot water heating.

Key elements of the electrical design included energy-efficient LED lighting, wireless networked lighting controls, and a 750 KW standby generator. The lighting system included daylighting, audio-visual integration, and occupancy-based control.

The MPE design for this project utilized the REVIT BIM platform to deliver a fully coordinated MPE model for construction.
