Bicentennial Capitol Mall
S&ME has been privileged to be involved with several aspects of this Tennessee State Park and Nashville icon. The Mall is anchored at one end by the State Capitol Building, and at the other by the TN State Museum and the TN State Library Archives Building, both of which have been influenced by S&ME’s design and quality capabilities. S&ME provided civil site engineering and geotechnical services for the Museum, a $160 million building, whose mission is to procure, preserve, exhibit, and interpret objects which relate to the social, political, economic, and cultural history of Tennessee and Tennesseans. On the other side of the plaza sits the new 165,000 SF, $125 million Library Archives building. S&ME supported Turner Construction with construction testing and special inspection services. In addition, our survey department provided boundary and topographic surveys for not only the museum and archives building, but also for the larger mall area, including the Farmers’ Market and Visitor Center.
