When is the right time to bring a new destination to the community?

GEODIS Park is home to the Nashville SC, one of the league’s newest expansion teams. Nestled in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood, its design encompasses the true spirit of Nashville, with an industrial aesthetic that blends seamlessly with the city’s historic architecture.

Design features include a 360-degree canopy, 65-foot-wide shared concourse, and a natural grass playing field.  Seating offers something for everyone with the option of luxury suites and mini suites, club seats, themed premium seating, and a safe standing supporter’s section. With the last row of seats being only 150 feet from the touchline, all fans get a great view of the field.

Building Diversity & Community Empowerment

The collaborative construction team included Mortenson's joint venture partner Messer Construction and associate partners Pinnacle Construction and Business Resource Group. Others involved included a dedicated community outreach and engagement team focused on building a diverse, inclusive workforce. The team also prioritized partnering with local businesses to help strengthen the local economy and maximize opportunities for women and minority-owned businesses throughout the construction process.

Efforts in Workforce Inclusion and Advancement Resulted In:

71 women-owned and minority-owned businesses worked on the project and were awarded $69M in contracts. 10 small businesses were awarded $6.7M in contracts.
DEMOGRAPHICS: workforce hours 48% women + people of color, 76% local  workers
7 college students were sponsored and received internships lasting from 3-5 months.

These programs aren’t about checking boxes. It’s about positively impacting the community and providing equal opportunities to small and diverse businesses. Many of the businesses involved had never participated in a project of this size. To prepare them, the team offered training and apprenticeships to help workers develop skills they could use on future construction projects.

Community involvement and outreach is an important part of each sports construction project. In Nashville, the team worked with two neighborhood elementary schools. At Napier Elementary, the project team tackled much needed gardening and landscaping efforts. They also built a new soccer field and supplied soccer and playground equipment for the students. A highlight for the children at Fall-Hamilton Elementary was having Tempo, the Nashville SC mascot make an appearance at a school fundraiser organized by the project team. Additionally, food and supply drives were organized to support community members in need.

For Mortenson, the GEODIS Park project was about more than building an impressive sports stadium. The goal was to leave a lasting impact on the community long after project completion.
