When Nashville built its new stadium for the Tennessee Titans, the former headquarters of the Nashville Bridge Company were spared demolition. Built in 1908, with additions made to the 5,000 square foot building in 1924 and 1965, the compound was modernized by Hastings Architecture Associates as part of the Nashville Riverfront Master Plan. Renovations were recently completed, including a newly-built modern wing, and has been re-dubbed The Bridge Building.

The adaptive reuse required significant modifications to reflect sustainability concerns, which have resulted in a 46 percent decrease in annual energy costs, including solar hot water, a ground source heat pump, automated electrical monitoring, LED illumination, and smart operable windows.
