During a recent project at BNA, Garver had the opportunity to serve as a subconsultant to the smaller, Nashville-based construction firm, Blakely Construction Services on a design-build project. Blakely excelled in its leadership and innovation and paired this with Garver’s developed knowledge and familiarity with the airport. Garver has also worked with a number of other small businesses at BNA, assisting in geotechnical investigations, surveying, cost estimating, and design.
That’s not the only award Garver’s Tennessee Aviation Team has won for its work at BNA. Garver’s role in a geothermal cooling system converted from an old rock quarry earned the Grand Award in the Water Services category during the ACEC of Tennessee’s Engineering Excellence Awards banquet last week. Garver designed a pipeline corridor and worked with the airport to schedule construction phasing in helping the airport turn the quarry into the largest geothermal cooling system of its kind in North America.
