William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower - Nashville, Tennessee

The William R. Snodgrass Tennessee Tower, built in 1970, is Nashville’s third tallest structure rising 452’ above city streets. Kline Swinney Associates was selected to provide design and construction documents for repairing and cleaning the travertine façade of this 30+ story building, to help identify and remediate building skin leaks, and to completely renovate the 30th floor rooftop plaza. A complete exterior inspection was accomplished by our engineering consultants who rappelled from the roof of the building and inspected all travertine veneer, windows, caulk, joints, etc. to determine locations of leaks and stone damage. We prepared core samples of the roof plaza deck and roofing and pulled selected windows to confirm the location and cause of the leaks. The exterior travertine stone envelope was repaired, then it and the 4th floor plaza exterior walls were completely cleaned and re-caulked. The existing rooftop garden, plaza, and railings were removed and a new green roof garden and plaza installed, along with new pavers, roof membrane, and a lighted handrail and steel cable system that circles the perimeter of the 30th floor.

It was the responsibility of Kline Swinney Associates' Project Manager to inspect and document these repairs. This required that he ride a suspended work stage the full height of the building on all faces of the tower and climb scaffolding to inspect areas not accessible from the suspended work stage. Those inspections allowed to quantify and document the locations of all repairs.
