New Nashville U.S. Courthouse
Fred D. Thompson U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building
In Sep. 2018, the U.S. General Services Administration broke ground on the new Fred D. Thompson U.S. Courthouse and Federal Building in Nashville, Tennessee. The new courthouse will provide eight courtrooms and 11 judges’ chambers. In addition to the U.S. District Court, the new facility will provide workspace for the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, the U.S. Marshals Service, the U.S. Probation and Pretrial Services System, the U.S. Attorney’s Office, GSA and local senatorial staff offices.
The project is currently in the final design phase, and construction is well underway on early work packages.
Crews have installed 95 percent of the facility’s footing and foundation system, which is anticipated to be complete by July 2019. The construction is divided into six sequences with steel erection of sequences A and B complete and sequence C at 40 percent. Metal decking and concrete slabs are nearing completion on sequences A and B and is starting on sequence C. The casting of the precast panels is well underway, with installation anticipated to begin in August.
