Fifth & Broadway – Nashville

General Contractor: Skanska
Location: Nashville, TN

By Juliette Bradley

“The General Contractor, Skanska, provided preconstruction and construction management services on the $402 million Fifth + Broadway project and partnered with American Direct to provide a Dormakaba hardware package to pair with the LATCH electronic access control system designated for the job.”


“…The intersection of Fifth and Broadway streets is one of the busiest in the state of Tennessee and life went on right through construction. COVID-19 added a unique set of circumstances as well, including dating vertical transportation limitations, wellness checks and temperature checks at the gates plus more frequent hand sanitizing and portable toilet cleanings”


“…Elpers worked with the city’s public works department to determine the most effective logistics plan. The residential tower features the LATCH electronic access control system and Blue Tooth technology. American Direct Regional Sales Manager Eric Van Scoy began working with the construction team, the architect and the design team early on and finalized an openings package that aligned with the budget and provided quality functionality.”

“American Direct provided pre-construction consulting by offering value pricing and alternate hardware to reduce costs, plus they developed the key schedule for the system.” -Jeff Elpers Skanska Project Executive
