Located in one of the more affluent suburbs of Nashville, the Green Hills Mall is host to many high-end retailers and restaurants with Dillard’s being one of the anchors. This Dillard’s was built to replace the existing Dillard’s to provide additional square footage and ease parking constraints by adding three levels of parking. Sure Steel was contracted by CDI Contractors to supply and install the structural steel on this 184,000 SqFt, two-story retail store above the parking deck. Due to the existing operations of the mall, vehicle and pedestrian traffic limited the amount of lay down and site access available to set steel. Sure Steel worked hand-in-hand with CDI’s management team to develop an efficient plan that would allow the most access for mall patrons. During the construction of the post-tension concrete, Sure Steel worked to assemble roof kits (pre-assembled panels of joist and deck) to help reduce the overall construction schedule. Just-in-time deliveries were required for main column and beam members, reducing the need for lay down. Our crews installed the nearly 1,250 tons ahead of schedule and without a lost-time incident.
