We're going to broadway.

Located within the mixed-use complex, Fifth + Broadway and on the busiest street in Nashville, Layton completed a full build out of Alliance Bernstein’s (AB) corporate headquarters. This project required thoughtful coordination between our team, AB, and the base builder, as it was full of complexities and unique circumstances. We built-out the top eight floors of the 24-story structure concurrently with the construction of the shell of the building.

A build-out at the top.

Due to Covid complications and the complexity of the project in general, Layton’s coordination with the base-building contractor began early. We conducted multiple constructability reviews, developed step-by-step plans for coordination with the base-building contractor and structural engineer, and extensively planned for the added difficulty of a top floor, multi-level build-out on a tight site.

Taking flight at night

The data-heavy nature of AB’s business required a robust cooling system that could go nowhere else but the roof. To safely maneuver the chiller to the roof, the Layton team coordinated with both building and city officials to place it via helicopter. This required not only a comprehensive delivery plan but also completely closing Broadway during the low-level helicopter flight in the middle of the night.
