Belmont Bruin Hills is a residence-hall project located on the campus of Belmont University, a private liberal arts university in Nashville, Tennessee. Phase 1A of the project was designed and built with an accelerated construction schedule of 10 months. Construction began before the final design was complete. The project consisted of three levels of underground parking (180,615 square feet) and five floors of living quarters with 70 suites (112,058 square feet). Contract amount was $3,348,685 with the project completed in 2012.
The residence hall is one of the first in the state of Tennessee with LED lighting fixtures. The building boasts a sophisticated lighting control system with occupancy sensors throughout to conserve energy. The building also provides Wi-Fi throughout its interior with capabilities to provide Internet service on the communal lawn, as well as an outdoor green-roof for students to use while studying. Enterprise Solutions performed all the work except for lightning protection, which was subcontracted. A prefab operation was set up onsite to provide wiring devices and low voltage rough-ins for each suite. Enterprise Solutions was also responsible for engineering and installing new 15-kV underground and utility lines that feed the section of campus surrounding Belmont Bruin Hills Phase 1A and 1B.
