Nashville SC announced Moody Nolan and Pinnacle Construction as their lead architecture and construction firms, respectively, for their new Antioch training facilities. Both firms are minority owned, which the club noted is part of their effort to support minority-owned local businesses.
“Moody Nolan and Pinnacle Construction are a perfect fit to head up this project with us,” said Nashville SC Owner John Ingram. “They share our vision for a training facility that will be a fantastic hub for the community and a wonderful place for our players to train.”
“We’re excited to have been chosen to design Nashville SC’s training facility,” said Brian Tibbs, Managing Partner and Director of Nashville Operations for Moody Nolan. “Nashville SC has been an amazing partner to our city, and this facility in South Nashville will only deepen the connection. It’s an honor to be selected as the design lead for this facility, an integral part of this and we’re ready to get to work.”
“The opportunity for two established firms of color to partner on the development of the Nashville SC training facility is unprecedented. I can only hope that others in leadership position here in Middle Tennessee are inspired by the progressive steps taken by John Ingram and Mary Cavarra to effectuate material and meaningful economic opportunities in support of minority-owned businesses,” said Michael Carter, Managing Partner for Pinnacle Construction.
The training facilities are currently slated to open in the summer of 2022, a few months after Nashville opens their new 30,000 seat stadium at the Fairgrounds. Their new academy facilities at Currey Ingram academy will complete the trio of construction projects, giving the new club three top-tier facilities as they continue to establish themselves in MLS.
