Following is a sample project gallery of both Compass Partners projects and projects that were overseen by members of the Compass team. In every case, our professionals brought a level of expertise and leadership to the table to ensure that the final deliverable exceeded the owner's expectations, and that communication between the expanded development team was fluid and consistent.
The Tennessee State Museum in Nashville, TN
Limestone pillars, white oak beams and high glass walls will be featured prominently around the 137,000-square-foot building, which will also feature a 250-seat digital learning center, a children's educational suite, and a grand entrance hall that could serve as an event space. And that's just the bottom floor. The second floor will house the lion's share of the museum's collections, which range in subject matter from a set of mastodon bones to Civil War battle flags. As it is designed now, museum-goers will be able to take a walk through the history of Tennessee like never before, moving from the geological formation of the area thousands of years ago to the first contact between indigenous Americans and Europeans up to the present day.
