Grand Hyatt Nashville

The glass-clad 25-story Grand Hyatt Nashville, completed in 2020, will serve as host hotel for the National Glass Association’s 2022 Building Envelope Contractors Conference and Glass Processing Automation Days, March 27-30. The project was designed by HKS Architects and features high-performance low-e coated insulating glass from Viracon—VRE1-65 and VNE13-63. Physical Security LLC was the glazing contractor.  

“The project schedule was already tough enough, but we managed this during the COVID-19 pandemic,” says Tyler Wright, area project manager for Physical Security. “In order to get ahead and set curtain wall units, we were working 4 floors at a time [with] a total of 50 on-site employees. … After working a few kinks out, we were turning around entire floors in four days’ time.”
