What Makes BNA’s Terminal Garage 1 So Green?

BNA’s Terminal Garage 1, which opens June 18, was designed and built utilizing Parksmart℠, the world’s only rating system designed to advance sustainable mobility through smarter parking structure design and operation.

“Green” components of Terminal Garage 1 include:

  • recycling receptacles
  • electric vehicle charging stations
  • tire inflation station
  • energy efficient lighting programmed to dim when no motion is detected
  • a 50,000-gallon cistern for rainwater harvesting and landscape irrigation
  • an emphasis on regional labor and regionally sourced materials
  • durable design
  • and more.

Terminal Garage 2 earned Parksmart Bronze certification in August 2019, making it one of only 35 parking structures in the world and the first in Tennessee to earn this distinction. BNA anticipates receiving Parksmart certification for Terminal Garage 1 in the coming months.

BNA has a longstanding commitment to sustainability, and balancing the triple bottom of line and people, planet and profit is a guiding principle of BNA Vision.
