Project Scope

Bass Pro Shops, America’s most popular outdoor store, contracted with Graycor Construction Com-pany for the restoration of its 135,000-square-foot anchor retail location in Opry Mills Shopping Center, Nashville, Tenn. Authorities and mall owners closed the mall in May 2010 after torrential storms and flooding of the Cumber-land River devastated the city.

Bass Pro Shops secured a permit in June 2010 to begin repairs. Graycor Construction Company Inc., a long-time trusted construction partner for Bass Pro Shops, quickly mobilized to Nashville the subcontractor teams and resources from a nearby project recently completed for Volk-swagen in Chattanooga to initiate the project.

“Graycor Construction has successfully and efficiently managed the construction of a number of new retail locations for Bass (Pro Shops),” said Steve Callendar, project manager, Bass Pro Shops. “Once plans were finalized to reopen the Nashville store, we were confident they’d be the best partner for the job, delivering quality work in a timely fashion to help us reopen as quickly as possible.”

Bass Pro Shops retail stores are award-winning and rated top tourist destinations for their outstanding concepts and designs, which combines museum, art gallery, aquarium, outdoor education, conservation, and entertainment elements unique to the region so that no two stores are alike. In the past couple of years, Graycor Construction has built and/or renovated four Bass Pro Shops retail locations na-tionwide, including stores in Portage, Ind.; Bolingbrook, Ill.; Spanish Fort, Ala.; and now Nashville, Tenn.

Graycor Construction had the Nashville store rehabilitated and ready to turn over to the retailer in just two short months after the area experienced significant flood and storm damage.
