the skyline of downtown Nashville, Tennessee. In addition to being a NCAA Division I level training facility, this 24-acre community sports park includes baseball, softball and soccer/track field, a basketball court, and walking track.

For this high profile project, Stansell was the electrical contractor of choice. Stansell was part of a group that participated in careful coordination of the design and installation of the electrical systems, sports lighting systems, audio systems, and electrical life safety systems. It was imperative that all trades communicated and that work was completed accurately and on time for opening ceremonies.


The E. S. Rose Park & Sports Complex is a revolutionary shared facilities concept combining resources from Metro Parks & Recreation and Belmont University.
