After the historic flood in Nashville in May of 2010, D.F. Chase, Inc. was hired to lead the reconstruction of the nation’s largest non-gaming hotel and resort and one of Nashville’s most prominent landmarks. In just five months, D.F. Chase completed this $100 million, 800,000 square foot flood restoration project. D.F. Chase managed approximately 650 crew members seven days a week in 12- to 14-hour shifts. The restoration areas included the Cascades lobby, restaurant and bars; the Garden Atrium’s two restaurants; the 117 damaged guest rooms, the ground floor exhibit space and its supporting IT infrastructure, as well as a large conference breakout room and its supporting offices. Renovation to 600 guest rooms was also done during this time. Gaylord Opryland Resort reopened its doors on time and on budget.
