Big River Engineering and Manufacturing
Big River Engineering and Manufacturing provides complex and high-end medical device manufacturing services. The project brought new life to this previously vacant building, as well as new business to Downtown Memphis. Originally constructed as an auto transmission repair shop in the 1950's, and later serving as stables for the mounted division of the police department, the building was completely gutted and restored in 2009 with an eye towards sustainable design and construction. Big River is LEED® Silver – the second building in Memphis and the third in Shelby County to receive this recognition. The project was honored by the USGBC for making green design a key component of its economic and environmental sustainability efforts.
