Tusculum Elementary School

Tennessee Valley Metals recently installed canopies for the new Tusculum Elementary School in Nashville, TN. This project featured a unique double-post designed walkway cover at the schools entrance. The double-post design features two 4″x8″ columns in the front positioned around 6″x8″ drain beams that extend toward the building.

In addition to the entrance walkway cover, we provided two standard post-supported canopies and four rod and clevis overhead supported canopies.

Our canopies were part of the new two-story construction project that was completed by RG Anderson Construction as general contractor.
