NASHVILLE, Tenn., March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Opened in 2013, Nashville’s Music City Center is already soaking up the sounds and sights of one of America’s greatest music cities. Above concertgoers’ heads and the dulcet tones of bluegrass, however, something just as exciting is keeping them dry. Designed to mimic the beautiful rolling hills of Tennessee, the center is an architectural marvel – made possible by the latest innovations in geotextiles.

While the casual visitor to the Nashville Music City Center may only notice a gorgeous rooftop park, in actuality there is much more going on. Most roof systems incorporate a complicated network located above the waterproofing membrane and its substrate, including a root barrier, drain and filter layer, water retention layer, slope stabilization and root reinforcement layer, and of course, soil media and plants.

In addition to manicured gardens, modern construction projects require effective embankment filtration and drainage. Before the blueprints leave the drawing board, it must also include rigorous performance testing to evaluate filtration and permeability using the proposed geotextile materials and actual soils from the project site. This information is critical when selecting a geotextile – perhaps the most important decision a contractor or architect can make. Making this more difficult are the wide variety of geomembranes and geosynthetics available on the market today, suitable to applications ranging from drains for ground maintenance, pavement applications, landscaping, cofferdams, construction dewatering, construction access roads, inverted filters, and the simple sandbag.
