MBA Airnasium and Campground

J&S Construction has entered its first partnership with Montgomery Bell Academy (MBA), an all-boys school located off Harding Road in Nashville, Tenn. J&S Construction has been contracted to build a new 7,200 square-foot, open-air gymnasium and campground at the school’s Long Mountain property in McMinnville, just 90 minutes from the main campus.

The 200 acres of pristine land sets on a beautiful mountain top and includes an observatory, playing fields, disc golf course, lakes, hiking trails, and high and low ropes courses.

The new facility will include a kitchenette, stone fireplace, storage room, projection screen, and basketball/volleyball court; and the campground will consist of eight yurts (circular canvas tents on concrete foundations), a bathhouse, and three pairs of bunkhouses that will be connected with wood decking.

The airnasium will be a slab-on-grade structure and will primarily consist of glulam and wood timbers. The mezzanine in the structure will be wood framed with V-grooved Hardie® siding. The bathhouse and bunkhouses will be positioned on concrete footers with CMU skirting.

Most of the campground will overlook a beautiful lake and the observatory.

J&S Construction began work on the four-month contract the first week
of July.

MBA, the only all-boys school in Middle Tennessee, was founded in 1867. MBA’s
long history is intricately woven into a vision and mission of developing
“Gentlemen, Scholars, Athletes,” and keeping current in its world. For more information, visit MBA’s website at
