LP Field

LP FieldSince 1999, more than 68,000 Titans fans have filed into LP Field each game to cheer on Nashville’s beloved NFL team. From the hot days of late August to the cold, rainy afternoons of December, LP Field is Middle Tennessee’s most popular attraction on most Sundays at noon.

Completed in 1999, the stadium was originally named Adelphia Coliseum, and later renamed The Coliseum in 2002. In 2006, Nashville-based Louisiana-Pacific Corp. purchased the naming rights, changing the name to LP Field. Louisiana-Pacific is a leading manufacturer and distributor of building products.

DES has provided cooling services inside the 68,798-seat stadium since we began operations in 2003. Prior to that time, the stadium relied on the old Nashville Thermal Transfer Corporation for cooling services.

The stadium also plays host to more than 100 other events every year, including the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl, Tennessee State University home football games, Olympic soccer qualifying games, the CMA Music Festival, business meetings and receptions.

Dempsey Henderson, the facility manager at LP Field, has worked at the stadium since its opening in 1999, and has been very satisfied with the service DES has provided.

Henderson explained the importance of cooling in a facility like LP Field. “The stadium is more than just a field and concession stands. We have more than 175 suites, two club areas, media facilities, several administrative offices, a ticket office and the concession areas, which also use DES’ services for refrigeration.”

“DES is also very good about meeting with us to discuss ways to improve the service they provide. We’ve met several times to discuss new innovations, and they installed an in-house metering service that’s more efficient.”

LP Field doesn’t have a large-scale backup system for cooling, which means the service that DES provides is vital for day-to-day operations at the stadium.
