In Ten­nessee, Blue­Cross BlueShield traces their roots back to 1945, when Roy McDon­ald cre­ated the Ten­nessee Hos­pi­tal Ser­vice Asso­ci­a­tion. Blue­Cross BlueShield of Ten­nessee is part of the Blue­Cross BlueShield Asso­ci­a­tion – a col­lec­tive of 38 health insur­ances orga­ni­za­tions across the coun­try.

The Cameron Hill Campus over­looks down­town Chat­tanooga and unites employ­ees from ten city loca­tions. Five build­ings radi­ate out­ward from the crest of the hill, encir­cling a cen­tral public plaza like indi­vid­u­als coming together as a com­mu­nity. The LEED Gold cer­ti­fied head­quar­ters for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Ten­nessee is a 1 mil­lion square foot campus, offer­ing stun­ning views of down­town Chat­tanooga. As the nation’s second largest LEED Gold accred­ited cor­po­rate campus, it demon­strates how a trans­for­ma­tive project of this scale can attain a high level of sus­tain­abil­ity and become a model for future devel­op­ment in its com­mu­nity.

A spine of sky­bridges and canopied walk­ways pro­vide easy move­ment between build­ings. A cen­tral glass-canopied plaza cre­ates a major gath­er­ing place where the Selux MTR Column was selected to illu­mi­nate these high traf­fic spaces.
