Vanderbilt University Medical Center Operating Room Renovations

Vanderbilt University Medical Center Operating Room Renovations

Nashville, TN


  • Assignment: Construction Manager
  • Architect: Gould Turner Group
  • Mechanical Engineer: Smith Seckman Reid 


This project consisted of phased renovations to operating rooms on the third floor of both Vanderbilt University Hospital and Medical Center East. Full demolition of existing rooms provided new isolation panels, booms, lights, diffusers and finishes.


  • Our project team coordinated with Vanderbilt University Medical Center to take 2-3 operating rooms off-line at a time to renovate in a 9-week period, minimizing disruptions to surgery operations.
  • Messer and all subcontractors performed more than 544 work days with Zero Injury. This safety statistic also includes work on Saturdays and Sundays to meet the tough schedule.
  • For better quality control, Messer assigned craft that were responsible for full-time infection control monitoring.
