Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering

Nashville, Tennessee

In late 2018, the dedicated home to Vanderbilt University’s Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VISE) opened with an interactive demonstration of the cross-disciplinary collaborations advancing healthcare techniques that have been developed by the program. VISE is a collaboration of engineering professors, physicians, and students in engineering and medicine who impact healthcare and surgical innovation through engineering. The 7,000 SF suite includes a mock operating room and large work space for research and testing.

In renovating the space to prepare for VISE, SSR designed a chilled beam HVAC system; replaced AHUs, chilled water pumps, and exhaust fans; installed a new hot water conversion system and electrical panels; and relocated domestic water, waste, and vent risers.

The technology scope of work included structured cabling, network and telephone system hardware, public address/music system, intercom, security, surveillance, personnel and asset tracking, MATV/SATV, time clocks, and master clock.

This project is LEED Gold® certified.
