Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering
In late 2018, the dedicated home to Vanderbilt University’s Vanderbilt Institute for Surgery and Engineering (VICE) opened with an interactive demonstration of the cross-disciplinary collaborations advancing healthcare techniques that have been developed by the program. VICE 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 VICE, 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.
