6 Medical Construction & Design | M AY/ J U N E 2018 | MCDM AG.COM Projects IN BRIEF A former bowling alley in Nashville, Tennessee was recently converted into a 27,500-square-foot outpatient dialysis clinic for Vanderbilt Health. The project team included Oman-Gibson Associates, Southeast Venture, Fulmer Engineering and Olympian Construction. Gresham, Smith and Partners has been selected by Saint Thomas Health, a member of Ascension Health, to provide architecture, interior design and engineering services for a vertical patient tower and surgery expansion project at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The projects are part of a larger expansion plan. Vanderbilt Health The new Jackson Le Bonheur Children's Outpatient Center in Tennessee recently held its grand opening ceremony and ribbon cutting. The 30,000-square-foot facility features 20 exam rooms and provides a variety of diagnostic services. Subspecialty clinics include cardiology, endocrinology, gastroenter- ology, general surgery, genetics, nephrology, neurology, pulmonology and urology. The project team included brg3s Architects, Bottletree Design Group and Fisher Construction. The site is surrounded by suburban homes, big box retailers and car dealer- ships, making it a necessity for the outpatient center to stand out. Making use of the vernacular gable-roof form, cementitious fi ber panels and translucent glaz- ing, a design was composed that would heighten the feeling of comfort to the initial patient approach. The apex of the gable defi nes the main gallery and waiting function, which acts as the structure's spine separat- ing the administrative and clinical areas. On the clinic side, 26 exam rooms are organized along three color- coded corridors, creating a simple circulation path from the gallery and check-in to the exam rooms. brg3s collaborated early on with artist Tylur French to commission installations that would function spe- cifi cally within the space, creating a seamless balance between art and architecture. Stepping inside, the visitor is greeted by an open, two-story gallery and waiting room, blanketed with diff used natural light and dappled with splashes of color within the recessed waiting areas. Suspended from the ceiling are fl ocks of whimsi- cal avian mobiles, some of French's custom creations. PEDIATRIC Striking Seamless Balance Between Art, Architecture at New Children's Facility Meridian has purchased a site in Modesto, Califor- nia that consists of a vacant 39,204-square-foot parcel. The fi rm plans to build an 11,250-square-foot OSHPD3 ambulatory outpatient facility. The building is being designed by Harriman Kinyon Architects and constructed by H2 Builders. The new facility is expected to be completed in 2019. A topping out ceremony was recently held for the Winter Park Memorial Hospital Nicholson Pavilion, located in Winter Park, Florida, which will add 140 all-private rooms and a new lobby when it opens next year. The project team includes Brasfi eld & Gorrie and RLF Arc hitects. completed & upcoming
