Project: Vanderbilt Health 100 Oaks

  • Location: Nashville, TN
  • General Contractor: Batten and Shaw
  • Engineer: Envision Advantage, LLC
  • Architect: Gresham Smith and Partners


The 100 Oaks project is an innovated design medical facility. The project is incorporated into an existing structure that has retail stores as part of the complex. It was a goal for Vanderbilt University for the facility to blend in with the community, be a good neighbor with the retail stores and help revive a part of Nashville. The demolition for the project started in November of 2007 on the second floor; the build out process was started t in June of 2008, having approximately 375,000 square feet of build out in 6 months. There are 20 different specialty services for the patients in the renovated structure. The project was completed in late February, 2009.


To do a project of this type in one of the most critical areas here is a challenge in itself. The fact that this was accomplished with no adverse effect on operations is a testament to the skills of everyone involved.
