Sam Houston State University, College of Osteopathic Medicine


Vaughn is serving as the construction manager-at-risk for the College of Osteopathic Medicine. The medical facility specializes in a distinct form of medicine which provides the benefits of modern medicine and the use of technology, focusing on health promotion and disease prevention. We were required to finish the medical school by December 31, 2019 because the university wanted to open its doors by fall 2020. To do this, the medical facility had to pass the accreditation process which took eight months. The schedule challenge was compounded by the fact that the site was fully wooded and undeveloped. To meet the aggressive schedule, we collaborated in unique ways with the design team by utilizing design-assist services for MEPF, developing a guaranteed maximum price based on schematic design documents, and starting construction from design development drawings. The building includes laboratory spaces, simulation space, gross anatomy labs, active learning classrooms with 360-degree views, and a teaching theater. We worked long hours to complete the educational spaces and simulation space and install all life safety systems as early in construction as possible, so the medical facility could pass the accreditation process.
