Vaughn is serving as the construction manager-at-risk for the new Texas A&M Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory (TVMDL) facility, which relocates the university's program in Amarillo to the West Texas A&M University campus. The new facility enables TVMDL to train the next generation of veterinary diagnosticians in the Texas panhandle. The one-story facility includes highly technical spaces, such as biosafety level (BSL)-2 and BSL-3 laboratories and BSL-2 necropsy. The facility is designed with flexibility to permit growth with emerging technologies. The building also contains associated support spaces, such as waste sterilization, glassware washing, incinerator decontamination systems, carcass disposal, a mechanical penthouse, offices and meeting rooms, and an employee wellness/fitness center.

Vaughn is also serving as the construction manager-at-risk for the new Veterinary Education  Research  and Outreach Center (VERO) facility  a regional veterinary teaching and research center attached to the TVMDL facility. The VERO facility prepares the future workforce to meet the needs for high-quality veterinary medical services and supports the massive livestock industries in the Texas panhandle region. The new  two-story building features biosafety level (BSL)-2 research laboratories and BSL-2 teaching laboratories. This new facility also includes necessary associated support spaces such as waste sterilization, glassware washing, cooler and freezer storage areas, administrative/staff/support offices, separate client and employee/guest entrances, conference and meeting spaces, and break rooms. The buildings are being constructed concurrently.
