Vanderbilt University E. Bronson Ingram College

Completed for the Fall 2018 semester, E. Bronson Ingram College is a 205,000-square-foot facility that houses 350 students, faculty advisors and graduate students. Residents have on-site access to a shared dining room, study lounges, social spaces and formal & informal outdoor green spaces. The design features intricate masonry work and elements from late 19th and 20th century architecture. The authentic collegiate gothic style and internal courtyards help create an area for faculty and college students to interact as part of a residential community. 

BIM coordination across trades was critical to the success of this project. R.C. Mathews utilized structural and architectural BIM models alongside our shop drawings to correctly align the concrete and steel structures. BIM was also paramount to the success across the MEP trades as it allowed a lot of the material brought in to be prefabricated off site.
