Warren and Moore Residential Colleges at Vanderbilt University

Designed to replace six existing residence halls, these two new buildings include a centrally located student center, underground parking, and mechanical spaces. Sustainability was a focus as more than 75 percent of the 21,000 tons of debris removed from the site was recycled. The buildings were constructed with sustainable materials, including a 75-year roof and high-performance glass, and incorporate green elements such as low-flow sinks and toilets, low-mercury lighting, low-flow, adjustable-pressure showers, and individually controlled thermostats.

Construction of student housing project at Vanderbilt University finishes ahead of schedule

The new Warren and Moore residential colleges at Vanderbilt University, which replaced six outdated residence halls on campus, were completed 10 weeks ahead of Brasfield & Gorrie's original project schedule.

"This project was under budget and ahead of schedule. The project team, both project management side and construction side, always did their best to exceed the expectations of the University. I very much enjoyed working with this team and hope to have the opportunity again in the future. Thank you."
