    Our company looked for an architect with plenty of experience with designing outpatient health care facilities, but we also needed a firm that could grasp the uniqueness of our clinical model and provide us with an innovative space that created the right patient flow and the right patient experience. We are absolutely thrilled with our first center and feel The Gould Turner Group really captured our vision and helped us to bring it to life. From our first meeting, they understood and embraced the essential role our facilities play in our making our clinical model work. GTG really took the time to appreciate what we were trying to accomplish. They were good listeners, responsive, reasonable and innovative. In fact, we are now working with GTG to design our second location and look forward to a very long relationship as we together build centers around the country.

    My working relationship with Gould Turner Group (GTG) has been a rewarding and memorable experience.  Opening a new school, especially a new comprehensive high school, is a challenge to say the least.  However, under the expertise and guidance of GTG, this project was accomplished with great collaboration between GTG and MNPS.

    GTG made this experience successful due to the following procedures that were in place from the beginning to the completion of the Cane Ridge High School project:

    • Regular meetings were held with me, MNPS building and construction staff, contractors and GTG.
    • Revisions were recommended at these meetings and acted upon in  a timely manner.
    • Schedules were adhered to with only minor revisions.
    • Collaboration between all parties working through GTG and me were always open and productive.

    The working relationship and the friendships that were established over a period of a year have been very rewarding to me personally and professionally.  I would recommend GTG as a credible firm that values and understands the importance of listening to the ideas of all of the stakeholders involved in a building project.

    Gould Turner has served as architect for a number of Metropolitan Nashville Public School projects.  The most recent is Cane Ridge High School, which opened in 2008.  Cane Ridge High School is a state-of-art facility of approximately 310,000 square feet, successfully designed to serve a student body of approximately 2000.  The plan was developed to serve separate and distinct academies, from both Academic and Community & Technical Education disciplines.

    In all of our experiences working with the Gould Turner Group, we have found them to be very responsive to, not only the building program needs, but also budget and schedule concerns.  They are excellent listeners and develop designs that are creative, efficient, and responsible to the educational programs proposed.  Their projects have also met other critical criteria by being on schedule and within budget.

    MNPS will surely work with the Gould Turner Group again and recommend their services without reservation.

    "I think it's one of the premier designs in the nation," said Cheryl Wilson, Rapides Regional Medical Center chief operating officer. "I don't think you're going to find anything that brings together the youth of children and the warmness of mothers, like this design does. We tried to make it warm and fun -- and I think we succeeded."

    I have worked with Gould Turner Group (GTG) on several projects at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, including an OR renovation, build-out of a floor in our Critical Care Tower, and renovation at our outpatient center in Cool Springs.

    Gould Turner Group has been very responsive and have met or exceeded our expectations of deliverables on this work. Working with GTG has proven to be an excellent decision as many of our staff have responded very positively to their work.

    VUMC is now scheduling a time to meet with GTG leadership about several future project at Vanderbilt University Hospital. From all of my experiences with GTG, I'd highly recommend them for healthcare projects.
