MMC The Fountains


Owner: Murfreesboro Medical Clinic (MMC)
 Fountains at Gateway, 1430 Medical Center Parkway, Murfreesboro TN
Project Scope: Complete tenant build-out

Fountains at Gateway, a vibrant 31-acre corporate office campus and retail center located in Murfreesboro, is home to Murfreesboro Medical Clinic’s newest facility—a growing medical spa, dermatology and plastic surgery practice. Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Albert Kattine and board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brad Medling now provide a high level of service and amenities to patients throughout Middle Tennessee. The brand, new 17,000-square-foot space includes 6,000 square feet on the first floor and 11,000-square feet on the second floor.

Dow Smith Company worked with MMC’s designers to provide the high-end interior build-out of this Class A space. The interior build-out included multiple lobbies for Dr. Kattine and Dr. Medling, treatment rooms, exam rooms, a relaxation room, nurses stations, meeting rooms, a break room, and a boutique retail space.

One of the most interesting features of this project is the U Medi Spa, the only dermatologist-owned and operated spa in Murfreesboro. The spa specializes in medically supervised, state-of-the-art skin rejuvenation procedures and spa services, such as facials, massages, manicures, laser hair removal, Coolsculpting and wrinkle reduction treatments. The retail boutique offers gifts as well as a full line of skin care products and high quality fashions. The space required a light and airy open feeling that projects tranquility and calmness. A special stone wall feature and other high-end touches make this medical practice feel more like an oasis than a doctor’s office.

The build-out at The Fountains was extremely challenging. To begin with, the project went through several rounds of value engineering to come up with a plan that was not only financially viable, but could be completed within schedule. Our team, led by Project Manager Joey Rhyne, worked diligently with MMC and their architect to fine tune the plans to make the project feasible.

Dow Smith delivers such an exceptional product and are easy to work with. Because we have had such a good experience with them, they have an understanding of what we like, what we want, and what we are looking for in our facilities.
