Dining renovation with complex utilities coordination, custom carpentry, and special food service packages.

Dougherty Hall dining facilities were renovated and expanded to offer full-service dining with seating and other amenities. Flatiron performed the construction project over the summer academic break.

The project included expansion of an existing prep kitchen into a full-service kitchen with upgraded equipment, a pizza oven, and an espresso bar, custom millwork wall panels and sliding doors, ceramic and stone wall tiles, and a special food service package of counters, serving, and storage fixtures. Complex coordination was performed for new kitchen utilities. Flatiron craftsmen built a floating ceiling and uncovered a long-hidden mural during construction that was uncovered and repurposed as a permanent artwork in the new space.
