Dining Hall Renovation

Pollock Dining Commons at Penn State University was a 26,500 SF renovation including an upgrade to four of their existing dining areas with new contemporary finishes, new food service equipment, new mechanical systems, and a new sprinkler system. Upgrades were made to the existing kitchen and walk-in refrigeration units. These renovations transformed the dining facilities from the traditional cafeteria-style into a more modern café/lounge environment where students can relax and enjoy their meals.

Upgrades to the existing building envelope included the replacement of the second-floor curtain wall system. A new entry canopy was added to provide a more focal entry gateway.
