16,000 sq.ft. of renoved space into dynamic, attractive, and sustainable facility.

Five culinary platforms have replaced the cafeteria-style serving area. Platforms include Harvest Bakery, Tomato St. Grill, Seasonality featuring entree's with seasonal and local foods, Saucey hosting hand-crafted pizzas and pasta, and Fresh Inspirations serving hand-tossed salads and carved meats.

Expanded and enhanced seating. We've converted the compartmentalized seating rooms into large, open dining areas by removing partition walls and creating a two-story space in the public market area with an opening in the second floor.

Additional enhancements:

  • Mechanical system improvements.
  • Lighting energy use reduction.
  • Renewable energy.
  • Non-chemical water softening.
  • Display boards, electronic displays, and equipment monitoring devices.
  • Solar heat recovery system with high-efficiency boilers and pumps.
  • Lighting reduction and controls integration.
  • Utilization of recycled materials.

Face coverings are strongly recommended but not required.
