Completely renovate the All Campus Dining Center to enhance enrollment and project an image consistent with that of the college as a whole.
Greatest challenges were schedule and budget.
We replaced the initial food service consultant at the completion of the design development phase in August, 2016. Construction documents had to be completed by December, 2016 for an award in early 2017 so critical path items would be ready for installation during a three month construction timeframe ending August 15, 2017.
Reuse of existing equipment was maximized to contain the budget.
Right-size elements of the design to support a student population of 2400.
Prepare a critical path schedule and work with all team members to maintain schedule.
Prompt review of shop drawings was key to releasing custom fabrication on schedule.
Survey and inventory existing equipment. Tag items for reuse as directed by the Owner.
Work with the Owner and construction team to make change order requests go away.
The project was completed on time and on budget and received great reviews by students, faculty and staff. Vassar College now has a dining facility everyone can be proud of, one that’s consistent with the college’s mission for dining services and one that achieves high levels of student satisfaction.
