In partnership with Bon Appétit Management Company, the university's food service provider, a complete renovation of the existing north campus dining facility, Leutner Commons, began this week.
The project is expected to be completed prior to the start of the 2010-2011 academic year. During the renovation, the dining hall is expected to remain fully operational for the duration of fall semester, as well as through spring semester 2010.
According to Beth Nochomovitz, director of auxiliary services, the completed facility renovation will include an expansion of 4,500 square feet achieved through the addition of a glass atrium located on the south facade, and a 4,000 square feet addition to the west of the facility. The additional space will provide students with study space after dining hours. Nochomovitz said the renovation also will better accommodate the large number of students who dine in the Leutner Commons facility, and will maximize overall space flexibility.
Highlights of the project:
This is the second phase of the Leutner Commons project. The first phase, a kitchen improvement, was completed during the summer.
