Eckman Construction is providing full design/build services to complete construction of a dining commons facility in partnership with Banwell Architects.
The 12,000 sf two-story open-space addition will connect to the recently completed Athletic & Wellness Center, which Eckman also provided design-build services for and completed in 2019.
Features include a 300+-seat dining area, an open servery with food stations, a pizza oven, a commercial kitchen that will house a wide range of commercial cooking equipment, and an auxiliary dish room.
Exposed heavy timber trusses will allow the structure to clear span the entire dining space and provide a vaulted ceiling. Additional dormer windows and a copula will allow natural light to reach deep into The Commons.
Construction is currently underway.
