Project Description

Quandel was hired to construct the South Dining Hall addition for Kutztown University. Quandel provided access roads, pedestrian walkways, storm drainage, landscaping and associated site improvements for a 10,000 sq. ft. addition housing a new food court. The food court included renovations to the existing facility to install food preparation equipment, specialty serving areas and customer seating.

Renovation work included temporary shoring of the second floor to remove existing bearing walls and construct a new framing system within space requirements conducive to the new facility use. Quandel’’s specialized knowledge of temporary shoring design and construction helped to minimize the impact to student services during existing dining hall operations. The new addition is a focal point to the south campus and is a welcomed after-hours gathering spot for students.
