Wellwood Cafeteria

Location:  Manlius, NY

Completed:  Summer 2021

Program:  Cafeteria

Construction Type:  Renovation and Addition

The existing cafeteria and kitchen were located in the basement of Wellwood. The kitchen and serving lines were undersized and difficult to navigate between equipment.  One of the goals of the Wellwood Renovation and Addition project was to move the cafeteria out of the basement and construct a new centrally located space.  The Cafeteria programming included seating for over 230, two serving lines, an expanded production kitchen and a snack shack.  The Cafeteria was designed with large windows for plenty of daylight with motorized shades which was lacking in the existing cafeteria in the basement as well as sound absorbing ceilings.  The serving line and snack shack were strategically located so they are visible from the seating area improving student supervision.  The Cafeteria also featured a recessed projection screen and projector to allow for large group and/ or community meetings.
