McDaniel College | Englar Dining Hall Renovation
Top-to-bottom interior improvements to the aging Englar Dining Hall were performed on McDaniel College’s active higher-ed academic campus. Work included raising the ceiling height and creating an open-grid up-lit ceiling involving 30 different types of lights. A complex patterned tile floor, energy-efficient lighting, electronic menu boards, a consolidated beverage line and a built-in pantry were also involved. Custom seating areas included intimate café-style booths, high-top tables, bench seating, and overstuffed chairs with tablet-style tops. Work included masonry repairs, roof repairs at new penetrations, joint sealants, doors, frames, hardware, aluminum storefront windows, plumbing, HVAC, and electrical work. This 440-seat dining hall renovation was executed on an accelerated 9 week schedule—on-time and on budget.
