Renovation of the servery within Warren Towers a Freshman Dormitory housing 1800 students was carried out on a fast-track summer schedule. Six distinct areas, comprised of roughly 5,700SF, were constructed to service; Late Night, Gluten Free, Asian, Grill, Deli, and Dessert. Challenges included procurement of food service equipment and hoods, which were long lead items, and required tracking and recovery schedules as the precise power, and plumbing requirements for the equipment would not support any last minute substitutions. All equipment was live loaded into the building, early mornings and weekends when traffic on Commonwealth Avenue was lightest. Work was turned over on time for incoming Freshman.
