Auburn University Case Study: A Timely Turnaround
The Village dining hall of Auburn University was scheduled for an update with an ambitious turnaround time of only 8 months. It is one of two major dining halls for the university, which teaches and feeds about 30,000 students each year.
The goal for the renovated dining hall was a setup that allowed moving students through quickly and efficiently while offering variety and custom food choices.
Challenges faced included: congestion where serving lines converged and working around a structural column that bottlenecked foot traffic. At the same time, the team envisioned creating a comfortable and welcoming space where students want to gather and spend time in.
Through expert consultation and creative, custom craftsmanship, Vollrath delivered a foodservice experience that is fresh, forward-thinking, and highly functional.
