Accel successfully executed the phased construction of a 4,460sf addition to the student store to expand the food court and relocate the existing drive-thru lane. The addition was steel framed with masonry exterior closure on a concrete slab foundation. Supporting facilities included all required utilities, communications and alarms, power, pavement, curb and gutter, sidewalks, storm drainage, and landscaping. Interior construction was designed specifically for food service facility operation.
The addition accommodated two existing food vendors and created space for three new vendors. The existing 5,380sf food court seating area was renovated, and the existing food preparation space was vacated and converted to expand the food court seating area and circulation. The existing toilet heads were renovated and the existing NEX store remained in operation during construction.
