Burgeoning student body prompts Southern Polytechnic State University to expand dining facilities

August 17, 2011 |

Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Ga., has introduced new dining facilities for students. A 16,329-sf, two-story dining hall in Hornet Village, located next to new education buildings and residences, combines terracotta-colored bricks, clear glass, and anodized aluminum features to welcome students back to school this fall.

Meeting university sustainability goals, the dining halls achieved LEED Silver by integrating recycled and regional materials, energy-efficient systems, water conservation, and solar screening in the design. Open serving stations comprise most of the dining space, while an executive dining room seating 45 people is located on the lower level. Niles Bolton Associates served as designer.
