CISAT Campus Dining Hall

James Madison University, Harrisonburg, Virginia

This two-story dining facility accommodates both undergraduate students for daily dining and executive event dining functions for the university. The first floor includes a central two-story, terrazzo “rotunda” lobby, as well as the main student dining area, which includes multiple food venues, associated back-of-house kitchen services (receiving, food preparation, storage, and cleaning spaces), and a small convenience store. The second floor includes a carpeted and wood base upper lobby in the “rotunda”; an Executive Dining Room that features a fireplace; an Executive Dining Pantry for food preparation and staging, with associated storage spaces; and an outdoor balcony with views to the south for executive event functions. The Executive Dining Room and balcony also serve the community as a venue for parties and receptions. This facility earned LEED Gold in 2010, which was a first for the campus.
