Miami University Western Campus Dining
Heapy Engineering is designing the Mechanical-Electrical systems for the new 46,000 SF Western Dining Hall and will feature distinct station-style eateries including a tea house, international cuisine, vegetarian options, and a new on-site convenience store.
The marche-style dining layout will house a variety of tables, booths, counter seating and high-tops. The south end of the building will provide outdoor seating and space for banquet seating, catering and special functions.
Sustainable features include a rooftop rain garden, on-site storm water retention and filtration, and LED downlighting. Exterior finishes, specifically Indiana limestone and western red cedar, flow into the building’s interior to blur the lines between the dining hall and it’s natural setting and large expanses of glass will take advantage of surrounding views.
The estimated construction cost is $17,000,000.
