Herricks High School Cafeteria and Commons
100 Shelter Rock Road, New Hyde Park, NY
Client:Herricks Union Free School District
Architect:BBS Architects, Landscape Architects & Engineers
Size:7,000 s/f
Cost:$3.95 million
Serving the Herricks UFSD as general contractor, Stalco renovated and expanded the Herricks High School’s cafeteria into a visually dramatic, ultra-flexible, 7,000-sq. ft. café and commons. The $3.95 million project changed an outdated and static cafeteria into an attractive and highly reconfigurable social hub that not only serves 500 meals each day, it affords flexibility and features to provide a great venue for presentations, performances, and other events.
Stalco devised the complex phasing and scheduling of this project to accommodate the daily operations of a large school without any significant interruptions, as construction took place while the school remained operational. For example, when the team built the kitchen and serving line, the existing systems had to be taken offline. Stalco performed this work during holidays and vacation periods, so as not to disturb the cafeteria’s services. New utility upgrades were installed at this time, along with all-new equipment and infrastructure improvements.
The new 5,050-sq. ft. café and commons area is fitted with a system of glazed folding walls that allows the space to be split into a multitude of configurations, including two large dining areas and a centrally located 300-sq. ft. “glazed-box” semi-private dining room. The scope of work also included a new 1,650-sq. ft. kitchen with equipment as well as a serving line, adjacent food preparation areas, office space, storage, and support facilities.
