The client supplied the modular café building seating and equipment to furnish the kitchen/cafeteria. Vanguard Modular Building Systems handled all else such as the foundation, HVAC installed in attic, sprinkler system, special carpet squares in dining area, painted sheet rock walls, and epoxy flooring throughout the kitchen area. The dropped t-grid ceiling was installed for easy access to data systems, phones, and cable so, should a problem arise, workers can easily access it. The café features a stainless steel serving line and checkout area for customers, multiple areas for condiments, water fountains, and a wireless camera system for security. The café property includes an outdoor seating area as an option for customers to enjoy their meal. This unique campus property provides customers convenient access to quality food but with the ability to stay close to their work or loved ones. Vending machines, ice machines, and an ATM were also installed within the modular café building for customers’ convenience.
Modular construction allowed the 3,752-square-foot café to be completed in a fraction of the time it would have taken for traditional site-built construction. Vanguard Modular Building Systems managed all mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and carpentry work thereby permitting the client to quickly open its doors and start generating revenue sooner. As a result, the client received significant cost and time savings. ENERGY STAR appliances were installed at the Courtyard Café to lower energy consumption and operational costs. Additionally, the café is equipped with four flat screen televisions for menu highlights, campus news, and world events. Wireless connectivity throughout allows customers to stay in touch outside the campus.
