This single-story student dining facility on Arizona State University's West campus, adjacent to a student housing community, was designed and built to receive LEED-Silver certification. Sustainable features include LED lighting, low-flow plumbing fixtures, recycled content materials, low-VOC sealants and paint coatings and FSC-certified wood products. The 21,876-sq-ft interior includes a full kitchen, cafe, grab-and-go market, indoor dining, two multipurpose conference rooms and a reserved dining room.
