Sordoni Construction partnered with Lackawanna College and Hemmler + Camayd Architects to transform a largely abandoned building and courtyard into a state-of-the-art dining commons and culinary teaching center for students at Lackawanna College.
The two-story, 17,381 square foot building, built in the 1970s, was fully renovated to include industrial teaching kitchens for the Hospitality and Culinary Arts programs, Baking and Pastry program, student dining commons, and President’s dining room. The student dining commons provided a crucial expansion necessary to meet the needs of existing students’ as well as the future needs as Lackawanna College’s growth continues. The President’s Dining Room is a restaurant open to both the students and public featuring food prepared and served by the Hospitality and Culinary Arts program students.
Construction commenced in November 2017 and was completed August 2018.
