Benson Kitchen at Santa Clara University
Wald Ruhnke & Dost Architects, in collaboration with Balch Construction of Santa Clara, began the Benson Kitchen project at Santa Clara University in mid June 2013, and completed it in early September.
This tenant-improvement design build project replaced the existing kitchen with a new layout, new equipment and new interior finishes. Also included were supporting offices, toilet rooms, a locker room, and a canopy roof at the existing loading dock. The total improvement area was 8,404 square feet, and required complete demolition of the existing space and installation of new walls with full height tile, tile flooring, and new T-Bar ceiling. New toilet rooms and lockers comply with current ADA requirements.
Additional team members were Webb Design, Sprig Electric, and KDS Plumbing, Inc.
