Albertville City Schools – Cafeteria (191)

This project was a new fully modernized construction of a cafeteria for Albertville High School. This building consisted of 14,500 square feet of new space. Modern state of the art food service equipment was installed in the kitchen area with walk in coolers and freezers. This area also includes a spacious storage area for dry food storage with shelving and racks included.

The dinning area adequately will dine four hundred students and faculty at one setting. The finishes are unique in the way the ceiling systems include acoustical clouded areas to show multidimensional planes and elevations. Lighting fixtures are suspended from aircraft cables to break the monotonous of standard ceiling fixtures.

The exterior walls are made up to include large storefront windows to allow enormous natural lighting to the interior to add to the open areas. The floor is a polymer system poured with layouts systematic with the radios at the front of the building. The exterior facade consisted of cast stone; brick, aluminum storefront and fiberglass molded stepped soffit system.

The building included three towers at the front corners and main entrances. Just off the front radios of the building a four-tiered amphitheater was constructed for school functions and assemblies. The landscaping consisted of common sodded areas for student activities. The main drive entrances would accommodate several buses at the same time for student arrival and departure from school.
