Before: Plans for Open and Accessible Student Space

The University of Minnesota wanted to incorporate a warm and welcoming fireplace in a dining space for all students to access.

The fireplace needed to be accessible, easy to maneuver around, and work around ventilation issues.

After: Circular Fireplace That Creates More Accessibility

We partnered with Metropolitan Mechanical Contractors to transform the University of Minnesota’s dining space into a cozy and welcoming haven for students. With the addition of a circular fireplace, students can now gather around the warm glow while enjoying their meals. The new open-concept dining hall makes navigation a breeze and provides ample space for everyone to dine comfortably. Safety was also a top priority, and we’re proud to say that the space is now more secure and accessible than ever before.
