Encompassing 13,500 square feet, the project underwent a comprehensive process of programming, test fitting, interior design, kitchen design, and MEP/FP design.
The intricately planned space includes: support for academic areas, teaching labs, classrooms, and a dedicated career center. To align with NECC’s overarching mission and vision, SGA engaged closely with the client. Delving into the school’s culture and specific spatial requirements needed to ensure this project’s success. This collaborative approach informed the creation of a meticulous programming report, detailing every facet from areas and amenities to adjacencies and standards essential for the project’s success.
The kitchens have evolved into a cherished community resource, symbolizing SGA’s commitment to creating spaces that inspire and foster connection. This project stands as a testament to the firm’s prowess in seamlessly merging design with functionality, offering students a pathway to embark on successful careers in the restaurant industry.
