Keesler Medical Center
Hurricane Katrina gave this hospital the reason and the resources to upgrade its thirty-five-year-old, 18,000 square foot dietary department to bring it up and into the twenty-first century. Fortunately, because new equipment could be integrated into the existing utility infrastructure, the fast-track schedule was met to the satisfaction of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
Designed by HOK, this new research center houses international attendees and their families during extended course sessions and offers a variety of meal options in a highly sustainable fashion.
After the Bank purchased a building near its landmark KPF-designed headquarters, the Studios architectural firm hired HOPKINS to insert a full-service cafeteria on a particularly short floor. The new building’s cafe had to be at least as good as the one at headquarters. Challenge met! With extraordinary engineering skill, HOPKINS shoehorned the full-service cafeteria into the space. The client was delighted.
