Kingston, RI – Vision 3 Architects attended The University of Rhode Island ribbon cutting on Friday, November 6 to celebrate the reopening of Butterfield Dining Hall. The faculty, past and present students, and even Rhody Ram showed their excitement and shared stories of their memories in the old Dining Hall. The 10,000 s.f. renovations included the dining room and servery on the main level and a student lounge on the upper level leading to an outdoor roof deck space. The dining hall seating capacity has been increased from 350 to 560 seats and the servery is proud to serve 700 burritos a day. This project is seeking LEED Silver certification incorporating recycled materials, highly efficient equipment, and state-of-the-art water conservation technology.
