University of Richmond


Heilman Dining Center

In association with food service consultants, Porter Consulting, BCWH assisted the University of Richmond in the study phase and execution of the Heilman Center expansion. The Heilman Center addition and renovation project transforms the Dining Center into a state-of-the-art food service production and dining facility for the University of Richmond Campus. The project transforms the servery into an updated "marketplace" format with custom finishes including granite countertops, custom casework and a palette of wall finishes, porcelain tile flooring, ceiling elements and decorative lighting to create a mosaic of colors, patterns and textures, and a warm and inviting atmosphere that features the food.

The new addition expands the kitchen and provides a new campus convenience store. Administrative offices for Dining Services are consolidated along with a central Campus Post Office on the floor above the new kitchen. The new addition provides approximately 12,600 SF on two new floors. The existing entry lobby, kitchen and servery areas are approximately 15,000 SF of heavy renovation. The project is LEED certified by the US Green Building Council.
