Alamance Community College Culinary Kitchen Expansion

Graham, NC

The Culinary Arts program at Alamance Community College provides specialized training to prepare students to assume various positions as trained culinary professionals. MHAworks provided full design services for the conversion of a 5,000 SF educational space into an expanded kitchen area. This design provides a dining space with a maximized seating capacity to simulate real-world cooking and serving work experiences for students, such as teaching formal wait service. It also allows for the subdividing of the dining area into three smaller areas to best fit ongoing programmatic needs. The instructional kitchen simulates the area of a professional kitchen, including multiple work stations, freezer and chiller storage, and a dishwashing area.
