Project Description:

This project consisted of the renovation of the 11,080 square foot Orbit Cafeteria at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor’s Complex. The goal was to modernize the cafeteria as well as reconfigure the kitchen and seating area for an innovative new menu and new Point of Sale payment technology.

The project was scheduled to complete the week before Thanksgiving so that the restaurant could have a “Soft Opening” to test all installed equipment and practice serving the new food before the holidays began. To make this date, Ivey’s routinely worked seven days a week and intermittently worked two shifts to allow all subcontractors to work at the highest efficiency on-site to meet the challenging schedule.

With budgetary restrictions from initial pricing Ivey’s had to work very closely with Delaware North to value engineer the project and find more cost effective materials to work the tight schedule. The value engineering included millwork changes from stainless steel tops and pick-up tables to solid surface tops on modified existing knee walls, ceramic wall tile over quilted stainless steel panels, tile patch and re-grouting in lieu of new rubber base floor, and the re-design of the audiovisual televisions layout and mounting equipment.

Construction work consisted of: renovating and reconfiguring existing electrical system to accommodate new kitchen equipment; installation of new audiovisual systems including twelve new 55” televisions and twelve 19” ceiling mounted televisions; refurbishing, installing and all utility connections for the kitchen equipment; renovation and installation of all millwork and new paint; demolition and remodel of the employee restrooms, installation of sixteen hydroponic planters and millwork planter boxes; acoustical ceiling in the kitchen, demolition and installation of gypsum board walls; installation of three grease interceptors and two lift station pumps; new exhaust hoods; fire alarm and suppression modifications; ceramic and glass wall tile; demolition and installation of underground plumbing.
