James Madison University Interim Dining Facility

James Madison University Interim Dining Facility


James Madison University


With a 2 year construction project in the works to replace the Gibbons Dining Hall, originally built in 1964, it was determined that the best course of action was to build an interim dining facility immediately so that the University could continue to attract students and provide a high level of food services in this competitive environment.


100′ wide by 195′ long insulated Sprung structure and Kitchens To Go modular units.


Construction – less than 6 months


The Sprung structure is seamlessly connected to KTG’s modular units to create a full service dining center. Utilizing connecting corridors and many other Sprung supplied accessories, the University was able to create both indoor and outdoor seating with to-go windows to service passing students.

This Sprung Structure Features

  • Clear span design, translucent daylight panels, and glazing walls around much of the buildings perimeter, creates a bright spacious interior.
  • The University was able to offer the same dining options without sacrificing quality or comfort.
  • Leasing options provided by the Sprung and the KTG team, JMU has the flexibility to use the facility for as long as necessary.
