LEED Silver Equivalent
David Franzen

Completed in January 2012, the new 19,700 square foot cafeteria for Lahainaluna High School replaces an existing outdated cafeteria that was constructed in 1963.
The program called for a modern and highly functional full-service kitchen with dining and assembly capacities for 650 and 1,000 students, respectively. Foodservice includes breakfast and dinner for the school’s 118 boarding students.
The dining/assembly space is radial in design to promote sightlines to the center stage. A wrap-around lanai provides for shaded exterior dining and social gathering areas for students with views towards the ocean and neighbor islands. High ceilings with exposed trusses, acoustic structural decking, high-performance low-speed ceiling fans, daylight tubes, and stack ventilation provisions are part of the innovative design and contribute to the openness of the space, acoustic clarity and occupant thermal comfort in a naturally ventilated environment.
The project is designed to be LEED Silver equivalent and was fully commissioned.
