Spectrum Health

Kitchen and Servery Renovation

Grand Rapids, Michigan // 19,715 sq. ft.

Client Challenge

Spectrum Health was in need of complete kitchen and servery renovations to accommodate an “on-demand” meal service program, in addition to significant growth in meal volumes. Spectrum Health’s goal was improved function, operation, and a refreshed look in the Blodgett kitchen.

TowerPinkster Solution

The overall project area consists of four major spaces: the production kitchen, retail servery (staff and visitor meals), the seating area and support spaces (office, staff and storage spaces). Prior to design efforts, TowerPinkster observed existing operations to understand the flow and function of space along with thorough discussion and coordination with the food service consultant regarding new circulation and operational patterns.

TowerPinkster took a  phased approach to this project to avoid disruption of services. To effectively communicate design ideas, layout, and finish selections, our team developed a 3D model of the entire space (walls, MEP infrastructure, existing hood to remain, vertical penetrations, etc.) to allow for a complete understanding of the space. The result was a new space that better served both staff and visitors of the hospital.
