Client Challenge

NC State University's Campus Dining Services partnered with Chick-fil-A to open a new dining facility for the campus. Construction would not be completed until 2014 so they needed a temporary dining facility to bridge the gap between their current students dining needs and the opening of the permanent facility. They turned to modular construction to house the fast food franchise, support a fully functioning commercial kitchen and be available for use quickly. Mobilease had to design the modular building around the Wake County health requirement, the NC State University standards for safety and security as well as the specific requirements of Chick-fil-A.

The Mobilease Solution

Mobilease was able to assist NC State University in the design of the modular building, saving the University thousands in the design fees of an architectural firm. The 6,700 sq. ft. modular building was designed for A-3 occupancy and type 5-B construction and fully sprinklered. All of the kitchens, mechanical and electrical equipment were designed per the latest North Carolina energy codes. Mobilease also hired a thirdparty inspection agency to do an air balance to ensure the mechanical system operates at peak efficiency. The overall building design and supporting exterior facades were built to blend into the architectural standards of the University. Mobilease also addressed the specific requirements of Chick-fil-A when selecting the final interior finishes and equipment.
