Towson University recently closed the Glen Dining Hall in preparation for its renovation. The project is being timed with the construction of the University Union. With the two projects finishing roughly a year apart, the students of Towson University will be able to enjoy an all-new dining system along with a completely revamped student center set to include an expanded career center, seven new food outlets, and a 300-seat auditorium.

Henry Adams is providing MEP engineering design for the Glen Dining Hall at Towson University. The 21,000 SF renovation will include a larger seating area, restrooms, and selective renovations in the main kitchen to accommodate the large crowd of students that the Glen Complex currently holds. The revised dining hall is also going to include six new food stations and pop-up stations. The Glen Dining Hall will introduce a touch-screen ordering system to go along with the new food options that are provided for students to create a quicker, more efficient way to navigate the dining hall.

Henry Adams is also providing MEP engineering design for the $84M University Union renovation and expansion project – the hub of student social life on the Towson campus. The primary goal of this project is to achieve the University’s vision for developing a student-focused facility that supports the campus community and accommodates the growing student body. The other objective is to address equipment and facilities in need of maintenance in the existing building. The University Union will remain occupied throughout as it must remain operable to students throughout the academic year.
With both of these projects underway, Henry Adams is proud to be a part of both. They are newest entries in a long-tenured relationship with nearby Towson University. Other projects have included renovations to Barton House, Douglass House, Hawkins Hall, Psychology Building, and Burdick Hall.
