With this project IDS helped Michigan Medicine convert their 3-meal/day food service protocol to an on-demand food service protocol. The entire existing kitchen was completely renovated, from top to bottom, in a multi-phased approach, keeping portions of the kitchen active throughout construction, maintaining food service to patients. Existing kitchen space in the North Campus Research Center was used to offset the spaces under construction. Elevator controls were replaced to provide Food Service staff priority, ensuring timely delivery of hot/cold meals. IDS worked directly with JEM Associates, who designed the food service equipment layout.
