The Happiest Café on EarthContributor: Swinerton Blogger | January 27, 2016
In late October, Swinerton Builders finished work at the Disney Buena Vista Café. Located at Walt Disney Studios’ Burbank headquarters, the 12,000-square-foot café received a complete overhaul on an accelerated 12-week schedule. The scope of work included kitchen equipment, custom millwork, all new interior and exterior finishes, mechanical upgrade, structural addition, exterior canopy, as well as owner-supplied furniture, audio/visual, artwork, and murals. During construction, the kitchen remained fully operational to serve the café guests at the lawn just outside the project fencing. In the end, Swinerton turned over the main servery area three days ahead of schedule—ample time for the food vendor to prepare and reopen the café for the public.
