StFX completes renovations on historic Morrison Hall dining room

August 11, 2021
St Francis Xavier University has completed a number of renovations on its main student dining room that will increase energy efficiency while adding modern technology to the building. The front windows were replaced with more energy-efficient windows which will improve insulation without the use of curtains. The new windows maintain the traditional look of the old ones, but have “fritted” thermal glazing. A variable refrigerant flow cooling and heating system has been incorporated for climate control. The project also includes other improvements such as the replacement of the main dishwasher and dish tabling system. StFX will also be replacing the waste disposal/composting system, doubling the My Kitchen size, and relocating the salad bar and dessert stations. StFX (NS)
