Montana State University, located in the majestic town of Bozeman, is the state’s largest university. With over 16,000 students enrolled, the school recently celebrated its newest dining facility, the Rendezvous Dining Hall. The 30,000-square-foot Rendezvous Dining Hall is an all-you-can-eat facility that includes eight main serving stations. It has seating for 830 people, with half of the seating on a mezzanine level, that includes 100 seats on the outside covered deck. It is expected to serve thousands of meals per day to students, faculty, staff and community members.

The dining hall was a 62-slab job done with Corian® Quartz Mystic Black and Cloud White by Fabricators Unlimited and helped make the new dining hall space anything but standard.

“Fabricators Unlimited's stone fabrication division in Fargo, ND had to adapt to each restaurant style in their fabrication of Corian® Quartz by cutting everything from pointed and linear shaped tops to countertop spaces that were cut to be more circular and curved. When it came to installing, our Billings branch had their work cut out for them given the vast amount of square footage of quartz surface in this building tied with the hefty weight that quartz is known for,” said Alison Sund, Web Marketing/Photography, Fabricators Unlimited - Fargo, ND. “This stuff was heavy but we love a challenge! Fabricators is happy to have been involved from start to finish on this unique project and it looks like this fall season the students of MSU Bozeman will be busy enjoying all that this new space offers,” added Sund.

Corian® Design offerings are an ideal selection for any food service where durability, beauty and longevity are valued. Wherever food is consumed, hygiene must be optimal. Corian® Quartz is nonporous, easy to clean, and hygienic. Its smooth surface does not allow liquids to penetrate, does not promote the growth of bacteria and can withstand the daily spills common in food service environments.

“With the scope and intensity of this job, you need to be working with a product that you trust and know will work. There is always a chance that something could go wrong, and by using Corian® – we have a greater chance of resolving any issues,” said Nick Thompson (Branch Manager, Fabricators Unlimited - Billings, MT).

“We also know the team that we source our Corian® Design products from will always have our back. We have worked with this brand's products since the 1980’s, and these products have been the foundation of many opportunities throughout the years. When you trust your product and the people behind it, you can walk into a job like this with confidence and knowing the end result will be what people will want to see and use for many years to come. Fabricators Unlimited has a lot of pride in being involved in this project,” added Thompson.
