The 19, 2000 square-foot, $5.7 million school cafeteria for the Flying Eagles, includes kitchen, stage, dressing rooms, restrooms, a 750-person capacity dining hall and separate faculty dining room.

The project is discussed in the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, the Honolulu Advertiser, the American Council of Engineering Companies of Hawai’i, and in a press release from the school district.
