The Hub Food Truck Pavilion in South Jordan, Utah is now Open!
Serving up Good Food and Good Architecture
One year ago, CMA posted about our innovative project with The Food Truck League, The HUB. An inventive solution to food truck lots, which can be noisy and smelly and lack seating, The HUB turns all those downsides on their head.
Now open for business, The HUB is a 1,994 square-foot permanent food truck pavilion in South Jordan. Comprising spots for 12 food trucks and seating for 160, the establishment ensures foodies across the Wasatch Front will be left satisfied by the rotating plethora of options. The vibrant contemporary structure houses indoor dining, while a large lawn area accommodates outdoor guests.
Achieving all this goodness had its challenges for CMA, our consultants, and the construction team. Value engineering discerned that the designed steel structure and clerestory windows were cost-prohibitive, so the team had to quickly adapt to something cost-effective. “The final structure is wood framing and shear walls punctuated by openings in key areas with translucent panel windows,” notes Scott Bingham, Project Architect. The translucent panels are designed to meet the original intent of the clerestory windows. No dim interior at The Hub! The panels allow the interior space to be bathed in natural light.
For the outdoor covered dining area, the composite wood panels originally designed were not available. We redesigned the look for the area’s inside wall coverings to be a hot rolled steel panel system attached with stainless steel screws. “The steel panels add to the modern aesthetic of the pavilion,” explains Scott.
At the end of the day, the Pavilion is ready to serve up some delicious eats. Diners, prepare to sink your teeth into the competition cooking at The HUB Food Truck Pavilion.
