Hare Krishna Temple Project | Harrisburg, PA
The Hare Krishna Temple Project consisted of commercial kitchen design services to renovate the existing commercial kitchen located in their temple. The Hare Krishna Temple project, also known as the Institute of Higher Understanding temple, required Mise Designs to generate a full site survey and inventory of all existing equipment to ensure accuracy of the design and development process.
Although the project was basic in design, major construction challenges included structural issues relating to the 100-year age of the building, as well as the challenge that the building itself sits atop a frozen fresh water spring. This spring prohibited floor penetrations from being installed in typical fashion and required the installation of an elevated floor structure to provide adequate drainage.
