The magnificent Waldorf Astoria Grand Ballroom is world-renowned and it was B&Bâ€™s privilege to be chosen for this project. Some of the largest and most famous functions in the New York social calendar are managed by its busy kitchens. B&B was chosen to renovate the supporting kitchen while ensuring the larger kitchen itself stayed open. We created new kitchen facilities with new and relocated equipment, including a new walk-in refrigerator with a flush insulated floor. This required removing the existing structural slab of the floor (located over the main lobby of the storied hotel) and installing new steel and slab to support the recessed walk-in box insulated floor. All construction was carefully coordinated to limit the impact to the daily operations of the hotel, lobby, Grand Ballroom and the kitchen itself.
