The first new addition to the ICS facility portfolio will be a two-story cafeteria designed with a larger dining area downstairs and a multi-purpose room and separate staff dining room upstairs. The new cafeteria was designed by Israeli architecture firm Plesner Architects, with coordination and construction managed by a local architecture firm, Abba Consultants. Solicitations for construction contractors have been sent to several local companies.
