KBE Breaks Ground for Conn. Naval Facility

GROTON, Conn., Dec. 14, 2012 — KBE Building Corporation has broken ground for a new commissary at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton, CT.

The $14.5 million project will consist of a 57,000 square foot commissary with a general sales area, electronic checkout registers, receiving area, loading dock, meat and produce preparation areas, cold and freeze storage, and other supporting areas. The commissary will be constructed in adherence to current energy conservation policies, standards, and regulations.  

KBE was awarded the project by the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA), the financier and administrator of the construction. KBE was also recently awarded the contract for the new Joint Commissary and Navy Exchange in Annapolis, Maryland. That project is expected to break ground in December 2012.  

The Groton groundbreaking ceremony took place on November 15, 2012. The project is scheduled for completion in January 2014.
