KBE Renovates UCONN’s McMahon Dining Hall

STORRS, Conn., July 18, 2012 — KBE Building Corporation has started renovations on the University of Connecticut’s McMahon Dining Hall

The $7.1 million project consists of 14,000 square feet of renovations, including a 5,500 square foot addition, a new dining facility with all new kitchen equipment, and the removal of a storefront. The existing building is composed of two seven-story towers and a two-story dining & lounge area. 

KBE has constructed eight projects to date for the University of Connecticut, including the 138,000 sf, 450-bed Hilltop Residence Hall, the 230,000 sf award-winning renovation and addition to the Student Union, and the renovation and code upgrades to more than 50 buildings on the main campus at Storrs and at three other satellite campuses in the state. 

“Being able to improve the daily lives of the students through not only this renovation, but also the many other projects we have completed over the years, is a real honor.  We are deeply appreciative of our long-standing relationships with the great people at UCONN,” said Mike Kolakowski President and CEO of KBE Building Corporation. 

Construction for McMahon Dining Hall will be completed in September 2012.
