Design Builder and Constructor for this award-winning 138,000 sf, 450-bed residence hall. The building was constructed in just 12 months – a full semester ahead of schedule, even with an unusually severe winter. KBE recommended the use of a precast structure incorporating bearing walls, shear walls, and floor plank, which was fabricated in an environmentally controlled facility under stringent quality control.
Noteworthy: “The characteristic that KBE portrayed through its personnel that struck me most was ‘integrity’…all players involved in this project were in fact part of a team looking to build the very best building possible with no excuses at the end.” – Scott Gallo, Project Manager, University of Connecticut
