KBE Building wins honor for Armed Forces Reserve Center

KBE Building Corporation (KBE) (www.kbebuilding.com) earned a First Place Award for the Armed Forces Reserve Center (AFRC) at the 2012 Connecticut Building Congress (CBC) 16th Annual Project Team Awards Banquet in the category of Best New Project over $10 million.

The $54 million, 203,000-sf AFRC facility in Middletown, Connecticut encompasses a state-of-the-art training center, a vehicle maintenance facility, and a field equipment storage facility for the Connecticut National Guard and Army Reserve. KBE Building Corporation was the Design-Builder for the project in a joint venture with DeRita Construction Company, with Kleinfelder as the Architect of Record. The construction phase was completed in just 16 months, a remarkable achievement given the scope of work, which included the removal of nearly 500,000 cubic yards of soil and rock from the site. The new Reserve Center features numerous “green” building measures, including a “green” roof, photovoltaic arrays, and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems.

Previously, the Armed Forces Reserve Center project won Best in Show from Connecticut’s Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc., as well as the 2012 Engineering Excellence Grand Award from the American Council of Engineering Companies. +
