Alvin H. Butz, Inc. selected as construction manager for Penn State Schuylkill dining addition and renovation project

Allentown, PA, December 4, 2017 . . . Alvin H. Butz, Inc., part of The Butz Family of Companies, was recently selected as the construction manager for the Penn State Schuylkill Student Community Center dining addition and renovation project in Schuylkill Haven, PA. Butz is partnering with Spillman Farmer as the design-build team. The project budget is $6.5 million.

Penn State Schuylkill will renovate 9,000 square feet of existing space and expand the building's footprint by 5,000 square feet to make the dining facility larger, more efficient and modern. Construction will be phased with much of the work strategically taking place over summer 2018, therefore allowing uninterrupted meal service during the 2017-2018 school year.

Features of the building will include:

  • Modern exterior with glass facade
  • New indoor and outdoor seating options
  • Expanded kitchen and servery areas
  • Game room, meeting room and stage
  • More flexible seating and space allocation
  • Additional restrooms
  • Reconfigured loading dock

"We're excited to start construction on this transformational project for Penn State Schuylkill," says Greg Butz, President and CEO of Alvin H. Butz, Inc. "The project will require a fast-track approach to meet the schedule, and we have the best people with the background knowledge needed to make that happen. We are fortunate to collaborate with Spillman Farmer on the design elements."

The project is expected to take six months to complete, with construction starting in February 2018, and will be completed by the end of August 2018.
