What a night! ABC CT’s annual membership meeting last night was so well attended and gave us the chance to catch up with many of our trade contractor partners and others.
Extra bonus for the night – KBE and our senior leadership was honored with THREE awards and recognition of our 40 years of ABC membership!

To start, CEO Mike Kolakowski and CFO Tim O’Brien were each inducted into ABC’s Beam Club, which recognizes ABC’s top membership recruiters for their commitment to growing the association. Mike is one of three individuals to ever reach the Merit Plus Level status in the Beam Club, while Tim has achieved the Beam Club Level.

We also received the Merit Cup award for the third time since 2014, which recognizes firms for their excellent leadership, commitment to continued education of employees, industry advocacy, and more.

Spring is here and the KBE team in Scottsdale took to the ball-field for a Spring Training game! It was a perfect day to watch AZ Diamondbacks vs Chicago Cubs and a great break from the office. Our youngest “employee” – Cort Darling’s son – even got an autographed game ball!

Time to tear it out! 🛠️ 🚧

Our New Valley Construction team just wrapped up a fast-paced construction schedule this weekend, installing a temporary race track inside LA Memorial Coliseum in time for the NASCAR Busch Lite Classic this past weekend. Race day went off without a hitch, even after NASCAR officials pushed up the start date a day early due to pending storms in the area.

And now it’s time to tear it all out and restore the Coliseum! Demolition will be complete by Feb, 22, 2024_, and incudes removal of safety barriers and protective coverings. The crushed concrete underlayment and asphalt will be milled on site and recycled – in fact, 99.5% of the materials and products used for this temporary installation will be repurposed and/or recycled.

Slide 1 - What we built!
Slide 2 - Tearing it out!
Slide 3 - Going, going...
Slide 4 - Gone!

Finish Line! 🏁

Even with an unexpected early start to the Clash – one day early in fact! – the New Valley Construction (NVC) team had the raceway inside LA Memorial Coliseum ready to go well in advance.

On Saturday morning, Feb 3, NASCAR officials made the call to kick-off its annual Busch Light Classic Clash that evening - a day early, due to pending rains and flooding risks in LA on Sunday.

Our NVC team was ready for the challenge, and everything was in place for the start!

Congrats to the NVC team on another great finish for NASCAR – and congrats to the drivers for a terrific competition.

It was great to take part in the ABA’ s (Arizona Builders Alliance) very successful Christmas Party at Sunshine Acres in Mesa, AZ, which provides a home for children separated from their parents. For the Christmas event, each child has an individual sponsor and all gifts are wrapped by our Community Project Team. It takes a village and I am proud that KBE Building is part of this terrific organization.

This year’s event hosted 75 children, who were also able to choose from the many other toy donations which were received.

Several super heroes came to spend time with the kids, including Batman, Wonder Woman, Barbie and Ken!

We also bought back the “Nerf Gun Battle” which the kids love. We supply safety goggles for everyone and it’s the kids against the adults.

A fun time was had by all!

It has come to our attention that an individual wearing a KBE-branded yellow safety jacket has been seen on video removing a package from a private residence in Northford, CT.

We have verified that this individual is NOT an employee of our company.

We have been in touch with the Northford police to offer our assistance in whatever way we can to help them locate this individual.

But again, this individual is NOT an employee of our firm.
