Alexander Building Construction Co. Begins Construction of Café for Indiana University of Pennsylvania

State College, PA, July 11, 2013 . . . Alexander Building Construction Co. has begun construction of a new campus café, titled the Crimson Café, for Indiana University of Pennsylvania. According to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, the project is the result of their desire to improve quality, service and satisfaction of its dining facility customers.

"We recognized a current deficiency in seating capacity and wanted to align dining capacities and locations with the needs of current students and the planned growth of enrollment," says Raymond Wygonik, P.E., Director of Engineering and Construction at Indiana University of Pennsylvania.

"Communication between all parties is vital when trying to maintain quality as well as time and cost efficiency," says Christopher Magent, General Manager - State College and Business Development and Strategic Initiatives Director for the Butz Family of Companies. "After meeting with IUP representatives, it was clear that our two companies shared similar project goals and would work well together on this dining facility."

The 13,500 square-foot café will consist of a multi-venue food court consisting of a soup and sandwich station, Burger Studio, Starbucks and Brick Oven Pizza. A total of 426 seats are included in the current design in a variety of configurations serving the various venues.

"Our project team looks forward to working with IUP in order to successfully complete the Crimson Café to the full satisfaction of the university," says Magent.

Completion of the café is expected to occur in August 2014.
