Ground Broken for $17M Renovation at Jordan’s Furniture in New Haven – KBE and BL Companies Team Up


New Haven, CT – Jordan’s Furniture in New Haven will undergo a $17 million renovation led by construction manager KBE Building Corp. that broke ground at the job site on May 6.

The 193,000sf project, designed by architect BL Companies, encompasses the following scope: renovation of existing building, new entrance feature, signage feature, and canopy, new exterior doors and interior partitions, roof patching, and exterior site work.

The main floor of the building, which has already been stripped free of any of its former features, will be home to the massive furniture showroom. One of the defining features of the showroom will be a 65-foot chair display, featuring 500 chairs.

Unlike at the other Jordan stores, the company will build its workforce with all new employees, instead of having employees from other stores transfer.

The project is scheduled for completion in late fall 2015.

KBE also led the addition and renovation of the existing Jordan’s Furniture store in Natick, Mass. The project included a new IMAX theater, additional showroom and retail space, and interior and exterior theming elements
