    Construction of a new dining facility in the 2400 block continues at Fort McCoy.

    This is a new 1,428-person annual training/mobilization dining facility and construction began in July.

    The Louisville, Ky., office of USACE awarded a $12.3 million contract in May for the construction this facility, said Nathan Butts, contract oversight representative with the Fort McCoy Project Office of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

    The contract was awarded to L.S. Black Constructors Inc. of St. Paul, Minn., and is supposed to be completed in 2019.

    According to the contract scope of work for each facility, the new facilities will be built with food preparation and cooking areas; an entrance/control area; and serving, dining, dishwashing, administration, and locker areas. It will also have a state-of-the-art waste-disposal system, a receiving and loading dock, cold and dry storage, and more.

    Once completed, this dining facility will be the sixth brick-and-mortar dining facilities on post. Additionally, Army Corps of Engineer officials said building a dining facility is different than building other types of facilities and generally takes longer.

    “These facilities require lots of specialty equipment, which means additional time is needed to build the connections and lines for that equipment into the infrastructure,” said Nathan Butts, contract oversight representative with the Army Corps of Engineers.

    The facility is being built on several acres of land, Butts said. It will have a large parking lot and plenty of space for customers.
