Thea’s Abbey dining hall | Sacred Heart University

Sacred Heart University in Fairfield, Connecticut opened the new Thea’s Abbey dining hall in the fall of 2021. Duraframe Steel Framing Solutions used light gauge metal to prefabricate the radiused curved beams in the featured cathedral-like dining hall. The hall’s structure was prefabricated in 10 to 20-foot sections out of Curv Trak, our proprietary preformed radius curved metal framing system. This helped increase the project’s installation efficiency, saving time and labor costs. This project provided a unique challenge due to the multi-curved members’ need for framing the beams.
