KTR Warehouse Development

OVERVIEW
Langan developed a site layout to overcome several constraints and provide the maximum building square footage for the client. This resulted in an 111,300-SF building on the northern lot and an impressive 905,000-SF building on the southern lot. Design constraints included 15 acres of wetlands, an unstudied flood plain, a 16-inch diameter water main in the middle of the site, high voltage electric lines and associated easements, and close proximity to a residence. Langan performed a flood study and net fill calculations to obtain a NJDEP Stream Encroachment Permit. We also designed the site lighting and landscaped buffer behind the West Manor Way residence to address all of the property owner’s concerns.

Sortation Center – Teterboro

OVERVIEW
Langan performed site/civil, traffic, geotechnical, and local permitting assistance for an existing facility located in Teterboro, New Jersey. The proposed development included interior building modifications to convert the existing facility to a sortation center with a delivery service component. The project required exterior site improvements, including the addition of loading docks and the reconfiguration of truck/car parking areas. Langan also went through extensive permitting with the NJDEP, as the entire site is located within the floodplain.

Matrix Business Park at 7A

OVERVIEW
Located just minutes from exit 7A of the New Jersey Turnpike, the Matrix Business Park has become prime real estate for the industrial/distribution market in New Jersey. Langan’s involvement with the Matrix Business Park at 7A began in 2005 with the design, permitting, and construction administration of an approximately 900,000-SF distribution center for KTR Capital Partners in the western portion of the park. Langan then designed and permitted three speculative facilities in the eastern portion of the park. Langan performed detailed site development design of the three additional facilities, totaling approximately 1.65-million-SF of floor space, and obtained the required entitlements from the Township, County, State, and local soil conservation district. To date, Langan is responsible for the design, permitting, and construction administration of five of the distribution facilities in the park totaling 2.8-million SF of floor space.

Goya Foods Headquarters

OVERVIEW
The new headquarters consists of an approximately 615,000-SF warehouse on a 40-acre site. Langan provided site/civil, geotechnical, surveying, traffic engineering, landscape architecture, and natural resources permitting services. Our multi-disciplined approach greatly simplified a complex development process, thereby bringing great value to Goya. Additionally, Langan recommended a concrete modulus column subgrade improvement program, which was designed to support a high slab loading with a minimal settlement tolerance. This solution saved approximately $8 million as compared to a standard deep pile foundation.

Cranbury Logistics Center

OVERVIEW
Langan prepared a general development plan submission for this 395-acre parcel adjacent to the New Jersey Turnpike. Langan’s integrated team of site/civil, geotechnical and environmental engineers and scientists prepared a design to construct 2.8 million SF of warehouse distribution on approximately 150 acres of the site. The full build-out of the business park includes three cross-dock warehouse buildings and is one of the largest wetland mitigation projects in state history. Proper remediation of the site required impact to nearly 50 acres of contaminated wetlands. In order to minimize impacts to forested areas, sparsely vegetated uplands were excavated to form shallow concave grades to allow water to accumulate in these areas, creating an amphibian habitat. An extended 10-acre stormwater basin was also used to create additional wetlands mitigation by designing planting shelves and islands within the basins to allow for wetland plantings to grow.

Crate & Barrel Distribution Center

OVERVIEW
The Crate & Barrel Distribution Center located on Half Acre Road in Cranbury, NJ consists of two buildings - a 300,000± SF warehouse and a 375,000± SF warehouse (expandable to 650,000± SF) with a Crate & Barrel Outlet store. Notable project features included a fast-track design/permitting schedule and the incorporation of a two-phase construction schedule.

Burlington Neck Warehouse Redevelopment

OVERVIEW
Langan helped engineer the redevelopment of the 130-acre former Hercules Burlington Plant, which ceased manufacturing operations in 1992, into four new warehouses totaling 1.69 million SF. The site required environmental remediation and is now capped with processed dredged material (PDM) under the supervision of NJDEP. Approximately 300,000 cubic yards of PDM were used to raise grades necessary for site development. With the help of Langan, a new stormwater management system design enabled preliminary “pad ready” construction to continue after a failed attempt to construct two wet ponds near the Delaware River.

Fulfillment Center – Windsor

OVERVIEW
Langan provided multiple services to KTR Capital for the development of a 1.3-million-SF distribution warehouse in Windsor, Connecticut. Langan worked closely with the town to develop an entitlement schedule to meet the project's aggressive requirements, which included public outreach to neighbors, a public hearing for work within the upland review area, a text amendment for parking, public hearing for subdivision, and site plan approval. The project also required a Major Traffic Generator Certificate from the Office of State Traffic Administration. Additionally, Langan provided traffic engineering, utility design, stormwater management design, landscape and lighting design, and due diligence services.

Fulfillment Center – Fall River

OVERVIEW
Langan provided a variety of services for the design and construction of the fulfillment center located in Fall River. Design services included layout of the one million-SF distribution center along with 1,500± passenger vehicle parking stalls, a truck court, a rain garden, and a stormwater management basin. Langan met the water quality requirements for the site by designing a rain garden and stormwater management basin as opposed to using numerous expensive water quality manufactured treatment devices. Langan quickly and efficiently prepared and delivered a site plan submission to the regulatory agencies and approvals were obtained in short order, with few comments and very minor revisions.

Project Goliath Fulfillment Center

OVERVIEW
The Project Goliath Fulfillment Center involved redevelopment of the former Randall Park Mall in North Randall into an e-commerce fulfillment center. The former mall was the largest in the world when it was constructed, but later began to decline and eventually closed in 2009. Three former anchor store buildings that remained on the 70-acre site were demolished during the due diligence phase to make way for the new 855,000-SF warehouse. Langan provided a full range of services on the project from due diligence through construction to help shave several months off the typical project delivery timeline. The fast-track nature of the project, and the aspects associated with redevelopment of a former mall site, required the close integration of survey, geotechnical, environmental, site/civil, and traffic services.
