Freight Distribution Facility

From the due diligence phase to the construction phase, Langan helped fast-track the development process of a freight warehouse distribution facility in North Arlington, New Jersey. The proposed development includes a 139,000-SF warehouse and an associated maintenance garage, fueling station, and various parking areas. Langan performed a full geotechnical investigation and concluded that, because of the compressible soils located in the Meadowlands, the site would settle beyond allowable tolerances permitted by the end user. Therefore, a surcharge and preload program were implemented to meet the settlement criteria of the end user.
