Dietz & Watson Headquarters Expansion

OVERVIEW
After a devastating fire, the Dietz & Watson deli products distribution plant in Delanco, NJ was forced to find a new place to call home. The food industry giant opted to return to their roots in the city of Philadelphia and expand upon their existing 22-acre corporate headquarters. The expansion will include a new 200,000-SF enhancement of its corporate headquarters and manufacturing facility, and a new fleet-maintenance facility. Langan provided site/civil, environmental, geotechnical and traffic engineering; landscape architecture; and survey services in the redevelopment of a portion of the former Frankford Arsenal site along the Delaware River. Langan’s brownfield redevelopment experience and regulatory expertise contributed to the accelerated permitting schedule.

Chrin – Lot 30

OVERVIEW
Langan developed a site feasibility study including comprehensive geotechnical and land development recommendations for a proposed 425,000-SF warehouse on the approximate 37-acre site. The feasibility study was used as a basis for the subdivision, land development plans and permits for the project. Challenges at the site include karst (limestone) geology that is prone to sinkholes, which limited the ability to meet the state storm water requirements and the need for a building surcharging program, shallow bedrock, and existing floodplain areas.

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.

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.

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.
