Accurate Box

OVERVIEW
Accurate Box, one of the largest independent manufacturers of high-quality laminated packaging in the US, is a 73-year old family-owned business based in Paterson, NJ. Accurate Box called on Langan to help expand their headquarters to over 300,000 SF, so that they could continue to grow and increase much needed employment in the City of Paterson. Langan faced several technical challenges that required innovative approaches to resolving the unique conditions encountered during construction. Environmental considerations also increased the complexity of construction. A number of unanticipated underground storage tanks were identified, removed, and reported to the NJDEP.

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 – Woodbridge Township

OVERVIEW
The project at 301 Blair Road consisted of the renovation of an existing warehouse and the reconfiguration of the existing parking lot and truck court. An ecommerce client was the selected tenant for this building, and the site was designed with their site requirements in mind. The project at 275 Omar Avenue consisted of the demolition of a portion of an existing warehouse and the construction of a new warehouse in its existing footprint. Additional site upgrades included improvements to the existing parking lot and truck court. New driveways were constructed to improve car and truck circulation around the site. Langan was able to design the site without proposing any additional stormwater detention systems or costly mechanical treatment devices.

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.

324 Half Acre Road Warehouse

OVERVIEW
Langan provided engineering, landscape architecture, surveying, wetland permitting, and environmental services for this 680,000± SF spec warehouse. The site was formerly the home of a manufacturing and research facility, and Langan provided detailed phasing plans for regulatory approvals and construction to incorporate several remaining buildings and the accompanying utility infrastructure. Langan was also responsive to meeting the critical scheduling needs of the client.

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.

Wakefern Distribution Warehouse

OVERVIEW
Langan provided a variety of engineering and landscape architecture services for a 524,000 SF grocery distribution warehouse with associated parking, loading, and trailer storage. The new facility replaces an antiquated warehouse which was located on the same parcel and increases storage capabilities by more than 58%. The new warehouse is now capable of more efficient distribution to its grocery chains across the Northeast.

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.

Ambler Boiler House

OVERVIEW
The towering smoke stack of the Boiler House has become an icon to the residents of Ambler Borough and to passengers traveling on the adjacent R-5 rail line. When completed, the Boiler House will contain 36,000 SF of exclusive office space, strategically located adjacent to the R-5 line. An extension of the passenger platform at Ambler Station will provide easy access to Center City Philadelphia and the surrounding area. Langan's site design focused on highlighting the industrial heritage of the site, while addressing some of the more serious contamination issues. The plan incorporated landscape elements and plant material consistent with an industrial site which still provided a level of finish appropriate for corporate offices.

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.
