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.

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.

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.

Elizabeth Logistics Center

OVERVIEW
To meet demand for warehousing close to the Port of Elizabeth, Langan obtained approvals for a new 290,400-SF warehouse development. The new development is conveniently located south of Newark Airport and just off exit 13A of the New Jersey Turnpike. The site design was challenging because of many limitations ranging from soil conditions to regulatory requirements. Langan obtained Site Plan approval from the City of Elizabeth, which required a use variance and parking variance. The zoning required 900 parking spaces whereas a variance for 140, much closer to the anticipated need, was approved. A Stream Encroachment Permit and a Freshwater Wetlands Permit were obtained from NJDEP. A stream study using Hec-Ras was performed to obtain the NJDEP approvals. Soil Erosion and Sediment Control approval was also obtained.

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.

Matrix Global Logistics Park

OVERVIEW
Matrix is developing a logistics Park on the West Shore of Staten Island. The former Staten Island Marine Development (SIMD) property will have four industrial and distribution buildings, including a fulfillment center and a warehouse. Langan provided site/civil and geotechnical engineering, environmental planning services, and obtained the site development approvals. Because the site does not front on a NYCDEP sanitary sewer, our utility scope included design and NYSDOT, NYCDOT, NYCDEP, and NYSDEC approvals of a mile-long sanitary sewer force main, which lies under the West Shore Expressway and in a NYC street. Our geotechnical engineers compiled historic information, new investigations, and robust analysis to streamline the foundation approval process and reduce the time and expense of a full field investigation.

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.
