LEED OFFICE

 

LOCATION: NORTHERN NJ 

CLIENT: BIOTECH

MARKET SECTOR: SCI-TECH

SIZE: 50,000 SF



THE OPPORTUNITY

PS&S provided design and technical services to support the ongoing growth and changes at this Biotech client's manufacturing/packaging facility in northern New Jersey.

 

THE CHALLENGE

To maximize the use of an existing manufacturing/packaging site, within the constraints of the Meadowlands Commission regulations.  The entire site is in a flood plain, adjacent to wetlands and a wildlife preserve. 

 

THE PS&S SOLUTION

After completing several small renovation projects in the existing facility, PS&S was chosen to be the designer of a new 50,000 sf, 4-story addition to the plant.  This addition, which earned a LEED Gold rating from the USGBC, allowed all of the non-manufacturing uses to be relocated, freeing up the existing building for its core mission. 

Since that time, PS&S has been involved in dozens of projects in this building, modernizing and optimizing the manufacturing/packaging operations.  Shell space in the addition has also been built out, earning a rating of LEED Platinum.  As space in the manufacturing building has been reworked, PS&S has been involved with programming and evaluating nearby buildings to expand their operation, ensuring that the client's commitment to creating a healthy, productive work place, with minimal environmental impact is upheld.
