Ground Broken to Transform Dormant Newark Brownfield Site

BSG’s Senior Vice President of Land and Marine Engineering, Andy Raichle, P.E., was on site for a groundbreaking July 31st on a $50 million 350,000-square-foot warehouse in the Ironbound section of Newark. Morris Companies, a Rutherford, N.J.-based developer, is building on the dormant brownfield site, the home of a former Sherwin Williams Co. paint facility at 60 Lister Avenue. BSG is providing a full range of consulting and engineering services for this project, including civil, marine, environmental, survey, construction administration, and grants and funding. The site will also qualify for the state of New Jersey’s Urban Transit Hub Tax Credit program, which offers incentives to companies to develop near major transportation centers. Vital to the economic health of existing cities and suburban centers, Newark has actively been transforming and redeveloping brownfield sites, such as this one.

Dave Applegate, BSG's Vice President of Water Resources, was recently recognized by Northern Ocean Habitat for Humanity (NOHFH), a local branch of the national nonprofit housing organization that he is actively involved with and that BSG frequently supports. NOHFH formally thanked Dave for all of his efforts with their organization, most recently for serving as NOHFH Construction Committee Chairman, and for organizing volunteers from the Toms River Kiwanis Daybreak, an organization that sponsors and participates in many projects to support children and the local community. Dave has been an active member of the Toms River Kiwanis Daybreak since 2010, and involved on the NOHFH Construction Committee for 2 years. His passion for both local charities is evident in his unwavering commitment and hard work. Great work, Dave!
