ACEC New Jersey Honors Gannett Fleming Project
May 19, 2017
(South Plainfield, N.J.) The American Council of Engineering Companies of New Jersey (ACECNJ) recognized Gannett Fleming’s design of a new Central Services Facility for the New Jersey Turnpike Authority (NJTA) at its 46th Annual Engineering Excellence Awards banquet this spring. The project received an Honor Award in the Industrial and Manufacturing Processes and Facilities – Large Project category.
The new facility is a first-of-its-kind for the client and consolidated 26 facilities into one location. It features a mixed-use building with 40,000 square feet of warehouse high-bay storage; 11 working garage bays and offices for 125 employees; a 60,000-square-foot outdoor storage area; a salt shed and fueling station; 249 parking spots; and a stormwater detention basin, all on a 9.93-acre site. Gannett Fleming completed the design and construction of the building in just 17 months and saved the NJTA $4 million by value engineering a geogrid to retain soil instead of the traditional retaining walls.
ACECNJ’s annual competition recognizes engineering achievements that demonstrate the highest degree of skill and ingenuity among firms throughout the state of New Jersey. Projects are judged by a panel of industry experts on a rigorous set of criteria, including innovation, complexity, and future value to the engineering profession.
