History

  • Shortly after occupying their building, Aviron developed a need for an additional 60,000 square feet of storage for their inventory. This next project addresses this need and the buildings are to be connected with a Skyway Bridge. In order to meet the occupancy schedule, Tilt-up Concrete construction was employed. Although typical to the southwest, this is in essence foreign to the northern part of New Jersey on this small scale.
  • Additionally, notice that some of the panels were designed for use as retaining walls below grade. This again is a different application of the tilt-up panel. The soil rises up to 14 feet at its highest and then the lot drops to 10 feet below the warehouse floor at its lowest point.
  • The upper level windows enable a Mezzanine to be employed within the building which provides one-third additional floor space without compromising the area exit requirements.
  • Structural thickness of the panels is 7-1/2" with lightweight aggregate used in the concrete. The exposed aggregate is native to the site as well as the sand. All colors are natural and all the concrete is the same.

Our Design Philosophy

“The art of dancing stands at the source of all arts that express themselves first in the human person.  The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they all unite.” - Havelock Ellis
 
Building facilities unique to the owner’s special needs requires creative effort to balance function, aesthetics, durability and affordability in operation.  We help clients move through these challenges and manifest their dreams and desires in tangible form.
