• Owned by General Media of California, Garden State Papers has several paper recycling facilities along the east coast for the purpose of recycling newspaper for their many newspaper publishing facilities. Since landfills are closing yearly in New Jersey, the legislature has mandated recycling of paper, glass, metal and Plastics.
  • Garden State needed a regional facility and the industrial park became a prime location for such a plant. To meet the occupancy schedule of the tenant, tilt-up concrete construction allowed the project to open in just five months.

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.
