• As one of only five manufacturers nation wide making bulk nail polish and coatings, Gloss-Tex Industries began to see its business outgrow facilities in Newark, New Jersey. Their decision to move prompted new facilities in the industrial park.
  • The front portion of the building contains offices and mechanical facilities on two floors of 1,400 square feet each. The rear of the building is the manufacturing area of the bulk coatings. The flashpoint range of the raw material is widespread - from very low to very high - thus creating a high hazard area.
  • The metal panels seen on the sides of the rear of the building are explosion relief panels to comply with BOCA and NFPA requirements.

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.
