FPA provided professional consulting services for the design and construction of a 120’ x 50’ pre-engineered storage structure for the New Jersey Water Supply Authority located at 2041 Hospital Road in Wall, NJ. The building will be utilized for storage of equipment and materials. Also, the building shall be used as a work area to perform routine maintenance of their equipment.
One of the major design challenges of this project was the location of the storage building with consideration of the site constraints, which included steep slopes, freshwater wetlands and existing underground infrastructure piping. Also, the building needed to be located in close prox
imity to the existing administration building and have good access from the existing parking area. FPA’s creative design included fill placement to manage the steep slopes, reinforced steel to protect the existing infrastructure and selecting a building location to meet the operational needs of NJWSA but located outside of the environmental constraints. All required permitting was obtained and the project is currently under construction.
