BINDI DESSERTS DISTRIBUTION CENTER
KEARNY, NEW JERSEY

Developed to serve as the United States headquarters, Bindi Desserts planned the construction of an approximately 40,000 square foot distribution center comprising loading docks, pavement areas, new utilities, and two stormwater retention basins in the marsh wetlands of Kearny, New Jersey.

 

One of the challenges associated with the project included that prior to the development, the project site was historically an undeveloped marshland evidenced by over 100 feet of clay present within the subsurface and was likely used as a sanitary landfill. Additionally, an approximately eight feet wide easement was present at the site.

 

JZN Engineering provided geotechnical investigation and engineering services to assess the subsurface soils conditions and provided recommendations for foundation design, slope stability assessment for earthwork during construction, analysis of timber pile deep foundation capacity, deep foundation load testing analysis, and construction quality assurance inspections.

FLEX BUILDING
BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY

Located on 5th St Connection in the City of Bayonne, Hudson County, New Jersey, a proposed 40,320 square feet flex building comprising office and industrial space was planned for a steel distributing tenant.
