J.E. Berkowitz (JEB) has announced the completion of Holtec International’s new corporate headquarters on the company’s 50-acre Krishna P. Singh Technology Campus in Camden, N.J. Built on the former site of the New York Shipbuilding Corp., the seven-story building features 58,000 square feet of glass fabricated by JEB.
Developed by USA Architects, Planners + Interior Designers, P.A., the 160,000-square-foot headquarters unites a variety of green building principles, including the use of energy-efficient materials, abundant daylighting and renewable energy, as well as it’s reclamation of a brownfield site, according to a release from JEB.
“One of the goals for this project was to foster creativity by providing a comfortable work environment,” says Paul R. Swartz, CEO of USA Architects. “The location itself could not have been more ideal. We were able to orient the building to take advantage of floor-to-ceiling glass on the building’s northwest face, which provides abundant natural lighting and sweeping views of the Philadelphia skyline and Benjamin Franklin Bridge.”
For the project, JEB fabricated Winduo insulating glass units (IGUs) in multiple configurations, featuring low-E Solarban 60 glass and performance-tinted Pacifica glass by Vitro Architectural Glass (formerly PPG Glass). JEB also fabricated IGUs incorporating Solarban 60 glass and clear glass with a ceramic frit in a custom tropic blue color. R.A. Kennedy & Sons served as the contract glazier for the project.
Opened in February 2018, Holtec International’s headquarters earned LEED certification at the Gold level.
