SJP Properties announced today that its third-party construction and project management arm, SJP Project Solutions, has completed the first and second phases of its renovations at McCarter & English’s Gateway Center office in Newark. The full-service law firm tapped SJP Project Solutions to transform its five-floor, 100,000-square-foot office to reflect the evolving work styles and needs of the firm’s 21st-century workforce. SJP Project Solutions is expected to complete the restacking by the fourth quarter of 2022.
“SJP’s ability to drive competitive pricing in the marketplace for construction services, and our unblemished track record executing projects of this scale and complexity — regardless of market conditions — make us the ideal partner to help McCarter & English realize the firm’s vision for its Newark office,” said Andrew Natale, COO of SJP Properties. “We have both the project staff to support these kinds of builds and decades of success executing similar complex projects across Newark for clients such as Prudential, Panasonic and KS Engineers. We’re pleased to continue growing Project Solutions’ reputation in the market as a specialty construction practice at the forefront of offering next-generation office space and unique solutions for corporate locations across the New York Metropolitan area and beyond.”
McCarter & English has offices across the Northeast and predominantly offers its innovative transactional, intellectual property and complex litigation counsel to Fortune 100, mid-market and emerging growth companies. The overhaul of the firm’s five floors, which it has occupied for decades, will include the creation of an open, glass-walled office to provide a workplace ecosystem positioned for the future of legal office space — echoing the firm’s forward-thinking business model and relationship-driven approach.
“Throughout the restacking of our five floors at the Gateway Center, the commitment and professionalism of the SJP Project Solutions Team has been exemplary. We know we can continue to rely on their continued expertise and dedication to the complete transformation of our Newark location,” said Michael Schetlick, Director of Office Services at McCarter & English.
SJP Project Solutions is working in conjunction with Francis Cauffman Architects (FCA), engineering consultant Robert Derector Associates and the project management team from Newmark to complete the restacking.
SJP Project Solutions has completed numerous build-outs for fellow owners, developers and tenants across New Jersey and New York, most recently having been chosen to lead the build-out of Eisai’s new headquarters in Nutley, New Jersey earlier this year. Project Solutions has also executed interior build-outs for financial services firm TIAA at 194 Wood Avenue South and multiple projects in New York and New Jersey over the past year alone.
