FORT MONMOUTH MYER CENTER DEMOLITION DESIGN HAS RECEIVED HONORABLE MENTION FOR PROJECT OF THE YEAR

June 13, 2018

Middletown, NJ – T&M Associates, a leading national engineering, environmental and consulting firm, announced that it has received an honorable mention from the Project Management Institute of New Jersey (PMINJ) for the Project of the Year Award. T&M is being honored for their Fort Monmouth Myer Center Abatement, Demolition and Site Improvement Design. The PMINJ Project of the Year Award recognizes and honors a successful project and the accomplishments of the project team for superior performance and execution of exemplary project management. PMINJ believes excellence, innovation and hard work should be celebrated and recognized.

Fort Monmouth officially closed its doors as a U.S. Army installation in September 2011, and a new chapter in the Fort’s history began. The Fort Monmouth Economic Revitalization Authority (FMERA) developed the Fort Monmouth Reuse and Redevelopment Plan to use as a blueprint to promote and encourage employment, commerce and economic development at the former installation, while protecting the Fort’s natural resources and honoring its rich history.

Multiple buildings and structures still remain on a 38-acre tract known as Parcel F1. One of the buildings, the Myer Center, is a four-story, 673,540 square foot building constructed in 1955 that was previously utilized for office, research, laboratory and industrial processes. The buildings on this parcel are considered obsolete and have been a significant impediment to its redevelopment. The demolition of these dilapidated buildings, coupled with site improvements, are critical steps in the redevelopment of the remainder of the Fort.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority (NJEDA) is responsible for overseeing this important project, with FMERA providing additional insight as the property owner. T&M was the project designer and engineer of record. A 29-person project team, which involved various areas of specialization, offices, subconsultants and other stakeholders, contributed to the successful completion of this project.

The demolition of the Myer Center is a significant undertaking, and it must be managed properly to minimize the impacts to the surrounding community. Services provided in the project scope included site/civil engineering; mechanical, electrical and plumbing; environmental permitting; environmental site assessments; construction management/project management; structural engineering; survey; as well as environmental testing.

“During the course of the project, I can confirm that T&M met, and in some cases exceeded, both FMERA’s and the NJEDA’s needs regarding the project scope execution, schedule adherence, risk evaluation, permit procurement and overall delivery on this very large-scale and complex project,” said Timothy Lizura, President and Chief Operating Officer at the NJEDA.

Upon completion of this project, the site will be fully cleared, graded, and stabilized in preparation for potential future development. This is projected to be completed in February of 2019.
