A design and construction firm is marking the completion of a facility in Piscataway that will serve as a new warehouse and headquarters for a growing logistics provider.
In a news release, Premier Design + Build Group said its work at 20 Constitution Ave. included both ground-up construction and fit-out. The firm’s Iselin-based team completed the 50,273-square-foot structure on behalf of MX Logistics, noting that construction began last October after the client had outgrown its previous location.
“The Pereira family’s success in growing MX Logistics meant they needed a new home,” said Alexis Graziosetta-Tobias, director of project development for Premier. “The Premier team collaborated closely with the Pereiras to identify the right solution and deliver a facility that ensures they are fully prepared for the future.”
The firm, which served as the general contractor, noted that the building features steel frame, load-bearing precast concrete panels, an aluminum storefront and glass and glazing. Other features include a 32-foot clear ceiling height, 15 dock positions, one drive-in door and a truckers’ lounge, with interior spaces such as 10 offices, open workspace for up to 40 employees, huddle rooms and conference space.
Premier’s team also created exterior parking for 58 trailers, 34 tractors and 86 cars, the news release said. In announcing the building’s completion, the firm noted that the site is 35 miles southwest of New York City and offers easy access to interstates 287 and 78, the New Jersey Turnpike and other major highways.
“We chose Premier as our partner because we had confidence that they understood our vision and would create exactly what our family-owned business needed to support our continued growth,” said Luis Pereira, vice president of MX Logistics.
Premier’s Alexander Frenz served as project manager, working with project superintendent Erik Hoermann and David Gasson, vice president of Northeast operations. Other members of the team included design firm Ware Malcomb and Hammer Land Engineering, while Flavio Tamburri of Automation Concepts served as consultant and owner’s representative.
MX Logistics worked with Cushman & Wakefield’s Daniel Badenhausen, senior director of brokerage services, and William Ruckert, senior vice president at The Provident Bank, on the project.
