Jarmel Kizel Provides Design Services for Conversion of Former Verizon Facility

East Brunswick, N.J. (April 10, 2012)—Jarmel Kizel Architects and Engineers, Inc., a full-service architecture and engineering firm based in Livingston, New Jersey, recently completed architecture design and engineering services for the conversion of a single-story 15,000-square-foot, single-occupancy industrial building into a new retail facility. Corlmay, the building owner, retained Jarmel Kizel to provide core and shell renovations, as well as tenant improvements to the building as part of its first phase of development.

Located on Route 18 in East Brunswick, New Jersey, the 15,000-square-foot building was constructed in 1975. Verizon most recently occupied the building as office, storage and data center space.

“The location of the building on the southbound side of Route 18, a highly trafficked retail and office corridor, as well as its position in between two traffic signals, made this an ideal building for adaptive reuse,” said Matthew B. Jarmel, AIA, MBA and principal of Jarmel Kizel. “The conversion of an industrial building into a retail facility requires significant changes to the building’s architectural and engineering elements, and our design team provided Coralmay with a myriad of services to meet its objectives for the building.”

Jarmel Kizel provided schematic design services for this project, as well as architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering services. Jarmel Kizel also provided civil engineering services associated with adjustments to the site plan, and designs for fit-up of the furniture store that leased space in the building.

“Coralmay had a goal to turn this vacant building into a place that will bring jobs and rateables to the community, and we were glad to be a part of the company’s unique vision,” Jarmel added.

The project was constructed by 3D Group.

“Jarmel Kizel’s team took on a major design project for us,” commented Dan Tarantini of Coralmay. “The firm’s team of professionals provided a seamless one-stop-shop program of services that transformed this building into very desirable space for businesses to call home.”
