Construction has commenced on the new world headquarters for SHI International Corporation. SHI will immediately occupy one-half of the significantly renovated 5-story office building in Somerset, NJ, representing over 220,000 square feet of floor area.
The Cornerstone design team is extremely honored to report that they have again been commissioned by SHI leadership to serve as the Architect of Record for this monumental Central NJ project. Cornerstone designed the present headquarters in 2007, which has now been outgrown by SHI.
For this project – Marco Migliaro, Assoc. AIA, is coordinating the design team’s overall activities. Donna Miller, Assoc. AIA, LEED AP is managing the LEED Silver certification for Commercial Interiors effort. Erin Jimenez is responsible for the interior design implementation. Robert Barranger, AIA serves as the partner in charge of the project.
The project is not only monumental in size, but also in significance. The new SHI world headquarters is anticipated to be a LEED Silver space under the 2009 LEED for Commercial Interiors guidelines. The building will be fit with solar panels, the heating and cooling system has been upgraded to be more energy efficient, and the interiors are being redone to improve indoor air quality. This project is a continuation of SHI International Corporation’s existing environmental awareness.
Architects are skilled professionals who listen to you, interpret your wishes, help realize your building dreams, and add value at every stage of a project.
