We are pleased to announce that the Krishna P. Singh Technology Campus in Camden, NJ has been selected to receive several awards for its quality, complexity and swiftness of construction, including the LEED Honor and the CMAA Project Achievement Award. The Krishna P. Singh Technology Campus is a 50-acre state-of-the-art campus, which features a 7-story engineering office building, a heavy manufacturing plant, and a light manufacturing plant. These manufacturing plants bring Holtec’s total manufacturing floor space to nearly 1.5 million square feet.
The U.S. Green Building Council conferred the 2018 LEED Honor upon Holtec’s Architectural Team comprised of USA Architects, Concord Engineering, O’Donnell & Naccarato, and T&M and Associates. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building certificate program through the U.S. Green Building Council that recognizes the best in class building strategies across the United States. The Technology Campus was designed from the ground up to limit its impact on the environment. Built on the site of the historic New York Shipbuilding Corporation shipyard, Holtec recycled and reused over 99% of the material found on site. Reducing the amount of virgin materials used in construction both lowered the embodied energy of the project and minimized the amount of waste entering the landfill. The structures of the buildings were made of steel, decorative masonry, and panelized metal wall systems & curtain wall systems with high levels of recycled content. High efficiency heating and air conditioning and variable intensity office lighting limit energy use. Topping off the campus is a 3.2 MW state-of-the-art renewable energy/photovoltaic system installed on the Manufacturing Facility roof. The photovoltaic system provides 35% campus wide energy use savings. Excess energy produced by the photovoltaic system powers the 69kV electrical grid – a first in New Jersey.
The CMAA (Construction Management Associate of America) Mid-Atlantic Chapter also awarded Holtec’s Camden Campus for its outstanding construction. CMAA is a prestigious, non-profit association serving the construction management industry with over 14,000 memberships. The Mid-Atlantic sector of CMAA is made up of about 600 members of the New Jersey, Philadelphia and Delaware region.
