Warren, N.J. – PS&S, a leading architecture, engineering and environmental consulting firm, today announced that it has completed the move of its corporate headquarters to 3 Mountainview Road in Warren, N.J. The move to the new 44,000 square-foot space incorporated updated designs and features with COVID-related planning in mind.
PS&S worked with broker Newmark Knight Frank to sign a long-term lease in September 2019 with landlord Kushner Real Estate Group (KRE) to make the move from its previous corporate headquarters, which was also in Warren.
“We are pleased to be staying in Warren, NJ where we have been now for more than 50 years,” said John Sartor, P.E., President and Chief Executive Officer of PS&S. “With our new space, we are able to offer our employees a flexible, adaptable and sustainable workplace, which is particularly important now.”
PS&S noted that since the outbreak of COVID-19, the company modified the space by making significant changes, including:
- more spacing for employees;
- re-imagined reception area;
- completely re-doing conference rooms;
- re-thinking kitchen/food areas;
- adding partitions between workspaces;
- increasing sanitization stations;
- focusing on personal hygiene.
“We were able to do many of the same things we recommend to our clients putting more space between cubicles, cutting down on the use of fabric, reducing or automating touch points for light switches and other measures that help to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the air and on surfaces,” added Sartor.
“One of our biggest changes came in conference room design. What had originally been planned as meeting rooms for large groups to work together creatively, has now become a technology hub for people to meet virtually from home or other office locations,” Sartor said.
In addition to the new headquarters, over the past few years, the company has been opening smaller regional offices closer to its clients. PS&S has a total of nine offices primarily in the northeast U.S. and, despite pandemic-related obstacles, the company recently opened new locations in Doylestown, PA and Houston, TX.
3 Mountainview Road is a Class A 105,000 square-foot, three-story building. Recent improvements include a complete renovation of the building’s lobby, cafeteria, and the addition of a 75-person common conference facility, as well as a new fitness center. Also, in response to COVID-19, the building’s owners upgraded the air handlers at 3 Mountainview Road.
