“This project is one of the few projects earlier in my career where I had the opportunity to be included with client communications from start to finish on a new build…”

Summary of Work: The primary goal for this project was to create a space already a part of an existing franchise, on a dominant corner in Vineland, NJ, while also creating a tenant space adjacent to the franchise. It was designed in such a way that there was a shared storage and basement access between the two spaces. There were also preliminary designs for an expansion above these spaces.

Client Needs:

  • Separation between the two spaces
  • Follow franchise standards for material selection and design methods
  • Motorized access to basement storage space
  • Potential vertical expansion

Project Challenges:

  • Parking space limited to corner parcel
  • Limited foot print with high franchise standards
  • Required cellar access for liquor storage to not greatly impose on footprint
