Project: Hermann Warehouse in South Brunswick, NJ
Alpine was contacted by the owner and facility manager of the family-owned Hermann Warehouse Distribution. A facility in South Brunswick, NJ hadn’t been painted in many years. The owner wanted to upgrade the appearance of the interior and exterior of this facility which also served as the company’s headquarters.
The owner consulted with Alpine prior to beginning the assignment on what products to use, color schemes and locations, and various concerns he had because the location was an active facility. This client invested a sizable amount to increase the building’s curb appeal – beyond painting the facility – by renovating its interior and upgrading the landscaping. The building’s transformation was very impressive and Alpine had a part in that process.
It Takes a Village
The facility was an old CMU block construction in its entirety. Alpine was called in to prepare the facility’s walls by power washing to remove loose and flaking paint. Alpine worked with a waterproofing contractor who removed all the gutters and liters, and replaced the coping around the entire building. An asphalt contractor handled repaving the entire facility and a landscaping contractor changed the entire landscaping appeal. A mason contractor installed a new ramp to facilitate entry into the building. A carpentry contractor replaced windows and doors. Multiple contractors worked together throughout the duration of the project – over a one year period. Alpine was called in at the beginning of the project to paint, waterproof and seal the exterior of the building and then was called back to tighten up loose ends and get the facility ready for its reopening when the other contractors completed their jobs.
A Successful Finish
Alpine developed a great relationship with the owner and facility manager throughout the project.
In response to their work, the client said:
“Alpine Painting completed a full exterior painting and sandblasting job for Hermann Service Inc.’s new corporate office in Monmouth Junction, NJ. The outside walls, railings, and other areas were addressed with professional quality and thoroughness. Their attention to detail helped renovate our building into a modern and attractive space that we are incredibly proud of. Alpine’s team was timely and communicative throughout the entire process, and it was a pleasure to work with them. Hermann Services would highly recommend Alpine Painting and Sandblasting Contractors.”
The project evolved over time and there were new requests made as a result. Alpine worked hard to meet all requests and expectations with confidence and efficiency. The end results were outstanding as a converted warehouse was transformed into a stunning state-of-the-art facility.
