A Bright Future
FWH Associates, P.A. is leading the helm of two new projects that include teaming up with a premier solar provider, Safari Energy, to design a solar array system utilizing the rooftops of the parking garages located around The Mall at Short Hills, which is home to over 150 upscale specialty stores and restaurants. FWH Associates, P.A., which provided the survey and civil engineering work, and Safari Energy, which provided the solar array and electrical component, was able to design a 3.5Mw solar system using a carport solar system.
“This system will not only provide over 17 percent of the mall’s overall energy usage, but it will also provide shade and protection to vehicles that park on the upper decks of the parking garage,” said Lee Webb, L.L.A., P.P., Partner at FWH Associates, P.A. “The project has received approval and is scheduled to begin construction this Spring.”
FWH Associates, P.A. also provided the survey and civil engineering services for the site design and approval of the new Oliverie Funeral Home, a two-story, 14,000 sq. ft. funeral home located along Cooks Bridge Road in Jackson. “Once constructed, the funeral home will be the first funeral home in New Jersey to offer facilities for food and beverage and sales of sympathy items such as flowers and cards,” Webb said.
This project has since received approval from the State Board of Mortuary Science of New Jersey. Construction of the project is scheduled to start this Spring.
