ENGLERT METAL ROOFING ON RIVER BARGE PARK BUILDINGS. CARLSTADT, NJ

The Herbertsville Bus and Truck Inspection Facility in Wall Township, New Jersey on the Garden State Parkway is used by the New Jersey State Police to inspect vehicles and increase the safety of the traveling public. It is the first inspection facility in the United States to be sited, constructed, and operated on a toll road.

The 8,700 square foot facility includes a 6,000 square foot two-story area where New Jersey State Police conduct vehicle inspections that can even include a look at component vehicle parts for safety issues and  theft. The front of the building is a one-story steep sloped metal roof building that houses a waiting room, lounge, offices and restrooms.

Gannett Fleming Inc. of South Plainfield, New Jersey designed and engineered the structure which includes a 7,000 square foot Englert Series 2000 standing seam roof. The 24-gauge, 18-inch wide panels were coated in a custom color called Antique Copper-Cote, a green iridescent tone characteristic of copper  that has begun to patina. Hall Building Corporation was general contractor for the $7 million project. ADPI, Inc. of Avenel, New Jersey fabricated the roof materials including a custom-made seven-inch box gutter around the sloped roof of the building. Strober Wright Roofing, Inc. of Lambertville, New Jersey installed the roof and gutter systems.

This state park in New Jersey’s Hackensack Meadowlands just minutes from Manhattan features a new winter boat storage house for kayaks and canoes rented to the public as well as a maintenance building for vehicles of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission which oversees the 5,000-acre marshland. The facility also includes a pavilion for educational programs, a promenade above the riverbank and parking area.

It also boasts the region’s first boat launch to the Hackensack in decades, as well as a lowered dock for canoe and skull use. 

By increasing public access to the Hackensack River, River Barge Park will enable residents in the Meadowlands District and beyond to further enjoy the natural environment in their backyard.

The roofs of the boat storage building and a nearby maintenance structure were made of 14,000 square feet of Englert Series 24-guage, 1300 curved metal roofing material. Color is dove grey. The two buildings were built in proportion to two old barges that once occupied the riverfront site. Their red, blue and dove grey colors were selected because they were found in various parts of the old barges. Much of the structures are LEED compliant including the cool roof and the use of materials salvaged from the barges. A red, 30 by 120 foot building houses the canoes, kayaks and paddles while a blue maintenance building garages commission vehicles. Portholes salvaged from the old barges were incorporated into the entry doors to the two buildings. Their curved roofs replicate the bow roof look of the old barges. Yellow pine beams were salvaged from the barges and used to make picnic tables, sign posts and part of an open air pavilion on the site.

The park was designed by DMR Architects of Hasbrouck Heights, New Jersey. General contractor was ARCO Construction of Elizabeth, New Jersey. Metal roofing installer was Architectural Metal Designs of Millville, New Jersey.
