Maine Lakes Resource Center

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.

The Maine Lakes Resource Center in Belgrade Lakes, Maine is the initiative of Docks to Doorways -- a coalition of Colby College and conservation-minded groups, including the Belgrade Lakes Association and the Belgrade Regional Conservation Alliance. The facility is considered Maine’s center for lake water quality conservation and advocacy. In addition, the building is a focal point for the community—hosting concerts, art exhibits, seminars and the region’s farmers market.

The architectural details of the building are aimed at evoking an agricultural heritage and the local timber framer travelled to Pennsylvania to select timber for the interior from razed barns that were 200 to 300 years old. The building is capped by an Englert Series 1300 Galvalume Plus standing seam roof chosen for its traditional aesthetics, durability and snow shedding capabilities. The 3,800 square foot roof was custom Fabricated on-site from 24-gauge, 24 inch wide coil. However, the majority of the panels were trimmed to 18 inches to achieve a symmetrical seam layout integrating with the numerous shed dormers and cupola. C.O. Beck & Son was the roof installer. Co-owner Carl Beck reports the biggest challenge was doing the detailed custom work during dead of winter. 

The architect was Art Dioli of Olson Lewis Dioli & Doktor Architects & Planners, Inc. in Manchester, Massachusetts. The general contractor was Mark Gliniewicz of Belgrade Lakes Carpentry Inc. in Waterville, Maine and the timber framer was Matt Morrill of Grand View Log & Timber Frames in Winthrop, Maine
