Firm designs building for Asbury Park Press.

Lockwood Greene, an international engineering design and architectural firm, s providing design engineering and architectural services for the renovation of a 30-year old building and the addition of a new press building for the Asbury Park Press in Freehold, New Jersey.

The Asbury Park Press is the second largest daily and Sunday newspaper in New Jersey. The project involves the conversion of a 125,000 square-foot manufacturing facility, previously owned by 3M, for new use as an office site, insertion operation and printing plant. In addition to the renovation, a press building is being added to the existing two-story structure. of the existing building systems will be replaced or upgraded.

Numerous adaptations are being incorporated to meet the special requirements of a printing facility. New electrical service will be installed to meet the operation's high electric demands. The thermal envelope of the building will be upgraded to conserve energy and reduce costs. The 35-acre site will also be adapted to meet the requirements for delivery of newsprint by rail. High bay storage areas will be designed to accommodate rolls of newsprint.

The new addition will feature a deep foundation system to support the heavy weight of the printing presses. In addition, the press foundation has to be isolated from the building in order to prevent vibration from disturbing the building structure.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 1994. The cost of construction will be approximately $5 million.
