NJ Corporate Headquarters Transformation
In 2008, an international pharmaceutical company began looking in New Jersey for a location to expand its North American headquarters.

But that was before a $220 million renovation completely transformed it. Playing a huge role in the structure's new look and new lease on life were metal claddings and entry systems from Alcoa Architectural Products and Kawneer, respectively.
