The following are some examples of our unusual projects
1. Tuna Processing Plant – Fair Lawn, NJ
The Ives Architecture Studio designed a tuna-processing plant in Fair Lawn, New Jersey for RD Foods Americas. RD Foods is based in the Philippines, Indonesia and Papua, New Guinea. Tuna is shipped at low temperature from the Pacific Ocean, through the Panama Canal, to Port Newark and eventually is processed at our 100,000 SF foot facility designed by our staff where it is cooked, canned and boxed and then shipped out throughout the region.
2. Multi-Faith Chapel – Paramus, NJ
3. Rockland Home for Heroes
4. A Barn in Iowa
The Ives Studio designed a barn structure in a remote area in Lovilla, Iowa that is 60 miles from Des Moines and the nearest full-size supermarket. This project involves a vocational school and an apartment on a 150-acre farm. The municipality only provides electricity. Heating fuel needs to be brought to the site as does well water pumped from the ground and on-site septic is provided. We like the fact there is no formal zoning board. However, this is a project built in the undeveloped rolling hills of Iowa, perfect for the cows and goats. We worked with local professionals to implement the project.
5. Bison-Elk Facility
6. Radburn Building – Fire Rehabilitation
7. George Washington Bridge – Security Barriers
8. World Trade Center – Electrical Switchgear Building
9. Tuxedo Park Industrial Building
10. The Aquaculture School Built on the Foundations of an abandoned water treatment plant.
11. Apartments Built Above Medical Office
All our clients are attempting to maximize the value of their properties. We designed two apartments built above a medical office. The Ives Architecture Studio took the project form the initial design through the Planning Board approval and to construction. This is a “mixed-use “project that requires experienced design professionals to secure approvals and to successfully complete the construction documents.
12. A building design to withstand the Passaic River overflowing its banks.
