On August 21st, 2017, The College of Science and Mathematics at Montclair State University hosted an impromptu gathering for
#SolarEclipse2017, which attracted a few dozen spectators and participants utilizing various scientific apparatuses to view the partial solar eclipse in from the new LEED Gold Center for Environmental Life Science Building (nick named CELS for short). (You can see me running around in high speed in my khakis, blue shirt and brief case by clicking here. Working at a University has its perks!)
Not only was it was a fun event – It was great to see such a great crowd and camaraderie from a diverse group of students, faculty, staff, and visitors. It was a great opportunity for the campus community to come together for a great event. Science and the natural world connects us all and reminds us that we are not that different when it comes to who we are as human beings.

We are sharing a recent project we completed the design and it is currently under construction. As you can see it is quite an expansion to a modest home. We are happy to see it is on schedule and on budget and should be completed this summer.

Situated on more than 19 acres, CENTRA is ideally located within the heart of Metropark, offering close proximity to New Jersey Transit, The Garden State Parkway, New Jersey Turnpike, I-287 and Routes 1 and 27 and Newark International Airport.
“This is an exciting project for our community,” said Woodbridge Township (N.J.) Mayor John E. McCormac. “Woodbridge is one of the few towns in the state experiencing commercial growth and business expansion. The LEED certification of CENTRA is consistent with our commitment as a township to protect our environment. We support this project as well as Hampshire’s vision to bring America’s newest business park to Woodbridge.”
Hampshire is proud to pioneer a new trend in office development with its 110,000 SF Centra Metropark. A LEED certified building re-designed in a strikingly modern style by Kohn Pedersen Fox Associates.
CENTRA’s unique structure utilizes an asymmetrical tree-column and truss to support an extended fourth floor, providing a signature element for the project. A rectangular hole is carved in the center of the suspended fourth floor, allowing the sun to shower the ground-level grand entry plaza with light. Surrounding pyramidal landscape forms further distinguish the site“. Glass is the defining element for the design, inspiring openness and dynamics.
As a certified “green building,” CENTRA is a monumental example of sustainable design. Complying with stringent criteria, the building consumes less energy and water than traditional office spaces. As a result, the impact on the environment is significantly lessened. For tenants, however, the benefits are enormous.
