1200 Intrepid at the Philadelphia Navy Yard is the newly completed precast concrete work of art designed by world-renowned starchitect Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). The front entrance façade gently curves inward while stretching outward creating a startling and gravity-defying visual that mimics the curved bows of the nearby battleships. The unique engineering requirements of the proj- ect meant that the gravity loads flowed directly to the ground and were not tied to the steel frame. Almost every piece of the front entrance façade is unique. This very complicated project presented a challenge that required an innovative solution using technical, engineering and creative exper- tise, and would not have been possible without the use of BIM and 3D modeling. For more information on this project and others visit us at www.highconcrete.com/news. “High Concrete saw our design as a wonderful opportunity to really show off their skills, talents and products. It has been a sincere joy to work with a group of precasters who are as engaged as they have been, willing to roll up their sleeves to work on solutions rather than seeing obstacles, and I am sure that they are proud of their efforts as much as we are.” Kai-Uwe Bergmann, AIA, RIBA, partner, BIG—Bjarke Ingels Group

11 Zabriskie St.

Jersey City, NJ — Cervelli Real Estate & Property Management announces the off market sale of 11 Zabriskie St. in the Heights section of Jersey City. The seller, who is a li- censed realtor, was looking to sell quickly in order to fulfill a 1031 obligation. Under a time crunch, we knew the expertise of Cervelli would be critical, and despite the fact of being a realtor, called and asked if we could help. Ironically enough, another client of the firm had just lost a deal, and needed to find a replacement. Within a matter or 36 hours, Cervelli Real Estate was able to find a buyer and negotiate acceptable terms to all parties. The transaction closed 30 days later. n
