DEEM Enterprises today announced it has signed its first construction contract with Northstar Technologies Group, a pioneer of fiber reinforced polymer composite structural building systems, for its Renaissance at Bader Field redevelopment project. The strategic partnership is a crucial first step for the project, and marks the first large-scale sustainable project in the world utilizing advanced composite building technologies for energy efficiency, resiliency and sustainability.
Northstar delivers sustainable, cost-effective projects for clients nationwide, across a range of market sectors and building types. It offers a unique portfolio of products focused on sustainable building structures and systems, creating stronger, ultra-energy efficient and smarter building structures. Utilizing Northstar’s pioneering energy efficient technology, the commercial and residential construction of Renaissance at Bader Field will facilitate eco-conscious developments while negating any environmental deficit, bringing transformative industry and progressive models for sustainability that push the envelope for emerging green technologies.
The resilient and sustainable-planned community at Renaissance at Bader Field will be engineered to protect against natural threats, with the agility to adopt evolving technology. Renaissance at Bader Field will be built to LEED Platinum certifications standards, and act as a beacon of energy independence, integrating healthily and symbiotically with its natural and cultural surroundings.
“The Renaissance at Bader Field project is more than a redevelopment; it’s a catalyst for transformation, and for the future of Atlantic City,” said Erick Feishtans, CEO of DEEM Enterprises. “I am incredibly excited for this partnership with Northstar as we move forward in our ongoing commitment to the New Jersey Green Economy, and I’m confident that our work together will be transformative across the board.”
As part of its role in the redevelopment of Bader Field, Northstar will retrofit the current Skate Zone building into a 70,000 square foot temporary manufacturing facility, and upon completion of the project, Northstar will relocate to a permanent facility within the greater Atlantic City area. Per the terms outlined by DEEM Enterprises’ Memorandum of Understanding with Atlantic City, the SkateZone operation will also be relocated to an alternate site within Atlantic City. This move will be a boon for the local job economy. It will include minimum targets to utilize local companies and workers as well as WBE and MBE businesses during the construction phase, create thousands of substantial manufacturing and high-tech jobs, and provide training programs to various local labor unions participating in the project.
As the pioneer in sustainable and tech driven building methods, Northstar Technologies is reinventing the construction industry by using its Patented Advanced Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composite building systems which reduce construction costs, total cost of ownership and construction time. With all the natural disasters in the world today, high-performance building materials using reimagined construction systems and methods must be utilized to give us a fighting chance in protecting our loved ones, our environment & our global assets. As Mother Nature has shown us throughout our lifetimes, Homes and commercial buildings made with traditional materials like wood, steel and concrete are not equipped to survive natural disasters, degradation and natural processes over time and yet the construction industry has failed to utilize more resilient options. Northstar Technologies has shown that it can outlast traditional building materials, thereby lowering construction & maintenance costs over the life of the structure.
