Verizon Headquarters


540 Broad Street

  • In 1928, New Jersey Bell erected its twenty story headquarters building in the burgeoning downtown area of Newark, NJ. Some 70 years later, M&E Engineers received commission to renovate this historic structure into a 21st century, state-of-the-art, efficient office complex.

  • M&E was instrumental in the planning, design and execution of this $50M renovation project. M&E designed new HVAC systems, replaced much of the plumbing, and provided all new electrical distribution systems.

  • M&E developed a plan that allowed this to be done while the building was continuously occupied. In addition, we obtained over $250,000 in Smart Start energy rebates for the owner.
