Construction Expertise
Goodrich has vast experience in the development of all types of commercial property and in recent years has re-developed a number of its properties originally constructed in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. Prime examples are the complete redevelopment and repositioning of the Essex Mall in West Caldwell, New Jersey and the faηade and canopy renovations at shopping centers in Burbank, IL, Baton Rouge, LA, and LaVale, MD. Pictures of some of these projects including photographs during all phases of the redevelopment can be viewed by clicking here.

At the flagship property in the Goodrich Portfolio – Executive Center, located in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey - Goodrich implemented a three year major capital improvement project. This complete renovation included new wall covering and carpeting throughout the building, renovation of the main lobby, and replacement and reconstruction of the building entrance. As part of the project all bathrooms were renovated and new elevator cabs installed. High Tech CCTV surveillance equipment was also strategically placed throughout the building. Executive Center is now considered one of the premier office locations in the "Billion Dollar Mile"” stretch of Route 9W in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey. Goodrich also completed similar renovation and construction projects at two office buildings in Lyndhurst, New Jersey, and, as a result, was able to obtain solid profits when these properties were sold shortly thereafter.

As a result of this experience and expertise, Goodrich is uniquely qualified to handle and oversee these types of redevelopment projects. Construction services provided by Goodrich include preparation of preliminary plans and renderings for submission to an architect, supervision of the preparation of complete plans and specifications for the project, preparation of a bid package, and negotiation with qualified general contractors. As a result of its national presence, Goodrich has cultivated and maintained excellent working relationships with various general contractors located throughout the United States. Working in conjunction with the project architect, Goodrich remains involved throughout all stages of the municipal approval process to insure that all building permits, inspections, approvals, and final occupancy documentation are obtained in a timely manner. Goodrich personnel work closely with the project architect and attend project meetings, providing suggestions and most importantly answering all questions necessary to complete each project expediently and within budget.
