Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital Demolition and Site Restoration


Marlboro, New Jersey<br style='line-height:2px'>New Jersey Division of Property Management and Construction

The 400-acre Marlboro Psychiatric Hospital campus opened in 1931 and has been vacant since 1998. HAKS is a member of the construction management team providing services to the New Jersey Division of Property Management and Construction (DPMC) for the complete demolition of over 90 buildings and structures, including underground tunnels totaling over 1.14 million square feet. We are overseeing the contractor and coordinating the design team members during the construction phase of the $45 million project. Upon project completion, the State of New Jersey will transfer the property to Monmouth County. Much of the hospital grounds will be returned to open space with some new up-to-date facilities.

Many of the structures and tunnels scheduled for demolition include hazardous materials that require remediation and removal prior to the razing of the buildings. The project also involves the coordination of numerous utility abandonments and relocations. Several utilities must remain active in order for the treatment facility across Conover Road to remain in operation during demolition. Various utilities such as gas, water, sanitary sewer and electric require extensive coordination and permitting to allow for the safe removal of the structures and associated infrastructure.

HAKS is performing the following tasks while overseeing construction activities:

  • Coordinating scheduling and schedule compliance
  • Conducting regular bi-weekly progress meetings with agenda and minutes
  • Coordinating the submittal log to ensure quick turnaround on RFIs
  • Conducting daily site inspections to ensure compliance with contract documents and review payments
  • Conducting meetings with stakeholders, utility companies and the design team
  • Reviewing and tracking multiple New Jersey Department of Community Affairs permits to ensure continuous operations
  • Reviewing contractor quantities and approving invoices
  • Processing change order requests
