Minneapolis-based The Opus Group has recently been awarded a contract to design and build a new 250,000-square-foot corporate headquarter campus for Church & Dwight Co., Inc., in the Princeton, N.J., area.
An investment group led by Founders Properties, L.L.C. will own the building under a long-term lease with Church & Dwight.
The campus will include two 125,000-square-feet Class-A, energy-efficient office buildings that will be designed and constructed with sustainable practices and elements. The buildings will be connected to allow for employee engagement and interaction. Construction is slated to begin in mid- October, and the buildings are expected to be completed by the end of 2012. This project will be the fourth in the PrincetonSouth Corporate Center.
“We are extremely pleased to be selected as a partner by Church & Dwight Co., Inc., to design and build a customized solution and bring to life the company’s vision for a new corporate headquarters,” said Dave Menke, senior vice president and general manager of Opus Development Corporation.
Church & Dwight Co., Inc., founded in 1846, manufactures and markets a wide range of personal care, household and specialty products under the ARM & HAMMER brand name and other trademarks. Church & Dwight has more than 1,000 employees in New Jersey. About half of Church & Dwight’s New Jersey employees will work at the new corporate headquarters following its completion.
