Structure Tone provided construction management services for the 325,000sf, 10th floor and mezzanine phased renovation of Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s headquarters in Newark, NJ.
We oversaw complete renovation of Horizon BCBSNJ’s new workplace standards, including multiple conference rooms, pantries, private offices and open work areas. The project included custom millwork for the executive boardroom and a training center with glass-front conference rooms and Skyfold partitions.
Our team worked on half-floors at a time, ensuring the safety of the floor occupants as well as the construction team. We oversaw the LEED® Gold certification effort, including waste management allocation, air quality control program and management of the process and energy reduction requirements.

Looking back on our recently completed multi-year HQ renovation project, a number of important questions had to be answered correctly at the very start: How much will this cost? How long will this take? Where do you start? How can we do this in a building we live in? The most important question to answer right, however, was who will be the best partners to come along with us to assure this will be a successful ride. In 6 words, we can easily define why picking STI as our CM was one of the right decision— “Picking Structure Tone helped set the tone!” Through all the changes, directional shifts, weather related issues, etc. STI was by our side not just as a contractor, but as a valued partner to help assure we not only built what we needed but did so on a cost-effective and timely basis.”— Joseph Flock, AIA
