Bristol Myers Squibb

Corporate Headquarters Expansion

Project Location: Lawrenceville, NJ
Client: Bristol-Myers Squibb
Completion Date: 2007

Project Challenges:

Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Corporate Headquarters has been expanded several times since 1986 to accommodate their overall master development plan. PDE was involved with several of their expansion elements from 1986 to 2002. The project required approvals from the Lawrence Township Planning Board, Mercer County, the New Jersey Department of Transportation, and various Regional Storm Water Management Authorities. The storm water management plans for the various project elements had to consider the limitations of the existing infrastructure and had to address impacts on an existing lake. In addition, the Township required no increase in Peak Hour traffic, even though the facility was increasing in size.

PDE Solutions:

    • PDE minimized infrastructure redevelopment costs by utilizing existing systems where practical.
    • PDE implemented such innovative storm water quality measures as infiltration and made adjustments to the existing lake’s outlet weir in order to properly manage the storm water.
    • To meet the Township’s peak hour traffic limitations, PDE employed a flex-time solution with a pre- and post-monitoring program to test the results, and was able to successfully achieve the Township’s criteria.


Through PDE’s innovative efforts, the client was able to obtain local and State approvals for the various expansions while minimizing costs.
