he first—and only—time it happened to me, I just stared at my client in total disbelief. He’d just revealed that he’d had a $4,500 marketing plan written by someone else, not because they were more capable, more experienced, cheaper or more accessible—he’d always loved my work—but because “I didn’t know you did that!” At first I was angry at the client. How could he not know? But after a while, I realized I was really the one at fault—I simply hadn’t done my job well enough. And at that moment, I vowed to myself that I was going to do everything in my power to make sure I never heard those awful words again. Regardless of whether you provide a product, service or both, one of the first things you must do when starting in business is to identify, for yourself, exactly what it is you do. I realize that may sound overly simplistic, but let’s think about it for a minute.

For example, if you’re an architect, is it enough to tell people that you design buildings? What about the fact that you also do feasibility studies, help with site selection, assist in choosing and coordinating contractors, perform needs analyses, do ADA compliance inventories, offer space planning, interior design, budgeting and a host of other services? Aren’t those legitimate services that you’d like to sell also? The obvious point I’m making is that you need to specifically define for others all the facets of your work. Too often, we’re guilty of assuming that others completely understand what we

do. One reason this happens is because so much of our time is spent communicating with our peers and colleagues, who likely do understand the true scope of our work. But our clients and potential clients may not. So, what do we do? We tell ’em! Let’s begin with something very basic—your business card. Does it tell someone what you do? If the name of your firm is something like “Smith Associates”—it doesn’t! Even if the card says “Smith & Co.

MULTIFAMILY FINANCING By David I. Tesler, Esq., Real Diligence, LLC

Giving Due Diligence its due in the process of buying multi-family real estate

M

ulti-family investments are currently d o m i n a t i n g m a rket activity. Young people are preferring to rent while families losing their homes to foreclosure have no option but to David I. Tesler rent. Already there has been a sharp decline in the rental vacancy rate to 6.2% in first quarter of 2011 and a doubledigit rent hike is being antici-

pated by economists over the next two years in the hottest markets. This has investors flocking to buy rental apartment buildings. Buying commercial real estate may be glamorous, but the financial due diligence needed to do it wisely is not. Still, financial due diligence is essential for basically any commercial real estate acquisition today. There is no such thing as a “small” acquisition that can afford to forgo a rigorous financial due diligence review, and there is no commercial distressed asset acquisition

that is “simple” or risk-free. The current commercial real estate market involves assets typically ranging from $10 to $50 million, but can fluctuate from $5 million to $500 million. This is especially true of the multi-family investments. Analyzing past operations in order to project future property performance is never a black or white endeavor – it’s very grey. Evaluating the true value of a garden apartment building or multi-family midrise is a complex, multi-phase undertaking that often eludes complete clarity. A wide array

of variables conceal the true value of a property. How can a buyer be sure that they are getting the benefit of their bargain and avoid the financial and legal pitfalls that lie at every stage of the process? Although risk is an unavoidable element in any commercial real estate purchase, the stakes are even higher when buying distressed assets in today’s erratic market. The only way to limit risk is by conducting adequate financial due diligence on the asset. Whether purchased through short sale or by buying notes or bank-owned (REO) properties,

every distressed asset is unique and requires a multi-step process of examination, including valuing the note, valuing the real estate and conducting due diligence on the loan, property and seller. Rushing to purchase troubled assets before conducting thorough and comprehensive due diligence can all too often lead investors to pay inflated prices and eventually lose money. Cash-rich funds have been especially susceptible to this mistake. The market has changed drastically. Assumptions utilized in the past are no longer accurate (and possibly never were.) Instead of accepting underwriting based on past expectations, it is important to find the “true value” of the asset. The primary task, then, is to gain a clear financial picture of the asset today and uncover any current or potential trouble spots. This is accomplished through a comprehensive financial due diligence review and an honest and conservative market analysis. It is a process that few companies are qualified and staffed to conduct in-house. Many investors are turning to financial due diligence specialists for help. In addition to a market analysis, financial due diligence specialists conduct comprehensive financial audits, compiling and interpreting many layers of documentation within sharply restricted time frames. This process includes: validating and verifying all rents, as well as any income from additional sources, such as parking, vending machines and the like; validating and verifying all expenses; these are generally more numerous and variable than income items and can include outlays for anything from snow removal to elevator replacement; establishing the historical record of income and expenses in order to verify the accuracy of the sellers’ projections for future budget and cash flow; and reviewing bank statements to confirm that income is reflected in statements. The data is then compiled and presented in a comprehensive report with a clear and concise executive summary. When specifically conducting due diligence on a distressed note, it becomes necessary to conduct multi-layered due diligence. The first step is to organize and abstract the loan continued in the Aug. 26 issue

At One Bergen County Plaza in Hackensack, NJ saving taxpayers $1 million in energy costs

Pfister Energy installs customized photovoltaic system on the top level of the parking deck

H

ACKENSACK, NJ — Pfister Energy recently installed a customized photovoltaic system on the top level of the parking deck at One Bergen County Plaza. What was once underutilized space will now generate electricity for the parking deck and the adjacent Bergen County Administration building. The system is expected to generate 690,690 kWh of energy in the first year

of operation. Comprised of 2,730 Trina 230-watt PV modules, the 627.900 kW (DC) solar array is affixed to an overhead structural steel canopy. This unique canopy structure maximizes parking space without taking up existing spaces or the need to install columns. It also keeps cars cooler in the hot summer months and reduces the “heat island” effect of parking surfaces such as this.

AUGUST 12 - 25, 2011

The Energy House The system was installed at to a 15-year Power Purchase no cost to Bergen County due Agreement with SunLight

General Capital. Over the 15-year period, taxpayers will save an estimated $1,080,000 in energy savings. The energy produced by the system will yield estimated pollution offsets equivalent to deterring an estimated 14.4 million lbs. of carbon emissions, saving 15,198 barrels of oil, or taking 1,419 passenger vehicles off the road. This project is a win-win for the County, not only in terms of monetary savings, but also by establishing the County of Bergen as a role model for other counties and municipalities in the state to adopt renewables and implement clean energy practices. ■

Tower is first building in Morristown to receive certification MORRISTOWN, NJ – Headquarters Plaza, the class A commercial buildings in downtown Morristown with 700,000+ s/f of office space, recently received ENERGY STAR certification from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for the East Tower of its facility. The environmentally-significant designation means the East Tower meets strict energy efficiency guidelines set by the EPA and ranks among the top 25 percent of buildings in its category for energy conservation. Headquarters Plaza is the first building in Morristown to receive ENERGY STAR certification, according to the EPA. The tower is equipped with a sophisticated energy management system designed to optimize energy efficiency while maximizing tenant comfort. High thermal comfort and efficiency, indoor air quality, lighting levels and energy performance ratings helped the building score a 79 on the ENERGY STAR rating system. That places Headquarters Plaza in the top 21st percentile in energy conservation of office buildings nationwide.

Headquarters Plaza ENERGY STAR certified buildings must use 35 percent less energy and emit 35 percent less carbon dioxide than average buildings in its category. Americans reduced their energy bills by $18 billion in 2010 and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by the equivalent of those of 34 million vehicles by participating in the ENERGY STAR program and using ENERGY STAR certified products. Headquarters Plaza is widely regarded for its all-under-oneroof environment. Amenities

and services inside Headquarters Plaza include a full-time corporate concierge, upscale restaurants Ming and Mehndi, Bright Horizons Daycare Center, Hand & Stone Massage and Facial Spa, The Club – a 41,000 s/f state-of-the-art fitness center, ten-screen cinema, a sundries shop, dry cleaner and 256-room Hyatt hotel and conference center.

USGBC NJ is pleased to announce that the U.S. Green Building Council has just issued a press release that commends President Obama for launching the Better Buildings Challenge, a White House driven program that will ramp up significant commitments to green building. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced 14 initial partners that are committed to the Better Buildings Challenge at the Clinton Global Initiative America meeting in Chicago. “Once again, the President is taking action and inspiring action in the building industry so we can seize the tremendous opportunity in green buildings. We know we could be saving $130 billion a year if we had greener, more efficient buildings and create nearly 1 million jobs in the process,” said Rick Fedrizzi, president, CEO and founding chair, USGBC. “Through this dynamic new program announced at President Clinton’s CGI America event, we can begin to FLORENCE BLOCK scale and accelerate the green retrofit industry, and ultimately stimulate our economy by saving energy, saving people money, and putting America back to work.” The Better Buildings Challenge is part of the Better Buildings Initiative that President Obama launched in February to catalyze private sector investment in commercial building upgrades and make America’s commercial buildings 20 percent more efficient over the next decade. The initial partners in the Better Buildings Challenge include private sector companies, financial institutions and local governments. Our entire organization is absolutely committed to engaging our 16,000 members, our 170, 000 LEED Professional Credential holders and our 79 chapters across the country to advance the Challenge and encourage the use of our LEED Green Building Rating System as a pathway to ensuring the immediate, measureable and proven results this Challenge is meant to create. More than 114,000 new jobs, many which would come from the hard-hit construction industry, would be created through the Better Buildings Initiative, according to a new analysis released by The Real Estate Roundtable, the U.S. Green Building Council, and the Natural Resources Defense Council. On a local note, this Monday, 7/11 I have the honor or presenting Vision Equities, a NJ Developer and Property Management firm with a LEED Silver Plaque for the certification of their Mountain Lakes Property. Unique is the drive of NJ Developers, who recognize the triple bottom line (People, Profits, Planet) as an integral component of their organizations’ future. I welcome you to become involved in USGBC NJ and help us shape the direction of our organization in establishing and advocating for best practices in the green building industries in our state.

By David Wood, The IDKYDT Syndrome . . . continued from page 2A of a choo-choo train? I’m sure you get my point. The average business card has plenty of room, in addition to the obvious name, address, phone, fax, cellphone, e-mail and web address, to include a few words such as “electrical engineers, specializing in power plants.” (And don’t forget the back of the card; it’s an excellent place for additional copy.) Another option is to include a short, bulleted list of products or services. For example, my business card carries the words “copywriting/public relations/ marketing consulting” across the top. That may not include everything I do, but at least if someone pulls out my card six months from now they’ll have a clue as to who I am and what services I offer. Any printed materials you distribute or online information, including advertising, should

give as much of a picture of your scope of products/services as possible. Brochures, websites, newsletters and press releases are all places where this information should appear, but often doesn’t. The more often you repeat the message, the less likely you are to fall prey to the IDKYDT Syndrome. Even when communicating with others verbally, make it a point to cite examples of the variety of work you’ve done, so your listener is clear as to the potential things you might be able to do for him. With a little practice, you can do this so smoothly and naturally that people are unaware of this marketing tactic, yet your message is being delivered loud and clear. If you add a new product or service, make lots of noise about it via press releases, letters to existing clients and prospects, and the like. Shout it from the rooftops. No one is going to buy your

new item or service unless they somehow know you offer it. Use your imagination and you’ll find dozens of other ways to ensure people become knowledgeable about what you do. The key points to remember: 1) Don’t ever assume that the world is aware of your existence and of the scope of your products and/or services; 2) Tell them, over and over again, often, all the things you do; and 3) Never stop doing #2! If you follow these simple rules, which are even more important in tough economic times such as these, maybe you’ll be fortunate enough never to have to pound your head against a wall after hearing a client say, “I didn’t know you did that!” David W. Wood is a Deering, NH based copywriter, newsletter publisher and marketing consultant specializing in the construction industry. ■

tion was represented in-house by Andrew Burke, senior vice president. The sale price was $32.6 million, or $154 psf. As part of the acquisition, Terreno assumed a mortgage loan. The property is currently 100% leased to H.D. Smith, a privately held wholesaler of medical and healthcare products that utilizes the site as a regional distribution center. “This is clearly a best-inclass asset that has what the institutional investment community is looking for today—quality construction,

tremendous floor loads, stateof-the-art ceiling heights, and a strong, long-term tenant for which it is a mission-critical facility,” said Bernhaut, vice chairman of Cushman & Wakefield. “It also has a prime location straddling the Meadowlands and Port submarkets, two of the strongest markets in the region. “This offering attracted significant interest,” Merin said. “Terreno demonstrated deep market knowledge, recognizing the unique qualities of the asset, and more importantly transacted as promised.” ■

Bogota property trades to settle estate of private owner

Pine of Gebroe-Hammer Associates completes $3.6 million sale BOGOTA, NJ — In one of New Jersey’s highest barrier-toentry multi-family investment markets, Gebroe-Hammer Associates has arranged the $3.6 million sale of 44 units. Senior VP Greg Pine represented the seller’s estate trustee in the disposition of 112-128 East Fort Lee Rd. and identified the buyer. Gebroe-Hammer was retained as the broker, after another firm was unable to sell the property, and arranged the trade within 75 days. The seller, East Fort Lee Road Corp., owned the building for more than 50 years and was active in the New York metropolitan area’s multi-family investment market. In addition to a diverse New Jersey portfolio, holdings included the Apthorp, a landmark apartment-residence on New York City’s Upper East Side. “The East Fort Lee Road property was a very unique opportunity for the buyer to acquire a mid-rise complex as part of an estate sale in the heart of Bergen County,” said Pine, who is a Bergen County market specialist. “Investors are typically drawn to these types of properties due to the area’s strong working-class family demographic, proxim-

112-128 East Fort Lee Rd. ity to employment centers like New York City and access to mass transit links and the area’s highway infrastructure, all of which support steady occupancy rates.” The three-and-a-half-story apartment building features a mix of 9 studio, 30 one-bedroom and 4 two-bedroom units. Palisade Ave. is a few blocks to the west and East Main Street/Degraw Avenue is to the north. In addition, Queen Anne Road and its retail and dining establishments are within a short walking distance. Six NJ Transit bus routes serve

the area, offering service to the George Washington Bridge Bus Terminal, Port Authority in Midtown Manhattan as well as Jersey City. The borough connects to I-80 to the south and Route 4 to the north. This latest transaction follows two recent Gebroe-Hammer trades in Bergen County. David Oropeza, executive vice president, and Pine orchestrated the $1.9 million sale of 19 one-bedroom units in Fairview. Pine also closed a $750,000 note, encumbered by a 6,000 s/f office building, in Fort Lee. “With very few – if any – new multi-family construction starts in Bergen County, and soaring demand among young professionals, couples and families for quality apartment-rental living, investors are vying for the ‘rare’ properties that do come to market,” said Ken Uranowitz, managing director. “Because of the supply/demand gap, low-interest-rate environment and near-100 percent occupancy rates in Bergen County, long-time owners are opting to sell their suburban and urban garden, mid- and high-rise apartment buildings and complexes at prices and cap rates similar to that of just a few years ago.” ■

The Berger Organization, which manages and operates 570 Broad St., currently is fitting out Baldassare & Mara LLC’s new space on the building’s ninth floor. “Newark is the perfect location for our firm because of the city’s proximity to federal court, the busiest county courts in the state, and mass transit to New York City,” said the firm’s Managing Partner, Jennifer Mara, Esq. “We were quickly sold on 570 Broad given its location, its modern infrastructure, and The Berger Org.’s willingness to craft a lease that fit our needs.” 570 Broad St. includes 200,000 s/f of office space with ground-floor retail. ■

who said “We were proud to deliver a sound deal that generated positive cash flow and future growth potential”. Situated in a dynamic countryside location in suburban Somerset County, the two-story multifamily garden complex was built on highly visible 5.5 acre landscaped tract featuring a combination of one bedroom and den suites plus twobedroom multi-level layouts with amenities that include abundant on-site parking. According to DeGennaro, the catalyst for the success of the transaction was owed to

the strength of the G/S Team to structure an innovative investment package designed to attract investors with substantial resources. DeGennaro further noted that the rural multifamily market has remained resilient in spite of the economic weakness being experienced in many other regions of the tri-state area. Legal details for the Purchaser were handled by Andrew Kaplan, Esq. of the Sill, Cummis & Gross, a Princeton based law firm while the Seller was counseled by Robert E. David LLC. ■

“The creation of the new interactive web-based map illustrates both the experience and commitment to this asset class. We are largest owner of industrial buildings in the northern New Jersey region, poised to accommodate any tenant’s needs,” said Gus Milano, executive VP of finance and leasing at Hartz Mountain Industries. “In addition to the vital location and accessibility offerings of our North Jersey locations, PSE&G is installing a new 69 KV power line, which will offer an abundance of power options to Hartz’s properties in both Secaucus and North Bergen areas.” For security purposes, both corporate users and third party providers prefer sites outside of urban cities, but the data centers require the infrastructure of an established city. In the case of NYC businesses, Secaucus is an outstanding location due to accessibility, power and fiber. Based on the requirements data centers necessitate, Hartz Mountain has designed the interactive map detailing each property. When a user clicks on a building it will showcase the square footage, electrical capacity, available fiber/telecom providers, floor load, ceiling height, parking, location/access, and additional features along with a detailed brochure of each property. Potential tenants may submit their requirements for data center space to Hartz Mountain leasing professionals via the website for an immediate response. ■

EW JERSEY — Carl Berger Associates (CBA) has procured $3.9 million in mortgage financing for the purchase of a 69,000 s/f building located in Cranford. T h e B o rr o w e r , a David Berger wholesaler of women’s undergarments and other assorted products, was renting two facilities in Linden, prior to the purchase. By consolidating two locations into one modern and efficient facility, they will reduce their overhead expense and improve inventory control. The property’s proximity to the sea ports, Newark Liberty Airport and major highways enable the Company to easily access its distribution channel. Carl Berger Associates negotiated the loans with TD Bank and the New Jersey Economic Development Au-

thority (EDA). The financing provided for a five-year fixed rate of interest and an 80 percent loan to value. The first and second mortgages were at historical lows. David Berger of Carl Berger Associates said, “We were very pleased with the low interest rates and the lenders’ willingness to extend financing during this challenging economic time.” In another transaction, Carl Berger Associates arranged a $2.1 million 7(a) Small Business Administration loan program for the acquisition of a modern 110,000 s/f building in Monroe Township, New Jersey. The financing deal consisted of an interest rate of six percent with a 25 year payout. CBA represented the Borrower, a vegetarian food manufacturer moving from Sunnyside Queens, New York. The Borrower outgrew its original 10,000 square foot space due to substantial business growth in recent years. The newly acquired

facility houses the Company’s headquarters and current manufacturing facility. The Company plans to purchase additional manufacturing equipment as well as refrigerator and freezer space. Once the new equipment is placed in service, the Company expects to add on 70 new employees within a two year period. Since 1978, Carl Berger Associates has negotiated, structured and coordinated commercial financing deals for a variety of clients, including manufacturers, distributors, trucking companies, warehousing facilities, import/export, and non-forprofit organizations in the tri-state area. Their longstanding relationships with banks, local, state and federal government agencies combined with their customized approach to financing solutions has enabled them to help hundreds of satisfied clients procure the funds needed to grow their businesses. ■

CENTRAL NEW JERSEY In New Jersey’s Affordable Housing Market

Community Investment Strategies pursues today’s opportunities

N

EPTUNE, NJ — Barbara Schoor, vice president of Community Investment Strategies (CIS), Inc, recently addressed how affordable housing contributes toward the revitalization of New Jersey’s urban and suburban housing markets at a breakfast meeting hosted by the Shore Builders Association of Central NJ (SBACNJ). CIS, based in Lawrenceville, is a fully integrated real estate organization specializing in multi-family housing, including 55+, senior housing and mixed-use redevelopments,

Barbara Schoor, VP, serves as panelist at Shore Builders Meeting

as well as market-rate and affordable housing. Affordable housing is an integral part of the overall real estate recovery in New Jersey, according to Schoor. “Recently, there has been a lack of affordable housing development in the state,” she explained. “A combination of factors have contributed toward this shortfall, including the residential housing slump. General uncertainty associated with current state policy and how to incorporate affordable housing into New Jersey neighborhoods also

exists.” In her role at CIS, Schoor manages the company’s multifamily development projects, which primarily involve lowincome, tax-credit units for young adults, families, seniors and individuals with special needs. “The market for these units, which declined in the aftermath of the financial crisis, is gaining renewed strength at a time when there is heightened demand and need in communities hit especially hard by the residential housing crisis,” Schoor added. “Communities are still re-

quired to provide their fair share of the affordable housing needs according to the Fair Housing Act. But, because of several complex factors, many New Jersey township officials are unfamiliar with their obligations and builders are unsure of what to build to satisfy these requirements. This confusion has resulted in little-to-no development activity.” CIS has been helping public officials and local residents navigate the affordable housing maze since 1994. The for-profit, certified WomanOwned Business Enterprise (WBE) offers in-house finance, development, construction and management services as an extension of its commitment to build value-added communities. The company’s broad spectrum of multi-family properties, ranging from garden apartments to mid- and hirise complexes, include more than 2,000 apartment-rental units valued in excess of $350 million. Established by Christiana Foglio, founder/owner and chief executive officer, CIS is widely acknowledged for its dedication to developing the most appropriate low-to-moderate housing options. ■

IDGEFIELD PARK, NJ — Newmark Knight Frank Capital Group announced the sale of 105 Challenger Road, a class A office building located in Ridgefield Park, Bergen County, New Jersey. LNR New Jersey Partners, Inc. awarded Newmark Knight Frank with the assignment to manage, lease and sell the property, formerly owned by Mack-Cali. two teams within Newmark Knight Frank combined forces to drive home the transaction and maximize value for LNR. Richard Madison, principal, combined his team of tenant and agency professionals with Newmark Knight Frank’s Tri-State Capital Group to provide a full service approach to LNR. “This was a real team effort, involving not just Newmark Knight Frank and LNR Partners, but the surrounding community as well,” Madison remarks. “LNR Partners is an exceptional company to work with, in terms of its professional approach. We think the transaction foretells very healthy market conditions for Bergen and neighboring counties.” “We were extremely happy with the outcome of this transaction,” said Jacklene Chesler, director for the Newmark Knight Frank Capital Group. “The building traded near $60 psf. The adjacent building, 85 Challenger Rd., traded for $44 psf in 2008—just as commercial real estate prices started to soften. We believe that this sale is an indicator of better market conditions for owners looking to trade their assets.” The nine-story, 150,000 s/f class A office tower was originally developed in 1992 by Kajima as a built to suit for Samsung Electronics’ U.S. headquarters, and features a two-story lobby with high-end interior finishes, a full-service cafeteria and a five-level parking garage. The property is part of Overpeck Centre, a 60acre mixed-use business park that offers a total of 1,017,430 s/f of premium office space. The buyer/user will be occupying approximately twenty five percent of the space and target other corporate tenants for the balance of the building,” said Richard Mirliss and Hope Brodsky, managing directors on the team. ■

Business Incentives Practice

Lee Winter re-joins Cushman & Wakefield

E

AST RUTHERFORD, NJ — Lee Winter has re-joined commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield, Inc., as a director in its Global Business Consulting Group’s Lee Winter Business Incentives Practice. He brings nearly three decades of industry experience – including more than 15 years in the location advisory services arena – to his new position. Winter is working in coordination with Cushman & Wakefield’s leasing professionals on tenant representation assignments, negotiating and acquiring economic incentives from various government economic development agencies. His geographic concentration will be Northeastern U.S. He previously served in the same capacity at Cushman & Wakefield from 1998 to 2002, during which time he procured more than $50 million in economic incentives for the firm’s

clients. “Overseas and domestic competition has created an environment in which economic incentives are a key factor in a company’s real estate decision,” Winter said. “At the same time, as state and local governments work to position themselves to attract and retain business, they are operating under tight budget constraints. Our job is to find opportunities and develop the best solutions for our clients.” Winter’s background also includes leasing, construction management and development. Most recently, he worked at the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYCEDC), where he was responsible for attracting and retaining large corporations to New York City. There, he specialized in negotiating economic incentives packages that included capital grants, sales tax abatements, real estate tax exemptions, energy discounts and IDA Bond allocations. While at NYCEDC, Winter worked on many of the largest discretionary economic incentive packages involving

headquarters relocations and new development transactions, including the headquarters transactions for Goldman Sachs, Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch and other public-private partnerships. He also served as director of leasing and was responsible for NYCEDC’s 4 million-square-foot portfolio of industrial, office and retail properties. “Lee is among the most knowledgeable professionals in his niche,” said Gualberto “Gil” Medina, Cushman & Wakefield’s New Jersey executive managing director. “As Cushman & Wakefield works to strengthen its position as a strategic partner for clients, his skills set provides tremendous advantage. We welcome him back to the private sector.” Winter earned an MBA in finance from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Denison University in Ohio. He is a licensed salesperson in New York and a member of the International Council of Shopping Centers. ■

n July 28th, members of ICREW NJ came together on a warm summer evening in downtown Summit to learn about wine, enjoy delicious food, network with friends and colleagues – and most importantly, raise hundreds of dollars for the benefit of victims of domestic violence. The ICREW NJ Philanthropy Committee organized and hosted the special Wine Tasting and Dinner Event to benefit Dottie’s House, a transitional housing facility designed to aid women and children who have survived domestic violence. Dottie’s House, which is located in Ocean County, provides private housing and essential services to families in recovery. The money raised by ICREW NJ at this event enables Philanthropy Committee members to purchase low-cost backpacks and school supplies which will be distributed by Dottie’s House to benefit children in need. The evening in Summit kicked off with wine tasting, appetizers and an introduction to the origins of various wine varieties at The Wine List of Summit, where participants were educated and entertained by shop owner Ivan Ruiz and sommelier Neil Rodriquez.

“Members only” gain “The Lutron Experience”

Crew Lehigh Valley tours Lutron World Headquarters

C

OOPERSBURG, PA - In an exclusive “members only” event CREW LV PA visited the world headquarters of Lutron, the leader in the lighting controls industry and toured “THE LUTRON EXPERIENCE”. The 2,000 s/f show room replicates the most modern of 21st Century homes, and demonstrates a range of products that both enhance the home environment and result in energy savings. The tour was led by Manny Ferris, LEED AP, the manager of the experience center who noted that worldwide, Lutron products saved 10 billion dollars in energy savings in 2010 for commercial and residential users. “Smart systems” are programmed to recognize sunrise, sunset and the day of the week to

adjust to lighting needs. Blinds, known as shading systems, can automatically adjust to promote “daylight harvesting”, reducing artificial lighting needs. Every space in the Lutron Experience center features elegant seeTouch keypads, which can change the ambiance of a room with a touch of a button. The center also features The Ultimate Home Theater Experience showcase, which integrates the power of Lutron lighting controls with audio/video system. Many lighting and shading systems can be retrofitted into existing buildings with just “patching and painting,” according to Manny. With the installation of Lutron systems in the New York Time building, the news giant saved 72 percent below the original power density. The news giant experienced a return on investment within 18 months of the installation. n
