Sweetwater Construction Corp.’s efforts toward environmental responsibility have earned recognition in the CERC community.
CERC is a certification program that aims to promote environmentally responsible contractors by helping them stand out from the competition. Contractors can become certified by establishing an environmental risk management plan through broadened pollution coverage and training employees on environmental best practices. “A CERC certificate can reduce the time project owners and general contractors spend verifying insurance requirements and demonstrate that a company has trained their employees on Pollution Prevention Practices,” said Darren Berg, president of Environmental Risk Professionals.
ENR New York posted their Top Contractor survey results in July with Sweetwater Construction positioned at #40 of the 58 firms reporting. Our 2021 fiscal year revenue was just under $100 million. Sweetwater management was excited to only experience a 4% decrease in volume from FY 20 to FY 21, as an 8 – 10% decrease was forecasted based on pandemic impact in the country. Through proactive management and communication with various building departments, we were able to keep several more projects active than expected.
JW Living’s Arbor Village at Smithville, NJ is highlighted in the survey as the largest project to break ground in 2021. The three-story senior living building, totaling 112,000 square feet with an 8,000 square-foot courtyard, will offer 130 units of memory care and assisted living studios. It is the latest of many ground up and renovation projects performed for this client.

Message from Sweetwater President: Re-start of Construction
To Team Sweetwater, regarding start of all construction, from Ron Witt, President & CEO:
As we begin the transition of various businesses reopening, I continue to be impressed with the dynamic abilities of our great company.

ABC-NJ 2019 Excellence in Construction Awards Once again, Sweetwater has been recognized by the Associated Builders & Contractors of New Jersey for quality in merit shop construction. The organization distinguishes projects that are distinguishable for features, complexities, innovations and cost-effectiveness based on expertise.
“Best of the Best” (Eagle Award) for an Institutional project went to our Trinity Hall High School Addition project! Phase 2 of the master plan was the construction of a formidable addition, to transform the building it into a premier preparatory high school. The client entity included the school headmaster and board members, who themselves were tasked with overseeing a construction project that absolutely needed to finish on time and on budget. Sweetwater was awarded Phase 2 based on our precious success in Phase 1, and competitive pricing. We committed to deliver the same cost and schedule accomplishments, and team members, for a January 2019 grand opening celebration and new semester.
The entire Team gets an “A” for a positive commitment to working together respectfully and delivering an academic building that impresses all who enter.
A Merit Award was bestowed on the IT Cosmetics headquarters renovation in Jersey City. Operating on the 9th and 10th floors of an occupied, waterfront hi-rise presented the need for creative logistics, material movement, and debris elimination. Because the client’s beauty industry demands perfection in its visuals, there was an expectation that their newest environment should reflect the same. The myriad of client entities and specialty consultants, along with the glossy designs and shimmering finishes, required careful attention to construction detail, with coordination and precision in the work itself. The Sweetwater team managed and executed all changes and challenges with professionalism and skill, making this makeover a winner for everyone involved!
