The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light The Night Celebration raised a tremendous $3.2 million dollars this year in New Jersey! The Morris County event, that Sweetwater participated in, was attended by thousands and so inspiring and uplifting. Our 10th place Corporate Team ranking of contributions in NJ, thanks to our friends, employees and subcontractors, is an effort to be proud of as a first time participant.
Best wishes, health and hope to all of the survivors, patients and care-givers this holiday season!
We are excited to launch Sweetwater’s Corporate Team fundraising for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) LIGHT THE NIGHT event in Morristown, NJ on October, 22, 2022..

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.
