On October 5, BAYADA Headquarters received the 2017 President’s Preservation Excellence Award from Preservation New Jersey (PNJ) for its rehabilitation of The John Buzby House, a historic property and the new BAYADA Headquarters building in Moorestown, NJ. The award was presented at a ceremony at the Glenmore Barn in Hopewell, NJ.
"BAYADA is honored to be recognized by PNJ," said BAYADA HQ Manager Janice Lovequist."BAYADA's founder and chairman, Mark Baiada, and the entire HQ team proudly support PNJ in their mission to preserve, protect, and promote the historic heritage of New Jersey’s richly diverse communities."
“It is a rare experience for a preservation architect to work with a company—especially one that has such a passion for preserving a historic building," said Annabelle Radcliffe-Trenner, principal at Historic Building Architects, LLC."
Instead of choosing a commercial building as their new home, BAYADA selected a building that needed to be revitazlized in the heart of their community. This concept aligns with the company's mission to help revitalize people at home.
PNJ is the only statewide organization dedicated to protecting the historic resources that exist throughout the state.This is the second preservation award and third overall recognition for BAYADA’s restoration work on The John Buzby House.
In addition, the HQ building received a 2017 design merit from the American Institute of Architects (AIA) of New Jersey for its restoration, as part of the AIA-NJ 2017 Design Competition. The competition recognizes design excellence in various architectural projects.
AIA is the professional organization that helps architects serve the public's needs and builds awareness of the role of architects and architecture in American society. Today, with headquarters in Washington, DC, and nearly 300 local chapters, the organization represents 70,000 licensed architects and associated professionals.
