WEST ORANGE, N.J. — The Gale Construction Company has completed a 13,000-square-foot addition and renovation at Solomon Schechter Day School of Essex & Union, located at 118 Pleasant Valley Way in West Orange. Construction consisted of a new addition at the school’s entrance that includes offices and a three-story glass tower. Interior renovations included a new security station, administrative office spaces and science labs. Construction had previously been completed, but a garbage truck collided into the facility soon afterward, causing the need to repair the exterior and the new science labs before the start of the fall term. The project architect was Livingston, N.J.-based Rotwein & Blake Associated Architects. Gale Construction is a subsidiary of Mack-Cali Realty Corp.
