BASF's North American headquarters building in Florham Park, NJ, has been named the fifth construction project in the United States and the first in New Jersey to achieve LEED double Platinum certification. The 325,000 square foot building, developed in partnership with the Rockefeller Group Development Corporation at The Green at Florham Park, achieved LEED certification for Commercial Interiors (CI) and Core & Shell (CS) from the U.S. Green Building Council. Platinum certification is the highest achievement attainable through the LEED green building certification program, which encourages and accelerates global adoption of sustainable green building and development practices. A suite of rating systems is used to recognize projects that implement strategies for better environmental and health performance.

Central Concrete Supply, a subsidiary of U.S. Concrete, has purchased the assets of Bode Gravel and Bode Concrete. Bode operates two ready mixed concrete plants, including one new portable plant, and 41 mixer trucks in the San Francisco area.
