Preliminary designs for the school were provided by local architecture and engineering firms LAN Associates and CP Professional services, in collaboration with two other architecture firms. The new Lyndhurst Junior High School will serve the 7th, 8th and 9th grades, and provide relief and expansion opportunities to the existing high school and elementary schools. The approximately 110,000 square foot Junior High School will include a three story academic wing, a visual and performing arts theater, and a full size gymnasium with auxiliary gym, locker rooms, weight room and an athletic field. The academic facilities will include a state-of-the-art culinary arts facility and active learning classrooms. It will also provide for instruction in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Additional project highlights include a 21st century pedagogy, where students learn from doing rather than listening. The new facility proposes flexible classroom spaces where the teacher can rearrange furniture to adapt to their lesson plans. Desks and chairs can be moved together to form learning lab tables or informal gathering areas. The design takes daylighting strategies into consideration, where natural light is seen throughout the majority of classrooms and corridors. The new Lyndhurst Junior High School, a $50M project, is part of the Township’s campaign on Renewing our Schools and Community with a Dedication to Excellence. The new Junior High School replaces the 130-year-old Lincoln School as part of the redevelopment of Township facilities.
CP Professional Services Supports Will McHugh giving back through Growth International Volunteer Excursions
October 2016 - Sparta, New Jersey - Although he is just finishing his post-graduate College education, Will McHugh is already making a big difference in the lives of those who do not have clean drinking water and sanitary wastewater facilities.

He chose Environmental Engineering because of his love of nature and the outdoors and his strong desire to have an impact on those around him. Will is supporting an organization called Growth International Volunteer Excursions (GIVE) to build the necessary infrastructure to provide safe drinking water and sanitary facilities to a village in Tanzania. He will be travelling there this winter to work on the project. Will has been a member of our staff throughout his college career and we are supporting him. We welcome others to support him as well.

As such, we understand the importance of safe and plentiful clean water. However, as Will stated, “This infrastructure is all too often taken for granted in fully developed countries, but many in the world do not have access to clean drinking water. A plentiful supply of clean drinking water will increase their quality of life”. Will has interned at CP for several years and has been a valuable team member on several important projects. Most notably, Will was instrumental in the construction phase of a $10 million Water Reclamation Facility, which is now helping to maintain water quality in the Delaware River basin, a source of drinking water to 15 million people.
