Our passion is making solar electricity affordable – an investment grade proposition that is both easy and compelling. We recognize that the biggest barriers to solar adoption are financial, and we are market leaders in solving those problems for our customers.

Unlike many vendors that have just gotten into the business or dabble in renewable energy as a sideline, solar is all we do. Our team of in-house experts are a one-stop source for a well integrated solar solution. We are directly responsible to our customers for all aspects of their project.

Founded in 2002 and based in NJ, the Sun Farm Network is one of the most experienced solar power development companies in the region. We are widely recognized for our technical excellence, innovation, deep experience with state programs and incentives, professionalism, and integrity. The company has installed hundreds of systems in NJ, and currently manages the largest aggregated base of solar systems on the east coast.

Our engineering team brings over 90 years of professional experience to every job, and our in-house installation teams have completed hundreds of projects on homes, businesses, houses of worship, and farms. This depth and experience gives our customers confidence that they will be getting the right system, at a competitive price, with the lowest possible construction hassle and economic risk.

Sun Farm Network has been a leader in the Mid-Atlantic solar industry since its inception. We were the first company to offer solar financing solutions in the Garden State, and we sold the first NJ Solar Renewable Energy Credits in 2004. The company has been recognized as Clean Market Innovator of the Year by the NJ BPU, and has been a NJ Biz “Top Green Company” for two years in a row.

We provide a wide range of construction and construction-related services for projects of varying scope, budget, schedule and complexity. Our experience includes projects from various sectors, including arts and culture, commercial, convention centers, education, gaming, government, healthcare, hospitality, residential, retail, sports and leisure, technology and transportation.
More than a century of achievement comes from longstanding relationships with clients and design professionals. We value these relationships and consider them to be a cornerstone of our success. We attribute our achievements to the quality of our construction professionals and the results they continue to produce. Our goal is to help each of our clients realize their vision. We do this by managing the complexity inherent in construction projects and becoming a key part of the project team.

Tishman was founded in 1898 by Julius Tishman with the construction of a six-story apartment building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Tishman soon became the owner and builder of multiple luxury apartment buildings around Manhattan.
John L. Tishman joined the firm in 1947. Under his guidance, Tishman Construction helped popularize construction management, a concept that allowed projects to be executed in a shorter time frame than other delivery methods and aligned the oversight of construction with the owner’s interests. Under this methodology, Tishman Construction built landmark projects across the country. John L. Tishman continues to serve as a member of the board and is past Chairman of both Tishman Construction Corporation and Tishman Hotel & Realty LP.

Daniel R. Tishman joined the firm in 1990, becoming the fourth generation to do so. He continues to lead the company today in providing construction services to projects of varying types and levels of complexity. Under his leadership, the firm has expanded to Las Vegas and created Tishman Sustainability Corporation.
In July of 2010, Daniel R. Tishman and his Vice Chairman and partner, John Vickers, merged Tishman Construction Corporation with AECOM, a leading provider of technical and management support services for commercial and government clients around the world. Tishman will serve as the bedrock of AECOM’s construction management services. This move substantially increases Tishman’s ability to bring its brand of construction around the world and to deliver turnkey projects that many clients want.
Tishman Construction made its mark building projects of all sizes and complexities and today also provides specialty services through subsidiaries that manage technology, interiors, sustainability and real estate.

Going Green the DP Way: The Future is Now, and it is GREEN.

Global warming and greening the planet has been thrust into our consciousness as never before.  Building sustainability is now given serious, in-depth consideration by all developers.  DP is committed to building green and educating our clients and ourselves on the inherent benefits.  Early in our process our pioneering efforts included a “4 Green” initiative that encompassed four basic precepts:

Design Green – Promote and use environmentally friendly materials and energy-efficient systems in new and retrofitted buildings
Build Green – Reduce construction waste, promote recycling during construction, and use green design criteria
Work Green – Create worker-friendly environments which increase employee productivity
Save Green – Carefully select building materials and systems, such as energy-efficient lighting, and reduce operational costs for our clients

While “4 Green” was and is an important step in this critical area, DP Partners is committed to going beyond it. As active members and supporters of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC), DP has made a commitment to developing LEED Certified projects.  With a team of  LEED-Accredited Professionals (LEED-AP), we have the expertise needed to develop LEED projects, NOW. 

DP Partners strives to be ahead of the curve, to the benefit of our clients.  Studies show that LEED buildings result in significant operational savings, primarily energy, over the life cycle of a building, as much as 20%.   We are extremely committed to this quickly-advancing standard and continue to look for innovative methods and products that will provide quality, sustainability, and value to our clients.

COCKTAIL SPONSPOR  -   Haftek Concrete Washout Systems

Construction sites have long been identified as a large contributor to urban runoff pollution if the proper pollution prevention practices are not regularly performed. Materials washed into the storm drain have a direct impact on local waterways and habitat living in that environment.
The most common discharge into our storm drains from concrete construction is the residue and contaminants from washing down equipment such as concrete trucks, pumps, mixers, chutes, hand tools and wheelbarrows.
"The Clean Water Act requires developers to comply with permit requirements and take simple, basic steps to prevent pollutants from contaminating storm water"
Alex Strauss, EPA Water Director
Due to this high potential for urban runoff pollution, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has stepped up their efforts to keep Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plans compliant to the National Pollution Discharge Elimination Systems. All of these mandatory criteria are part of the US Clean Water Act and mandates the utilization of Best Management Practices (BMP’s) on construction sites. Potential discharges into the storm drain systems from concrete work has become a priority of the federal and state EPA, water quality control officials, regional and local inspectors as well as a strategic target of the advocacy and environmental groups. Illegal discharges into our waterways can bring fines of $32,500 per day if the US EPA becomes involved.
THE SOLUTION
Located in Paterson, NJ., Haftek Concrete Washout Systems was created to service the construction industry with a safe, responsible, and environmentally friendly alternative to the old worksite concrete washouts.
Concrete Washout System is a portable, self-contained and watertight roll-off bin that controls, captures and contains concrete washout material and runoff. Our system makes it easy to washout concrete trucks, pumps and equipment on-site and facilitates easy off-site recycling of the same concrete materials and wastewater.
"Concrete Washout Systems is great! It's a one-call service.  No more headaches over clean up and no more environmental concerns. Your service is great and makes my life much easier."
Concrete Washout Systems, Inc is currently being used by some of the largest residential and commercial builders in the country with tremendous success. We have assisted builders in lowering their operational costs relating to concrete washout containment, overall cleanliness of jobsites, maximizing operational efficiency and keeping them in compliance.
Concrete Washout Systems keeps your job sites -- and bottom line  -- looking good.
