GTL Construction has completed the interior fit-out for a new Alfalfa restaurant in downtown Jersey City, its latest project in the food service industry.

The construction manager, which worked with the business owner and Jarmel Kizel Architects & Engineers Inc., said the 1,200-square-foot space at 160 1st St. has a mix of natural materials and modern finishes. That includes custom millwork throughout, floor-to-ceiling tile, polished concrete floors and an innovative customer ordering system.

With the project’s completion, the eatery has brought its quick-service, healthy concept to Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District, following its founding in nearby Hoboken.

“The Alfalfa team were amazing to work with,” said P.J. Scriffignano, a GTL project manager. “Their cooperation and participation in the process was integral to completing this project.”

Fellow GTL Project Executive Sam Champi added: “Having worked closely with the Alfalfa team, it is very clear their dedication to detail and to their brand is the reason for their success.”

GTL added that it has decades of experience in restaurant build-outs, noting that it worked with the client and the design team from the initial planning stages to the final touches.

“We are thrilled to have worked with the owners of Alfalfa to bring their vision for this exciting new restaurant to life,” said Pietro Barberi, a vice president with GTL’s New Jersey unit. “Our team was dedicated to ensuring that every detail was taken care of, from the initial planning stages to the final touches.”

Aside from Hoboken, Alfalfa also has two locations in Southern California.

“We appreciated the way the site was maintained and the pleasant, can-do attitude of the GTL team,” said Dan Londono, co-founder of Alfalfa. “I would strongly recommend to others that they hire GTL for all their general contracting needs.”

GTL Construction of NJ Inc. has completed the interior fit-out for a new cancer treatment center in the Morris County borough of Riverdale.

The contractor, which worked on behalf of Regional Cancer Care Associates, said the facility at 18 Newark-Pompton Turnpike has modern medical equipment and technology, with a bright and welcoming design to provide patients with a comfortable setting as they continue their recovery. The 7,000-square-foot, two-story space is also ADA-compliant.

GTL Construction, whose New Jersey team is based in Parsippany, said the professional team for the project also included Cresa and Kimmerle Newman Architects.

“RCCA, Cresa and Kimmerle Newman were amazing to work with,” said Peter Montesano, the GTL project manager. “This project needed to be completed in a very short time period.
