Newby Island Resource Recovery Park


World's Most Advanced Recycling Plant

Blach completed the renovation of an 80,000 s.f. recycling facility at Newby Island in Milpitas for Republic Services, one of the country's largest waste services providers, in the summer of 2012. 

The building houses the world’s most sophisticated Material Recovery Facility (MRF), with the intent of recycling at least 80% of waste material collected from San Jose businesses.  The recycling plant can process up to 420,000 tons of waste annually. 

San Jose City College


Multidisciplinary Building & Fine Arts Center

The new building, expected to achieve LEED Silver certification, is located on the San Jose City College campus and includes several multi-disciplinary classrooms for fine arts and photography, laboratories for the visual and performing arts programs, staff offices, student services, various site work and landscaping. 

Blach Construction and AEDIS Architecture & Planning completed the 48,000 s.f. multidisciplinary classroom building for the San Jose/Evergreen Community College District this August.

Palo Alto Medical Foundation


New Innovation Center

Blach renovated the PAMF’s Innovation Center in 2011 on an aggressive, eight-week schedule. The project included a flexible space to serve as a “think-tank” for PAMF’s innovation team with open-office workspaces, offices, a boardroom, kitchen area and common areas.

The Palo Alto Medical Foundation for Health Care, Research and Education is a not-for-profit health care organization that is a pioneer in the multispecialty group practice of medicine. 

San Carlos School District


Prefabricated Classroom Building

The District has partnered with Blach to construct $30M of work, including a new 44,000 sq.ft. two-story classroom building at Central Middle School and the remodel of the existing Central Middle School into a grades 4-5 bridge school.

An Open Invitation: Check Out Blach’s New HQ!

(By Mike Blach)

As Blach Construction marks its recent move to San Jose, I invite all of our clients, business partners and friends to stop by and check out our new headquarters, which opened in December. A few months ago, Blach purchased a tired, mid-‘80s R&D building in north San Jose and completely re-purposed the structure into a state-of-the-art corporate office.
