Huntington Hospital, Long Island, NY, specified the SlenderWall architectural precast concrete panel system for the addition on to the existing structure.
The patented SlenderWall architectural precast concrete panel system was proposed for the project by Barr & Barr Contractors because of the successful results from an earlier project in Mahwah, NJ. SlenderWall allowed for a fast schedule and saved the project many months and considerable money as compared to the traditional construction bid previously obtained.
"SLENDERWALL® provided the ability to be creative at an economical cost to the client. The flexibility of the system provided us with unlimited design freedom to realize the Hospital’s mission."
-Victor Famulari, R.A., NCARB Smith-Palmer & Famulari, Ltd.
"Our overall objectives of design flexibility, sound construction, and speed of building erection – all at economical costs – were made possible with the SlenderWall panel system"
