"The goal was to convert a nearly century-old concrete structure into a state-of-the-art classroom facility. The new Bradley Hall would need to be created from a building out of square and plumb by more than 4-inches from bottom to top, with a severely deteriorated facade. Bradley Hall would also need to remain occupied by students and teachers throughout the exterior renovation process."

"The SlenderWall panels were pre-insulated at the factory and were used to re-clad a deteriorated, turn-of-the-century industrial structure. The system installation integrated easily with the custom windows of our design. SlenderWall is a significant and permanent improvement to the existing building."
