Two Columbia Gateway Business Park buildings clad with SlenderWall, the Gateway Exchange I & II in Columbia, MD. These 125,000 sq. ft., class A office buildings are the 3rd and 4th buildings in the Columbia Gateway Business Park that have used SlenderWall. The 460 SlenderWall panels feature a “buff” color, architectural precast concrete mix that was finished with a light acid wash to simulate Indiana limestone. The buildings are owned and operated by Corporate Office Properties Trust (COPT).
Why did they choose SlenderWall? Past satisfied experience, and fast erection times. The building panels were to be erected in 6 weeks and were actually in place a week early.
"SlenderWall was chosen for 2 main reasons “… it is a continuation of a product that we knew worked well and because of the effectiveness of erection. We had potential tenants and needed to turn around the space quickly.”
-Stan Link, Senior Vice President Construction for COPT
