Low maintenance and long-term value

The Embassy Suites in Berkeley Heights is being constructed with 396 smooth acid-finished panels, for a total of 52,671 square feet of precast architectural panels. The 187,000-square-foot development is located within the Connell Corporate Park and will result in an eight-story, 176-room hotel at a total project cost of $39.5 million.

"By using SlenderWall and its cost-effective combination of durable architectural precast concrete, stud wall framing, and closed-cell spray foam insulation integral to the panel," said Chris Grogan, Business Development Manager, Smith-Midland, "the project was able to reduce both the on-site trade work required and the overall project schedule."

"We are glad that hotel owners see the benefit of using a long-lasting, durable skin for their projects," said Matthew Smith, Smith-Midland’s Vice President. "Their headaches with maintenance and replacing exteriors will go away."
