Modern look and performance

The 346-ft, 32-story building, “The Lumen”, designed by the architecture firm Davis, Carter, Scott of Tysons, VA, has risen approximately 865-ft rise above sea level with expansive views of Washington, DC and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The project includes 394,000 square feet of residential space, over 17,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and nine levels of parking. The building houses 398 units on 25 floors with luxury Penthouse units on the top three.

SlenderWall producer Smith-Midland and its Virginia plant manufactured and installed 57,666 sq. ft. (452 panels) of SlenderWall architectural precast and 23,502 sq. ft. (299 panels) of traditional architectural precast on the project. The turn-key service included final joint insulation and caulking.

The panels were designed with a 1.5” thermal air gap between the stud and the precast filled with factory-installed closed-cell foam to achieve an R-24 rating.
