The structure was originally designed for a lightweight EIFS exterior, but the developer decided there was too much liablity potential with that type of wall system. SlenderWall was chosen instead because of its permanent, maintenance-free, and lightweight characteristics. Because SlenderWall is still lightweight compared to heavier exterior wall systems, the structure did not have to be redesigned. Thus, savings were realized in both time and money on the project.
"SlenderWall was the right solution for us."
Lou Haddah, CEO & President, Armada Hoffler
