SlenderWall Curtain Wall Value for Architects, Contractors and Owners/DevelopersValue You Can MeasureSlenderWall Curtain Wall Value for Architects, Contractors & Owners/Developers

Architects look for:

  • Appearance & Quality - architectural precast concrete exterior finish
  • Proven Systems - over 2,000,000 square feet installed
  • Cost-Effective - net cost to project is substantially below panel direct costs
  • Flexibility - large panels, cantilever applications, multiple finishes

General Contractors need:

  • Reduced Construction Schedules - large panels shorten the installation schedule
  • Speed of Erection - proprietary system increases installation rates by up to 50%
  • Smaller Construction Cranes - light weight panels - 28 lbs/sf
  • Reduced Trades at the Site - panelization, exterior wall studding integral to panel and architectural precast concrete brick (APCB) (also eliminates lay-down area)

Owners / Developers demand:

  • Appearance - high quality architectural precast concrete with integral architectural details and multiple finishes
  • Reduced Construction Costs - reduced foundation and superstructure requirements, outboard mounting produces “bonus” square footage on every floor, exterior wall framing integral to panel, shorter construction schedules, lighter cranes
  • Cooling and Heating Costs - panels have an integral thermal break / air barriers
  • Permanence - precast concrete finish, seismic isolation, new caulking technology
