MIDLAND, Va. –
Just completed, the Princess Anne Road sound wall project brings SMC’s total of SoftSound sound absorptive wall installed to over 1 million square feet in just under 4 years. Princess Anne Road was a small, but important project. 8 foot high panels along a residential neighborhood in Virginia Beach, VA were designed and finished to match the brick and mortar work of the nearby VA Beach Municipal Center. Construction of the 650 foot long project consisted of 9,000+ square feet of 8 foot high x 16 foot wide panels and accompanying posts.
The success of Princess Anne Road and previous work has led to the acquisition of another SoftSound project in Virginia Beach. Beginning in the summer of 2012 and running through 2014, SMC will manufacture over 100,000 square feet of SoftSound panels for a 1.5 mile project on the Nimmo Parkway. Special form liners have been developed depicting seashore, farmland, mountain and other signature Virginia landscapes. A successful test of SoftSound aggregate and the new form liner design was performed in early May, 2012.
