Johns Hopkins facility receives American Concrete Institute Award.

SlenderWall Johns HopkinsTheir choice of SlenderWall® from Smith-Midland Precast plays an important role in the successful reconstruction of a critical 1970’s medical facility. Announced on April 16th, 2015, The Nelson/Harvey Building has been recognized as an ACI Excellence award winner.

Midland, VA – April 23, 2015 – Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQB: SMID) – Johns Hopkins Hospital operates a dense, urban medical campus in Baltimore with an outsize global reputation. Nestled amid the pioneering clinical and research facilities is the Nelson-Harvey Building, a 1970s-era modernist structure with narrow ribbon windows and long expanses of brick colored to match the nearby Halstead Building and the 1880s Billings Building, a campus landmark with its classic dome. After opening a major new facility next door, the Zayed Bloomberg complex, the hospital began renovating existing facilities on its East Baltimore campus. The nine-story Nelson-Harvey was next on the list.

After decades of wear, the hand-laid brick envelope of the Johns Hopkins 9-story Nelson/Harvey inpatient facility began failing. “Late in the game, during design development, the client determined that we should also address envelope issues,” said Dan McKelvey, an associate principal and building envelope expert with Ayers Saint Gross, describing the existing, hand laid brick façades with a concrete masonry unit (CMU) backup on structural steel. “There were problems including cracking and deflecting brick, and the window system was outdated. The building had no insulation in the wall system, either.”

Best Multi-Family Housing:
ETS Student Housing (phase IV) in Montréal, Quebec

MIDLAND, Va. –

Schedule is always a top concern on construction projects, but it was particularly important for the team designing and constructing the ETS Student Housing for an engineering university in Montréal, QC, Canada, in 2012. "The completion date in August had to be respected as the building was fully rented to students for the beginning of their school year," says Serge Jacques, principal architect for Régis Côté et Associés.

To meet the deadline, as well as cost and durability goals, the firm chose a precast concrete panel system, SlenderWall. The composite precast concrete panels are 2 in.-thick (50 mm) architectural concrete on a galvanized steel stud frame, which translates into thinner and lighter panels.
