In April of 2012, Smith-Midland completed a Slenderwall project for the U.S. Army Legal Service Agency Administrative Offices at Fort Belvoir, Virginia. This project for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers was designed to accommodate a 4-story U.S. Army Legal Service Agency Administration Building and the U.S. Army Legal Services and Army Audit Agency, as well as a 2-story adjacent Courtroom Building.
The project incorporated 33,388 s.f. of the Slenderwall® Architectural Precast Wall System. The facility was designed to be a multi-story command headquarters building and achieved a LEED Silver Certification and hopefully LEED Gold Certification. On another note, this project was our first building designed to meet the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Defense anti-terrorism force security blast criteria for the construction of all new government buildings. The project was installed in a record 14 days!
