New Jersey luxury condos use Smith-Midland panels

The South Beach at Long Branch, N.J., development will have 47 condos on 1.7 acres.
Fauquier-based Smith-Midland Corp. has a contract to supply its proprietary SlenderWall precast exterior panels for an upscale condominium development on the New Jersey shore.

The South Beach at Long Branch development will feature two, side-by-side towers with 47 residences on 1.7 acres of oceanfront property. Mimi and Edwin Feliciano, owners of development company FEM South Beach Urban Renewal, planned the eight-story complex with panoramic views.

First-floor garden residences will start at $1.1 million. South Tower penthouse duplexes will have 1,000-square-foot rooftop terraces. A 3,300-square-foot North Tower penthouse will have 3,300-square-foot terrace and glass-enclosed climate controlled loggia.

The project envelope will use SlenderWall precast concrete building panels with a composite cladding system, 66 percent lighter than traditional 6-inch-thick precast. SlenderWall panels can withstand 226-mph winds. Each panel will have its stud wall cavity filled with 3.5 inches of factory-applied closed-cell foam insulation to achieve an R-24 thermal rating to play a significant role in the energy efficiency of the project.

The contractor, Cornerstone Construction Services of Somerville, N.J., contracted Smith-Midland’s precast plant in Southern Fauquier to manufacture the 451 white acid-etched SlenderWall panels (28,578 square feet) and 88 panels (4,637 square feet) of traditional architectural precast.

Smith-Midland will provide turn-key service on the project, including panel erection and caulking services. Production of the panels will begin this month, with installation to be complete in May 2018.

Headquartered in Midland, the publicly-traded company develops, manufactures and sells an array of precast concrete products for the construction, transportation and utilities industries. Smith-Midland has three manufacturing plants in Midland, Reidsville, N.C., and Columbia, S.C.
