STONE PANELS FOR STONELEIGH RESIDENTIAL TOWER

AAS stone panels are used on this project in various applications, as an exterior veneer rain-screen, at the entry and base of the facade, as the surround stone on all balconies, as a banding at the penthouse tower area, and extensively at the garden and pool areas. This project is an excellent example of using matching masonry materials, GFRC and cast stone.

When the structural shell of this building was completed in 2008, AAS provided cast stone wall panels for the first two floors of the parking garages. However, the building went into receivership soon after construction started, and was then purchased by a new owner in 2012. After a four years hiatus, a different general contractor was hired to complete the project along with a number of new suppliers. The architects for the project continued to emphasize the importance of the original design vision particularly of the stone panels on the balconies and on every floor of the tower. The AAS team recommended using GFRC panels for this to take advantage of the lighter weight and ease of installation. The carefully controlled batch mix of the GFRC wall panels matched the color and finish of the cast stone used on the first two floors.

The challenge for AAS team was to understand the requirements of the new installer, and to modify the stone panels accordingly. While the balcony areas on different floors appear the same visually, there was a large variation in the dimensions. The support cut-out further complicated the balconies because there were different railing suppliers with varying cut-out positons. AAS engineering team created a series of unique notch and block-outs in the panel molds in order to create custom panels for almost every balcony. The built-in, pre-engineered GFRC connections simplified the installation for the contractor significantly and allowed the project to be highly successful.
