The new 65,500 square foot New Orleans BioInnovation Center, designed by award-winning architecture firm, Eskew+Dumez+Ripple, in collaboration with Seattle's NBBJ, was featured in the May issue of Architectural Products magazine. The case study highlighted the use of SlenderWall panels manufactured by Easi-Set's licensed producer, Jackson Precast Inc. of Jackson, MS as a key in achieving the building envelope solution needed. "We wanted a durable, hurricane-proof and opaque system with a fine architectural surface, but we preferred a system that would be lighter than traditional precast," said Mark Ripple, AIA LEED AP and principal of EDR.
