Building Blocks Delivers 29,000 sqft of GFRC Panels for Albany Resort

GFRC Panels for Albany Resort

Albany B7
Building Blocks designed and manufactured 230 GFRC panels (29,000 sqft) for the Albany resort in the Bahamas. These mega panels are designed as a rainscreen system with the largest panels measuring 440 SF. We limited the panels to only four connections due to the challenges of constructing these blind connections on a structure that has three degrees of curvature. Because of the high wind loads in the Carribean, the panel design followed the requirements of our Miami-Dade NOA certification.
