|The SmithGroup of Washington designed the Two Freedom Square Office Building, made with precast panels manufactured by Arban & Carosi of Woodbridge, VA using Lehigh White Cement. |
At the building's entrance, the precast concrete panels are consistent in color and texture. Large scale precast corner panels almost 30 feet high are crafted with several horizontal joints, all of which are precisely aligned. At street level, the light colored precast concrete pilasters are distinct from the darker storefronts. The cumulative result of this quality design and fabrications effort is a special and elegant building for an urban environment."
