|23-24 NEWMAN ST.||
A multi-story exterior, column band, balcony fascias, and soffits project clad in 313 m2 of StoneLite® St. Hubert SLG and Texas Cordova Shellstone Limestone. The project scope was a retrofit and conversion of a 1970’s unsightly office building into 23 residential apartments with office accommodations on the ground floor.
The StoneLite® panels lightweight properties are a natural solution to architectural features where weight may be an issue.
The project won Best Housing (Large) in the AJ Retrofit Awards 2012 and a Blue Ribbon Award for Best Apartment.
When the Hyatt embarked on their renovation they selected StoneLite® Prairie Green granite in a high honed finish along with Impala Black granite in a flamed finish for portions of their exterior cladding Over 9,650 sq. ft. of StoneLite® panels were installed. The maximum panel size was 4’x8′ equaling about 144 lbs. per panel and allowed the installer to set 32 sq. ft. of stone in a matter of minutes using a boom basket.

Approximately 2,176 sq. ft. of StoneLite® Kashmir Gold granite panels were utilized for the first floor exterior elevation and entrance renovation.

When First Savings Bank acquired the deteriorated building it had water entering the building through the existing EFIS cladding, the original finish was worn and weathered, and there were visible patches where attempts had been made to repair the exterior skin.
The client’s primary objective was to convert this unoccupied multi-tenanted building from a non performing liability to a valuable asset at a fraction of the cost and time required for demolition and rebuilding. Heavy solid stone was not an option as it would have required extensive reinforcing of the existing structure.
The client was able to modify the existing facade by specifying StoneLite® Blue Pearl granite panels. By selecting StoneLite®, the building’s exterior steel stud framing could remain in place.
While the building has undergone tenant changes and is now home to Provident Bank the exterior remains as beautiful today as when it was installed in 1997.
Crest Cadillac participated in the Cadillac Brand Image project which included an exterior cladding renovation using StoneLite® Indiana Standard Buff limestone panels. Almost 2,000 sq. ft. of natural lightweight stone composite panels were installed.
In addition to manufacturing the panels SPI performed the installation services. StoneLite® panels can be installed in all weather conditions as evidenced by the installation photos. The natural limestone facing is porous while the honeycomb substrate is water impenetrable and may be used in an open joint/rain screen system. The installation photos attached to this project were taken before the project was completely installed and caulked.
