Miami Beach, FL – GT McDonald has contracted Building Blocks for Washington Square. As a result, we will furnish and install GFRC for the new micro-hotel in Miami’s South Beach. This project prioritizes efficient construction. Because of that, the glass fiber reinforced concrete (GFRC) is a unitized system. The masonry and window wall goes up in one piece. This accelerates the enclosure rate.
Washington Square is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects. Nichols Brosch Wurst Wolfe is the architect of record. The contemporary scalloped facade references the neighborhood’s Art Deco history. Therefore, it both fits in and stands out. Building Blocks recently completed a mockup of the glass fiber reinforced concrete facade for the project. The mockup highlights the facade design and demonstrates the unitized system. We are excited to bring this beautiful facade to South Beach.
