Smith-Midland wins AGC of DC award for Smithsonian National Zoo project

Smith Midland AGC award winner

Smith-Midland Corporation (OTCQX: SMID) – The Associated General Contractors Association (AGC) has awarded Smith-Midland the 2017 Design-Build Subcontractor Award for its manufacturing of the Smithsonian’s National Zoological Park Retaining Wall in Washington, DC. The 850 foot long x 30 foot high simulated stone retaining wall was built to replace existing structures along an extensive drop off on the entrance road above parking lot C. General Contractor Hensel Phelps worked with Smith-Midland to design the precast concrete panels, and to complete the welding and wall erection. Originally designed to be cast in place, Hensel Phelps rethought the process, proposing a value engineering option involving the use of a shotcrete wall and placement of precast concrete panels as a facing. This change allowed the main visitor access road above the wall to remain open throughout the process.
