FAM Construction LLC (a Ferrovial Agroman US and Allan Myers joint venture) has awarded Smith-Midland the contract to supply 900,000 sq. ft. of SoftSound noise absorptive precast concrete sound wall panels for the I-66 Outside the Beltway Express Lanes project in Northern Virginia. The 22.5-mile-long I-66 project will provide two express lanes alongside three regular lanes from I-495 to Route 29 in Gainesville, along with other amenities and space reserved for future transit options.

The Midland, Va., plant will begin production in mid-2018, with final project completion scheduled for 2022.

“This is the single largest contract in our company's 58-year history,” said Matthew Smith, Smith-Midland's VP of sales and marketing. “Our customers continue to respond in a positive manner to the quality of our products and the excellent service that we provide.”

“We are proud to see our work contribute to a project that will benefit Virginians for decades to come,” added Ashley Smith, Smith-Midland's president, COO, and incoming CEO.

SoftSound, an Easi-Set Worldwide licensed product, is a proprietary material molded and compressed to meet the desired technical and aesthetic requirements, providing superior sound absorptive technology. It combines a highly specialized mineralized aggregate with cement as a binder in a specific and exacting manufacturing process. Once installed, SoftSound surpasses other products for sound absorption, durability, strength, and moldability, according to the manufacturer.
