2014 TCA Convention

Small Smart Boxes

Jeffrey Brown, AIA, Powers Brown Architecture

 

The next big thing in tilt-up may actually be small.

While nearly every building type has now been executed in tilt-up, this seminar focuses on recent projects bundled together as Small Smart Boxes.

These projects are from a series of small corporate build-to-suits that, because they had a small or moderate portion of warehouse, manufacturing, or distribution in their programs, were pre-determined to be built using tilt-up. This series of buildings demonstrates the architectural potential of this technology- its ability to provide interesting and formally innovative work environments / corporate image projections in a low-cost form.

 

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
