Acosta

2002 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Creating Class-A corporate office headquarters while still maintaining a multi-tenant functionality and capitalizing on the speed and economy associated with Tilt-Up construction was the challenge faced with the Acosta office facility in Jacksonville, Florida.

The 90,000-square-foot building was designed with depth in mind, to include exterior framing with EIFS and panels with large window openings stacked in front of each other.

Panel forming was a challenge due to the computer room's recessed floor, and limited areas for casting beds and an adjacent pond. The large window openings required extensive re-steel in the horizontal and vertical members of the panels.

By maintaining accurate window opening sizes during framing and pouring of the concrete panels, quick and easy installation of the four-sided structural aluminum and glass framing system was allowed - allowing the building to be dried-in quickly.

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.
