Miramar Centre Office Park

2002 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Located on an expressway interchange that serves the entrance of the City of Miramar, FL, the 204,000-square foot Miramar Centre office complex was designed around the concept of a traditional City plaza. The project's focal point is the piazza, where pedestrian and vehicular traffic co-exist harmoniously.

Engraved in the concrete monoliths, the meticulously crafted details borrow from the past, yet suggest the versatility of Tilt-Up technology.

Beyond accomplishing great architectural appeal, the contractor employed the PSI System, a specialized concrete roof-beam assembly. Because the PSI system uses concrete instead of structural steel, the interior footings were much larger than normal - the largest poured with more than 200 cubic yards of concrete. Every 12 days following the tilt process, an additional floor was poured. To add structural stability, two 50-foot-plus high shear walls were poured in stages with the floors.

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.
