ADC Loon III

2002 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Manufacturing/Industrial Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The high-tech trend continues in the Manufacturing/Industrial category with ADC Telecommunications' ADC Loon III facility in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. The 221,174-square-foot space is the fourth project Lintel Constructora has completed for ADC in the last three years.

ADC once again selected Tilt-Up because of the method's ability to hold building value and architectural appeal.

The innovative use of curved panels, glass, and K-shaped Tilt-Up columns provide movement and uniqueness to the design. The small radius curved Tilt-Up panels were used to achieve perfectly circled focal areas. Such is the case with the main lobby and cafeteria areas with 24-feet and 46-feet radius respectively.

These circular forms are enhanced by the use of Tilt-Up columns shaped like the letter "K." The K shape allows the columns to maintain their center of gravity.

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.
