2009 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Retail Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Located less than one mile from Rex Hospital and numerous other medical and professional office buildings, this mixed-use project includes retail (39,241-square-feet), restaurant (7,226-square-feet) and office (94,214-square-feet) spaces.

The owner’s anchor tenant, occupying more than 30 percent of the project’s square footage, chose this project because of Tilt-Up’s ability to meet their challenging occupancy timeframes. Detailed project scheduling and staging of multiple buildings was required to meet the critical dates for both the beginning of tenant up-fits and the completion of the surrounding site work.

Not only was Tilt-Up used because of the client’s timeframe but also for aesthetic appeal, creativity of structural and architectural design, and advanced construction standards. A cohesive design with attractive features such as multi-level balconies, numerous arched openings, cupolas and detailed fenestration were utilized to achieve the architect’s desired style. This project utilized a diverse range of architectural treatments including a mix of brick and painted concrete surfaces, EIFS cornices applied to panels, varied lighting fixtures and miscellaneous metal treatments.

Other unique design elements for the three and four-story buildings included two curved sections in each, laps, jogs, varying heights, retaining walls, spandrel glass, as well as Tilt-Up columns with segmented curved beams that support a second floor balcony and roof.

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.
