1997 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This facility is truly multi-use. It combines executive offices, drive-thru sales, maintenance facilities, interior staging, drive-in coolers, and a special events catering business area. It houses multiple operations for a beverage distribution facility. The 150,000 square foot facility was designed by LJB Engineers & Architects of Dayton, Ohio and was submitted by CON/STEEL Tilt-Up Systems, Dayton, Ohio.

Three different wall panel types were used to meet the owner's varied design requirements. The first was a standard wall panel, used in the office area. The THERMOMASS Building Insulation System was used where an insulated, hard wall finish was required. The third wall panel was the newly developed THERMOCON panel. It was engineered to compete with block filled masonry walls in insulation value and construction costs.

Horizontal reveals extend around the entire building and are repeated in the columns supporting a curved entrance canopy. Another unique feature is the ability to move some of the walls as the business grows.

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.
