This three-building facility was cited as exemplary by the firm the school board hired to audit their construction projects. Constructed by The Haskell Company, Jacksonville, Fla., the 211,000-square-foot facility serves as a marine-magnet-curriculum school for 1,750 students. The tilt-up buildings include a multi-purpose building which also serves as a hurricane shelter.

The 250 exterior panels support the roof and floor system, as well as provide the principal lateral load resisting system by acting as wind shear walls. The two-story panels weigh up to 70 tons each. A marine motif is produced on virtually all of the panels. The Haskell Company provided all contracting, architectural and engineering services.

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.
