1998 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

A glass curtain wall system dominates the front facade of this striking building. The balance of the perimeter is constructed of four-story high tilt-up concrete panels. The 108,000 square-foot building was constructed in only nine months!

The design/build team was made up of Liberty Property Trust, owner; KBJ Architects, Inc.; and Elkins Constructors, Inc., the general and tilt-up contractor; all of Jacksonville. Operating under a fast-track program, they were able to accommodate the needs of Physicians Sales & Service for a corporate headquarters that is highly visible, and conveys their professional image and position as a leader in the medical equipment industry.

The building incorporates the first four-story tilt-up panels to be erected in the Jacksonville market. McVeigh & Mangum Engineering, Inc., Jacksonville, provided the engineering.

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.
