Signature Grand Conference Center

1998 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This Mediterranean design building offers 17 separate soundproofed banquet rooms, the largest accommodating 1800 people, plus offices and service spaces. Tilt-up is usually not associated with this type of design, but Miller Construction Company, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., a Con/Steel licensee, general and tilt-up contractor, accomplished it. Architectural application of Styrofoam, wood, rigid urethane moldings, the Old Florida coral color scheme and rustication pattern, with synthetic stucco finish, give this facility beauty and style.

The nearly 100,000-square-foot facility already has bookings through the year 2000, having held 1000 events in the two months after the grand opening. The architect was Jeff Falkanger & Associates, Inc., Ft. Lauderdale, and the engineer was LJB Engineers & Architects, Dayton, Ohio.

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.
