1998 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Flexibility in design, substantial and attractive appearance, speed of construction, and energy efficiency and economy of maintenance were the key factors that changed the building from a simple masonry/metal siding warehouse, to this beautiful, classical architectural tilt-up concrete structure.

Columns and horizontal beams were integrated into the tilt-up panels. Loading docks were designed in a saw-tooth configuration to save space outside, and provide needed wind bracing.

The design/build team of The Bristol Group, Inc., Lexington, general contractor; Wiseman Architecture, Lexington; and Freeland Harris Consulting Engineer, Atlanta, completed the project on schedule despite record spring rainfall. T & M Tilt-Up, Winder, Ga., was the tilt-up contractor.

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.
