Wasatch Supply, Inc.

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Retail Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

With clean horizontal and vertical lines, the new Wasatch Supply building has a Zen-like look, but slight geometric deviations add interest and aesthetic appeal.

At the corners of the retail and office areas, the walls taper to reveal two stories of glass that offer visibility, views and natural light. The second-level office area opens to the space below, playing off of the glass corners.

The warehouse area is flooded with natural light and painted white, eliminating the need for artificial light during the day. The retail and office areas are shielded from the sun by the warehouse structure; a simple awning protects the dock area along the front of the building, and also helps to visually tie the warehouse to the retail and office space.

The abundance of natural light, in conjunction with high-efficiency skylights and transom windows, has helped to reduce energy costs. Since moving into the new, highly efficient building, Wasatch reports increases in business, efficiency and employee morale.

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.
