District 9 Medical Examiner's Office

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The District 9 Medical Examiner's Office, one of the first green medical examiner's offices in the country, provides Orange and Osceola Counties with a high-tech, cutting edge forensic facility. Rather than the dark and foreboding facades generally associated with a county morgue, its innovative design presents an open and warm aesthetic.

Design features include multiple elevations for the cooler recesses and exposed stained and polished concrete floors. Separate buildings for the storage of the deceased maintain a higher standard of health and cleanliness for employees and visitors of the facility. The use of recycled concrete, reinforcing materials and plastics helped the structure earn LEED certification.

In addition to offering the growing county four times the capacity of the prior examiner's office, this new facility is the new home for the Discovery Health Chanel's Dr. G: Medical Examiner series.

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.
