Toho Water Authority Administrative Headquarters

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Toho Water Authority Administration building is the new home of the Tohopekaliga Water Authority, the largest provider of water, wastewater and reclaimed water services for Kissimmee, Poinciana and Osceola counties in Florida.

The building boasts several TCA superlatives, ranking ninth on TCA's Top Ten Widest Panels list, second on the TCA Top Ten Heaviest Panels list (330,000 pounds), and ranking first on the TCA Top Ten Largest Panels list with 2,950-square-foot panels.

The large, heavy panels required two cranes working in synchronization with ground crews to place, and the small site and limited space presented even greater challenges.

The finished building displays intricate rustication and architectural detailed recesses to provide a modern look. The Toho Water Authority Administration building earned a LEED Certification for its use of recycled concrete and regional materials.

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.
