Muviville Entertainment Complex

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Commercial Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Featuring a 12-screen stadium seating theater, 16 bowling lanes, numerous dining options and a dance club, the two-story Muvico Entertainment complex is the next generation of entertainment destinations.

The expedited delivery afforded with Tilt-Up construction helped the facility to open on time and within budget securing financial return, which is critical for this type of venue where time is money.

Offering load-bearing walls, Tilt-Up allowed for the efficient use of space to incorporate the extensive selection of entertainment venues provided by the complex. Site-cast precast elements were used for upper level premier seating, which provided the necessary fire-rating and support.

In addition to providing superior sound control, Tilt-Up enabled the design team to incorporate architectural features to create an eye-catching exterior for this unique project.

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.
