Office Pavilion

2010 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Office Pavilion, located along Beltway 8 North at the intersection of Highway 290 in Houston, Texas, was constructed to function as a showroom for Office Pavilion products. Along the length of the front facade, horizontal red sunshades help define the entry into the building.

The two-story glass-curtain wall further defines the entry, with showroom spaces and offices located beyond. In addition, a structural glass system and clerestory were utilized. One particularly unique detail of this project is the sunshades, which are integrated into the exterior to provide shading, and also into the interior where they become an exhibition wall for Office Pavilion products.

The building design incorporates expressions of freestanding Tilt-Up panel wall fins, which are used for signage and canopy support.

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.
