2005 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Civic Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Tilt-Up was selected for this project because of the method’s ability to meet the owner’s schedule and budget while providing superior design. The contractor was able to demonstrate that Tilt-Up was the solution for this project, even though it had a small footprint, was multiple stories and required natural light and many clear spaces.

The pool complex with a exercise room above it created several challenges including loading and climate control. Corrosion and climate control issues were solved with insulated panels supporting a ceiling of double tees. The all concrete pool structure provides a tight corrosive resistant environment. Vibrant colors with out-of-plane panels and strategically placed windows create a unique look. Entrance canopies were built with curved panels and intricate supporting brackets. This facility capitalizes on the natural beauty of concrete since it is the only material used.

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.
