Camino Al Norte Business Center

2006 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Camino Al Norte Business Center is a two-story 49,000 square foot office complex featuring an innovative design for which concrete was more suitable than other forms of construction.

Step-down wing walls, 20-inches thick, create attractive detail and accent the terrace patios on the five-sided building. The concrete radius entry with individual panels that reach 35-feet in height are enhanced by curtain wall glass construction as a backdrop and create an impressive visual impact.

With the goal of providing a high-quality commercial development for the city of North Las Vegas, the facility offers two-inch beveled reveals, decorative caps, radius patio areas and front entries. The pop-outs create a striking visual effect for the facility.

Tilt-Up was selected for this project because the method could provide the architectural capabilities the owner wanted.

One of the greatest challenges was the width and total overall weight of the panels, but the uncompromised attention to detail on this building has gained the attention of city officials, local developers, and design team professionals across the country.

This building exemplifies the concept of design and the execution of expert craftsmanship.

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.
