Hagemeyer North America Corporate Office Building

2007 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Home to Hagemeyer’s more than 200 local associates, this Class A office facility unites all employees who were previously scattered throughout Charleston, South Carolina.

Tilt-Up was selected early in the development phase as the most economical means of construction as well as for the method’s durability and ability to meet tight schedules. A visually-appealing structure, the design consists of brick inserts, painted concrete that is textured to resemble stucco and multiple reveals that break-up the exterior finishes. These finishes provide the appearance of a traditional office building constructed of conventional metal stud exterior walls, with modular brick and EIFS finishes.

The brick elevations vary from just below windows to full height to provide the desired architectural distinction in appearance. The main entry panels are arched to follow the radius curvature of standing seam metal canopies. The canopies are supported by two Tilt-Up concrete columns, each painted to match the building finish scheme.

Featured in the Charleston Regional Business Journal, this project is a prime example of the architectural appeal of Tilt-Up and the viability of the method to this region.

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.
