2005 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Located along the front range of the Rocky Mountains, this beer distribution facility replaced an existing building. The owner preferred a design that was cohesive with Anheuser-Busch’s 1870’s Brew House in St. Louis, Mo. yet would easily tie into the surrounding natural terrain. Close coordination with the City of Littleton also was key to project success.

The end-result was a facility that features auburn brick, limestone and a mahogany wooden ceiling with trusses. Accented stained concrete floors welcome visitors into the lobby, which is designed to be multi-functional and allow for large gatherings outside the hospitality suite.

The warehouse has an exterior brick column at 40-feet-on-center to give relief to the large panel. The office has a metal-sloped roof to screen the rooftop mechanical units and a ridged entry extended into the lobby featuring wood timber beams and ceiling. Brick venner was used to match the modular brick.

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.
