G.A. Wright

2006 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Manufacturing/Industrial Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Tilt-Up was selected for this project because of its low maintenance properties, attractive look and cost-effectiveness.

One of the main challenges for this project was to meet the requirements of three design review committees while designing a very cost-effective project.

Architectural treatments include an extensive reveal pattern and 1.5-inch recesses at the corners, two different glazing colors and interlocking blocks of color. A dramatic entryway was created through the use of projecting, angled corner glazing. Features such as varying windows sizes, butt-glazed corner windows and steel detailing at corner entries add visual appeal to the facility.

This unique project is a highly visible Tilt-Up facility with unique a fenestration pattern and paint scheme.

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.
