2007 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Special Projects Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Located in an area with seismic and storm requirements, this project needed to handle the elements. Tilt-Up was selected for this project for its ability to address those concerns as well as meet cost and schedule requirements.

Located on a very tight site, there was limited space for casting panels. This made panel layout and bracing extremely challenging. The project had several large panels that weighed approximately 95,000 pounds, which created heavy lifts.

The visually appealing three-story and partial four-story building for residential, office and retail use has brick exterior and major rustications. To create the multistory structure, smaller panels were set on top of the third floor slab on deck.

This project introduced Tilt-Up to the area and proved its viability for a four-story multi-use project.

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.
