Grandview Business Centre

2013 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Grandview Business Centre is a four-story, multi-tenant commercial office building that is a landmark within its newly developed neighborhood. Tilt-up concrete construction is the preferred construction method for this highly residential area because of its tendency to be a quieter form of construction. The four-day tilt-up construction process went smoothly, even though this project included one of the heaviest panels to be lifted in western Canada at the time it was built.

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.
