2014 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This project involved the construction of four-story tilt-up concrete multi-tenant office building with high quality interior finishes. The building utilized two of the heaviest panels ever lifted in western Canada at 196,000 lbs each, an exceptional feat given the close proximity to neighboring buildings. The tight floor plan combined with cast-in-place stair shafts and shear walls required thoughtful layout of panels and stackers.

Imported Italian plaster finishes were used for all interior common area walls, ceilings, and lobby areas. The project also used structural curtain wall framing and reflective glazing systems extensively. Following LEED specifications, recycled materials were used and an on-site recycling program was in place.

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.
