Highfield Business Park Building #3

2015 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This new, speculative industrial building is located on a prominent corner site in a newer, southeast Denver, Colorado industrial park. The owner desired an energy efficient, cost effective building that projected a bold image in a competitive market. The use of tilt-up concrete wall panels was important in developing a high performance, low maintenance building shell that fit the owner's construction budget and schedule. Tilt-up construction served to be an affordable method that allowed a creative variety on the long building facades and for helping break up the large wall surfaces through added details and visual interest. Oversized, projecting, perforated panels and vertical fins at the corners and along the front are used to dramatically draw attention to the building entrances. Combined with a fresh, bold paint scheme, colored glazing and mullions, the overall design creates a distinctive building that will long be recognized in the community.

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.
