This spec warehouse incorporates several architectural tilt-up features including lay-up panels, floating panels and spandrels that span more than 50-feet. All four corners of the building incorporate three-story recessed storefront glass, covered canopies, floating panels, and bearing spandrels that frame into adjacent spandrel panels. The complexity of the corners required careful planning and erection.

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.
