2015 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Structurally, tilt-wall is implemented in this project, yet is still able to achieve 45 percent glass with the remainder clad in brick, limestone and sandblasted architectural mix concrete. The complex is completed with an adjacent three-story garage, which creates an intimate courtyard for private employee entry and multiple site amenities. The building itself is divided into north and south pods which house lab spaces, offices and a host of overlapping collaboration zones for the employees. The lobby, which divides these zones, has an aforementioned employee entry as well as an elegantly designed visitor entry on the west facade, complete with a fifty-foot-tall curved louver screen and bisecting limestone wall which continues into the interior space. The interior of the lobby features a double-height space, custom monumental stair and high-end finishes that help introduce employees and visitors to the building.

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.
