2015 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Southpointe II, a 117-acre master planned mixed-use development in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, will become home to three new office buildings for Burns & Scalo Real Estate Services. The project consists of three five-story buildings clad in brick masonry and metal cornice accents. Building 1 is 183,000-square-feet and will be a build-to-suite project for ANSYS, an engineering simulation software company. Building 2 and 3 are each 151,000-square-feet speculative office buildings.

The thoughtful master plan provides a campus like setting through building sitting, landscape design and pedestrian links between the buildings. Taking full advantage of the location, the building's configuration, orientation and the fenestration optimizes views for its tenants to the surrounding Pittsburgh hillside. In addition, the buildings are uniquely positioned to enhance their presence from the I-79 corridor to the south.

The highly efficient floor plates are designed to work with multitenant configurations and offer column-free exterior walls. Building vertical circulation is arranged at the center core of the plan, providing uninterrupted exterior perimeter walls with floor-to-ceiling glass.

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.
