This building features a full-height aluminum composite panel wing wall. Bracing the panels to the outside using helical anchors allowed for steel erection to proceed without conflicting with the bracing. Westway also boasts a fly-by curtain wall system integrated with the tilt-wall exterior facade to increase the glass to wall area ratio.

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.
