Memorial Herman Cypress Hospital is among the first of its kind in the institutional construction sector. The bed tower consists of stacked panels, and the bottom was four stories high and 14 inches thick, while the top story measured only 8 inches thick. The Diagnostic and Treatment building consists primarily of three-story, 11 ΒΌ-inch panels. All panels included simple reveals and multiple reveals under large openings. Design was being finalized as the project went forward, satisfying the owner's expectations in a concurrent manner.

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.
