2007 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Because of its location on a prominent street corner in the city of Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., the 350,840-square-foot warehouse facility designed by Panattoni Construction was held to higher-than-usual standards. The city’s planning commission required not only a minimum of three finishes on the building’s exterior, but also mandated offsets in the façade that would break up the flat walls of a traditional warehouse.

Panattoni met these guidelines by incorporating symmetrically spaced, freestanding, sandblasted arcade panels on the building’s exterior, combined with blue glass, slate veneer wainscot accents, a decorative metal canopy over the entrance, and stained wood lattice on the patio areas.

Because access was limited on the urban site, a 50-foot area of the floor slab was poured after the panels were erected, allowing them to be lifted by crane from inside 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.
