etoys-Prologis Park Building #1

2001 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Because of its high visibility, this 763,228 square foot office distribution facility required a unique and high-end design. Utilizing concrete Tilt-Up panels with reflective glazing elements and “pop-out” architectural panel design elements, provided the owner with an aesthetically appealing facility.

The $11.8 million building, constructed in 198 days, has 45-foot high wall panels, a 32-foot clear height warehouse area, and cross-dock loading with an ESFR fire sprinkler system. The tallest panel is 46 feet high and the heaviest panel weighs more than 196,000 lbs.

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.
