Zona Rosa Building C

2009 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

As an owner of another Tilt-Up building, the owner/developer for this project didn’t hesitate to select Tilt-Up again for their office/retail building in Kansas City’s Zona Rosa development.

Tilt-Up not only allowed for the incorporation of the aesthetic details the company desired, but also enabled a much speedier construction schedule—a mere seven weeks elapsed between starting the footings and erecting the panels.

Special Z-shaped column laps thoughtfully conceal panel joints and maintain the coursing of the cast-in thin-brick veneer on the building’s façade. The brick detailing mingles with cast stone, metal panels, EIFS and direct-applied synthetic stucco to create an eye-catching blend of textures. Circular elements—in the form of two 6-foot-radius, multi-plane, stepped thin-brick arches at the building’s southwest corner—add further architectural interest and help underscore the aesthetic and structural possibilities of Tilt-Up.

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.
