1999 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award - Educational Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Overall design/build time from design to delivery, including all reviews and approvals of this beautiful project, was only 25 months. The project is a senior high school for 2,500 students with a variety of vocational and technical programs. It includes two single-story buildings and a two-story building with a total area of over 300,000 square feet.

Tilt-Up construction was performed by Tilt-Con Corporation. The challenge was to coordinate all the equipment, floor finishes and floor power/data outlets in the casting slab. The use of repetitive Tilt-Up elements was achieved without sacrificing the interior layouts or the program requirements.

This was just one of the school projects submitted for award consideration. Tilt-Up construction is proving very popular for school construction throughout North America.

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.
