Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

One Mansfield Crossing

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

When the owner of the office building at One Mansfield Crossing selected Tilt-Up construction, saving money was the primary driver, but maintaining architectural quality was also a major consideration. The project’s architect, who had never worked with Tilt-Up construction before, designed a brick façade, segmented radius building that incorporated relief panels to add visual interest.

To conceive this challenging design, DIVCON used 11 5/8-inch panels with varying depths of foam recesses. Because of the curved-wall design, careful consideration had to be taken when laying out the panels to make sure they would all fit together correctly and that all the reveals would be consistent once the panels were erected. To match the columns on the trellis entry to the panels’ brick façade, thin brick was installed on three sides of the column form and then wet-set on the remaining side as the concrete was placed.

This building, an architectural beacon in the suburban Spokane Valley area, is one of the flagship structures in Mirabeau Point, an 80-acre mixed-use development visible from Interstate 90.

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.
