Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

Agilent Technologies, Airport Corporate Center

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Panattoni and RMW team also are winners in the Office category with two high-tech buildings at the Santa Rosa Airport Corporate Center for Agilent Technologies.

To meet exploding demand for its telecommunications products, Agilent needed a new manufacturing campus - a challenge solved in only 11 months through Tilt-Up. Two speculative office buildings, 54,000 and 64,000-square feet in size, already designed for generic office space, were converted to office tech use with higher floor-to-floor heights.

The building facade is a rhythm of graphic bands, pilasters, lintels and sill panels to provide relief along the long elevations. Freestanding vertical panels delineate the building entries and a long parapet adds style to the otherwise rectangular form. Sculpted foam profiles were applied to various locations to add further relief.

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.
