Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

S.B. Ballard Construction Company

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The construction method employed by a contractor for their own office and warehouse space certainly speaks loudly to the marketplace. As such, Tilt-Up was the only consideration for concrete contractor, S.B. Ballard Construction Co. of Virginia Beach, Virginia.

Beyond the well-known attributes of speed, aesthetics and economy, S.B. Ballard selected Tilt-Up to alleviate noise from the nearby Naval Air Station as the flight pattern of the jets are within 250-feet of the 27,000-square-foot building's roof.

This atypical box employs a two-story curved glass entrance and aluminum fin designed to add both texture and contrast to building's mass. Office wall panels are clipped short at the building corners to allow for full glass expression, providing contrast and a stronger presentation of the brick inlay panels.

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.
