TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

A box warehouse just wouldn't work for Trends Clothing Corp. as a home for fashion must be fashionable.

The 247,000-square-foot facility in Miami, Florida, with Tilt-Up constructed by Tilt-Con Corporation, features curved panels set upon two 13-foot-8-inch high columns at the entrance. Each column has a 2.5-foot diameter with 2-inch wide reveals set at equal distances. Through trial and error, the team was able to overcome the difficulty of lining up the reveal forms that encircle these formed columns.

Placed above these curved panels are perfectly flat Tilt-Up panels set at slight angles to form a semicircular pattern. The parapets are then capped with decorative foam.

Beige, moss green and tan paint coordinate with green tinted tempered glass and lush foliage and unique tropical palms enhance the structure to create a spectacular South Florida design.

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.
