Seawalk Performance Pavilion

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Special Projects Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Haskell Company employed Tilt-Up construction to ensure durability for the Seawalk Performance Pavilion in Jacksonville Beach, one of three winners in the Special Projects category. In addition to creating a unique and inviting amphitheater to be enjoyed by the public, requirements for the project included strength against storm winds and wave action, and durability against corrosion.

According to Alan Wilson, Haskell's architect for the project, it was natural to select Tilt-Up construction because load-bearing concrete was the only method capable of providing unique architectural treatment in the form of a durable structure.

The three-dimensional building, boasts a sculptured quality, complete with sweeping curved panels tops, mimicking the form of nearby dunes or ocean waves. The stage roof, which cantilevers 13-feet, reaches out to the audience like a wave preparing to break onto the beach.

Flanking sound wings, where speakers are placed for performances, and rear panels curve outward out-of-plane more than three feet, adding to the structure's sculptural quality.

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.
