Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

Wellness International Network, Ltd.

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Overview

This was a design/build project for the corporate headquarters of Wellness International located in Legacy Park (Plano, Texas). Using tilt-wall construction was a concern of Legacy's design review committee. Alliance Architect's approach was to utilize rich, natural materials and lush landscaping to highlight the corporate image and to downplay the distribution center. By rusticating the tilt-wall panels, the transition from natural limestone office to the tilt-wall distribution center is virtually indistinguishable.

Features

The project is located in Legacy Park (Plano, Texas). The design review committee of Legacy Park was concerned with the plan to utilize tilt-wall construction and how it would fit into the overall look of the area. Alliance Architect's approach of using materials to blend with the nearby limestone and pronounced landscaping allowed the facility to aesthetically fit into the area.

Recognition

This building and opening of its corporate headquarters, located in North Dallas' prestigious Legacy Business Park campus has cemented the company's stature in the nutritional supplement industry worldwide.

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.
