Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

East Lake Point Office Building

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Although it has been done before, a five-story Tilt-Up structure is still unique. However, Commercial Superflat (CSF) had previous Tilt-Up experience in the area and hoped that this building could be showcased to potential clients as well as launch a new market in multi-story Tilt-Up construction. To reduce costs, Commercial Superflat re-used casting beds and broke them up after completion to use for a parking lot base.

Special attention was paid to the color choices, and the three tone scheme of the building complements the forest green glazing and entry porte-cochère canopy.

As a main focus on a prominent roadway in the town of Oldsmar, the owner wanted it to have maximum visual impact. The inlay reveals on the upper entry panels were painted to match the design of the window glazing, and staggered panels at the main and side entries combine with the darker color of the building to provide striking depth and Class A elements.

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.
