TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Retail Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Tilt-Up was selected for this project for its cost-effectiveness and speed of construction. The goal of this project was to create a shopping center that is varied in massing and materials to accommodate the planned mixed-use.

One of the most difficult challenges of this project was coordinating the multiple brick patterns and four brick colors. Additional challenges included the numerous curved surfaces, panel configuration, and the complex reveal patterns that align with the windows.

Demonstrating the ability of Tilt-Up to excel in multi-story mixed-use developments, this project utilizes a diverse range of architectural treatments including a mix of brick and painted concrete surfaces, EIFS cornices that are applied to panels, and a curved central drum element that is set on Tilt-Up columns.

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.
