Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

2310 Crossroads

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Although this building was originally designed with intentions of using conventional building methods, Tilt-Up was ultimately chosen to save the owner approximately $1 million.

As a result of switching methods, Newcomb faced the challenge of maintaining the appearance of the architect’s initial plans. Additional challenges included working with five-story panels and a small, 14,000-square-foot foundation. The 57-foot panels were the tallest Newcomb has worked with in 14 years of Tilt-Up construction.

The visual appearance was enhanced by contrasting red Endicott thin brick and white concrete with a slight color additive.

The building, which also features 18 mitered columns and two 60-degree pointed corners, was listed as one of the top ten concrete building projects to watch in Engineering News Record.

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.
