Prescription giant Express Scripts' Class-A office building creates a visual bridge to the Express Scripts corporate campus. The pure form and architectural language respects the existing corporate buildings across the highway while taking cues from the adjacent Technology and Innovation Center.

The design utilized site cast, tilt-up concrete walls, metal panels and highly efficient glass. This 234,000-square-foot office and data center features a 13,000-square-foot data center with high levels of security provisions and backup systems. The core and shell project was completed on a fast-track schedule of 10 months for design and construction.

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.
