Republic National Distributing Company

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This facility is the new Nebraska office / distribution facility for Republic National Distributing Company, which moved from an existing Omaha location. The purpose was to create a signature local appearance for a national distributor of wine and spirits.

The frontal elevation of the building is significantly lower than the street lever and is separated from the street by a parking deck. The intent was to create a unique architectural feature at the building entrance to overcome a challenging site. This project features a group of three leaning tilt panels unfolding from the main building facade into bridge connecting to the parking deck. The folding feature continues into the main lobby space as a soaring twenty five foot high clerestory allowing light to penetrate deeper into the space. The building features an open mezzanine with cut outs for future windows.

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.
