Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

Fusion Bible Church

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Spiritual Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The design of Fusion Bible Church uses a unique combination of materials and finishes to create an exciting structure that has both modern and traditional elements. The building is composed of large boxes brought together to form the overall design with each box being constructed of tilt-wall panels and having its own unique color/finish pallet. Stained, flat tilt-up panels extend to the inside helping to create a unique and lively atrium. The office block utilizes painted tilt-up panels with form liner accents around the windows. The kids' wing combines paint, stain and form liner within the tilt-wall panels. The youth wing again uses stained flat panels. Decorative pipe railing is introduced as roof screening in this area. These decorative pipe railings continue along the front of the building where a colonnade of large pair-paneled tilt-up panels help create an outdoor patio with the main entry framed by a large stained panel.

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.
