Sierra Pines II

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Sierra Pines II is the first of its kind in the state of Texas - a six-story tilt-up office building. Comprised of two stacked panels, the bottom a four-story and the top a two-story, the total height of the panels spans over 90-feet. Phase II follows the highly successful, and prior 2011 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Award winner, Sierra Pines I in the already highly competitive industry of office space. Considered by many as a Class A office building, Sierra Pines II brings the look and feel that you would expect to see in high-end upscale larger markets to suburban Houston. The building features a two-story lobby, floor-to-ceiling windows, and grand views from upper floors to give the building the feel of a typical cast in place office building. The complex is landscaped with multiple water features and an expansive garden.

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.
