Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

Oxford Preparatory School

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Educational Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This school highlights the clean, sharp walls achieved by staggered panel tops and contrasting paint colors. Wide panels were used with staggered panel tops to give the appearance of smaller individual panels. In this project, tilt-up brought simple style to a cost-effective project. Large cast-in letters in the insulated gym wall stand out above a partially freestanding entrance panel. Large canopies with no columns were supported directly by the tilt-up panels.

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.
