Woodcreek Church

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Spiritual Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Woodcreek Church combines a wide variety of material including tilt-up construction to give an eclectic appearance that has both modern and traditional elements. The simple planer geometry of the tilt-wall panels creates a backdrop off of which play the other elements of the design. Large glass boxes accent the building entries while stone elements highlight the main elevation and covered porches. Multi-colored stained concrete floors and layered walls help create an interior lobby that welcomes visitors and make members feel at home.

The church membership has nearly doubled since the church moved into the new building. Much of that growth could be attributed to the "street appeal" of the design.

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.
