Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

IR Bobcat Headquarters

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

IR Bobcat wanted a high-profile facility in the state where "Bobcat' was developed. They chose one of the busiest interstates in North Dakota for its location, and selected Tilt-Up construction as the building method because they were intrigued with the architectural possibilities. Additionally, by providing indoor parking on the lower floor, offices on the main floor and a large conference and training facility on the upper floor, the building was elevated enough to achieve the desired visibility.

The concrete Tilt-Up panels are paired with a pre-engineered Steelox metal building system and a standing-seam metal roof for this 64,374 square foot facility. One of the special features of the concrete Tilt-Up panels is the appearance of a continuous band of windows across the front façade. In reality, every other window is spandrel glass, which covers the concrete panel behind it.

The tallest panel is 40.5 feet tall and the heaviest panel weighs more than 65,000 lbs. The facility was constructed in 285 days.

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.
