TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Manufacturing/Industrial Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

This 52,000 square foot project, constructed in 150 days for a cost of $10.96 per square foot, is interesting due to its aesthetic mix of reveal, formliner, columns and glazing. Ten 25-foot tall cast-in-place columns provide an appealing look, especially combined with the Tilt-Up spandrel panels. Extensive glasswork at the main entrance also provides an excellent focal point for the Tilt-Up panels.

Due to the trench and equipment requirements of the manufacturing facility, there was limited casting area on the floor slab so exterior casting beds were utilized. Panels were erected from the exterior of the building utilizing a 160-ton crane, with the heaviest panel weighing more than 75,000 lbs. and the tallest measuring almost 42 feet high.

Dayton-Richmond accessories were utilized.

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.
