TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Warehouse/Distribution Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Tilt-Up was utilized for these three buildings, totaling 251,400 square feet, because of the architectural freedom provided by the building method, such as the curtain wall above the entries. There is 1/4 inch spandrel glass on an aluminum track, and the tallest panel is about 35 feet, with the heaviest panel weighing about 55,000 lbs.

The completed facilities cost about $22.50 per square foot and construction was completed in 222 days. Meadow Burke accessories and TEX-COTE paint 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.
