Ritchie Paving Corporate Offices

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The Ritchie Paving Corporate Offices building in Wichita, Kansas, presents an impressive façade and interior to company workers and visitors alike. The 12,700 square foot building was completed December 9, 1994, at a square foot cost of $48.00.

On the exterior, the design incorporates wing walls that add interesting angles and complement a unique, jutting entryway that features the company’s name and logo. A curved entry roof provides a nice departure and contrast to the sharp angles. Functional sun-screen louvers supported by the wing walls extend the color accents of the structure. Decorative aggregate and a sandblast finish complete the look.

Inside, the use of interesting angles continues throughout. Clustered work areas are separated by low divider walls that offer privacy yet afford easy communication. There is an impression of space and light throughout the interior, and this is accomplished by using raised center ceilings in the various work and use areas, and by suspended lighting throughout.

All of these features make the Ritchie Paving building a more functional and pleasant working environment for offices and training.

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.
