Building with Tilt-Up | Project Profiles

Highland Oaks III

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Office Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

To create a Tilt-Up office building that would blend in seamlessly with the other brick buildings in a Class A office park, Tilt-Con devoted meticulous attention to detail.

After working closely with the general contractor to convert the building from block to Tilt-Up construction, Tilt-Con made sure the structure’s thin-brick veneer was up to par by molding it with a special formliner and ensuring quality control of the masonry joints.

Adding to the architectural challenges were the difficulties of an aggressive schedule and a tight site with 100-year-old oak trees that had to be protected. Tilt-Con dealt with the space limitations by reusing casting slabs, carefully placing the casting beds around the trees, and working long hours with multiple crews to complete the project on time.

The three-story building is highlighted by a radius entry with large brick columns featuring EFIS bands and precast medallion accent pieces.

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.
