TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Educational Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Tilt-Up Concrete built this attractive structure for their renter to operate a combination roller rink, game center and food court with office facilities.

Designed by architect Hutchinson Design, the 37,500 square foot building presents a pleasingly playful and colorful image, consistent with its occupancy. The building is striking in its simplicity. The free form of the front wall combined with the random cut openings would be difficult if not impossible with most other forms of construction.

The retrained use of primary colors give the facade a refined but interesting appearance.

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.
