Chamberlin Roofing & Waterproofing

Tilt-up was chosen as the delivery method for its ease of design, speed of construction and ability to fit into the over-all concept of the building design. The facility was laid out in a manner as to allow the user and visitor to enter the facility in a more formally designed public area, then progress to a business level designed office area, and then into the warehouse/shop area at the back of the building. Tilt-wall allowed the entry and formal area the flexibility to incorporate two different glass systems while still giving the elevations a sense of structure and support.

In the office/business area, column spacing was achieved that worked with the owner's proposed arrangement of offices and furniture, taking advantage of a more open feel throughout. The warehouse/shop area tilt-wall allowed for larger volume and less columns. As with the office area, not having columns around the perimeter of the building, gave it a smoother and cleaner appearance. At the same time, it allowed for a reduced amount of steel and therefore a portion of the cost.

Many rain days were encountered during the course of construction. The ease and speed at which a tilt-wall panel system could be poured and then erected, helped reduce the number of days lost.
