American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP)

The American College of Emergency Physicians' new headquarters consists of a uniquely shaped three-story tilt-up office space. Due to the radius shape of the north and south walls, the panels' edges had to be beveled to maintain a clean caulk joint. The U-shaped entry panel, which was supported on 6-foot-wide integral legs, was tilted without cracking or snapping a leg due to careful engineering and reinforcing. In addition, the project team overcame site constraints of close proximity to a major airport and a service road.
