San Jacinto College Center for Industrial Technology

Tilt-up construction is used as the visible structural element for the new Center for Industrial Technology. Brick and glass are used as infill to express the load-bearing concrete panels. Tilt-up construction is used for both short and long span loads. Panels with integrated concrete columns at the high bay support 10-foot-tall by 110-foot-long trusses. Exposing the structure and mechanical systems allows the college to use the space as a teaching tool for industrial tech curriculum.
