iFly - Overland Park

iFly facilities offer a free-fall experience inside a vertical wind tunnel. In this iFly project, over 50 percent of the work was performed below grade. For cost efficiency, tilt-up was chosen for the towers. The towers required three of four panels to lean inward for the first level—a design requiring over 450 embed connections between towers and 6.1 pounds per square foot of reinforcement. Each leaning tower was finished with a 148,000-pound cap.
