What was the most challenging aspect of planning for and pouring the panels? Due to smaller building foot print 50% of panels needed to be cast on waste slab casting beds. Also, with the courtyard entrance between both buildings being so close together, crane access in this area of the buildings created the to reset the crane several times for erection.

What was the hardest part about the actual tilt-up erection? Due to the height of the panels it required super 52 braces (52 foot in length braces) which were extremely heavy and required two men per brace. Also, rigging changes due to pick inserts changing from eight to sixteen slowed the panel erection times.

What were the unique design elements related to the tilt-up? The tilt panels had EIFS popouts at the second and third levels, stone veneer from finish floor to bottom of second level as well full height glass pop out curtain wall entrances with cantilevered decks at courtyard between the two buildings.
