The Pointe 14

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Tilt-up construction allowed for many unique features on this building. Towers were built with flag-shaped tilt-up panels that required very long strongbacks. While proving to be initially difficult, the strongbacks and their length allowed for remarkable features to be emphasized on the building. All the demising walls were tilt-up, and thus were not chamfered to give continuity to the carpet and wood trip. Additionally, all exterior walls were insulated, bringing about a necessity for increased attention to detail on this project.

Stone Theatres has always counted on the expedited schedule tilt-up offers. With movie bookings in advance of construction, the eight month schedule to opening requires tilt-up's ability to get the project under roof faster than any other method.

With 30% more tilt-up wall area than floor area, Citadel utilized numerous stacks and phased construction to enhance the schedule. Within six weeks, critical path, interior framing, and MEP rough-ins were started.
