Polished concrete is a beautiful, durable, low maintenance finish. Until lately it has been limited to horizontal surfaces. Past attempts at vertical applications have often failed to match the consistency and quality clients are used to in floors. Today, the tilt-up construction method is proving to be an efficient and reliable means to high-quality polished concrete walls. This presentation will feature two St. Louis area projects, the expansion of the Saint Louis Art Museum and Pfizer Bioplace, employing the tilt-up building system to deliver stunning wall panels. Barclay Gebel, vice president of field operations for Concrete Strategies will discuss each projects’ approach including mix design, polishing process and equipment, lifting and bracing, finishing and more. He will also highlight the benefits of tilt-up that make this finish practical.
Attendees will get a behind the scenes look at the construction of the monumental polished tilt-up panels making up the Saint Louis Art Museum's new building.
The Saint Louis Art Museum, Located in Forest Park in Saint Louis, Missouri, is situated atop Art Hill overlooking the Grand Basin, the central gathering place for the 1904 World's Fair. Designed by renowned American architect Cass Gilbert, the Saint Louis Art Museum's original structure was the only building from the World’s Fair designed to be permanent. The 200,000 square foot addition, designed by London architect David Chipperfield, consists of large, clean expanses of glass and monumental planes of highly polished black concrete. The stark contrast created by the simplicity and darkness of the expansion keeps clean the reading of the original building and establishes a somewhat submissive attitude while sustaining its own sense of monumentality.
