Despite a site designed for CMU, tilt-up was ultimately chosen for the Berkeley Preparatory School Gries Center for its speed, cost and flexibility. The project's primary challenge was the amount of panel, nearly doubling the building footprint, and limited areas where temporary casting slab could be utilized. The 119 panels, ranging from 7-1/4 inchs to 12-1/4" inches thick, were cast double and sometimes triple "stacked" in a sequence that allowed erection of panels to be picked one time as they were designed.
