Design-Build Tilt-Up Works with Hard-Bid Scenario on Public Projects
Our Hard bids are Hard to Beat
Design-Build, Public Project and Hard Bid.
Henry County was looking to save money by opening up to competitive bids for the 42,000 S.F. project. By using our tilt-up system, our bid beat the precast competitors price by $80,000.
Tilt-Up saves costs on Structural Steel & Framing
In addition, $30,000 were saved in structural steel due to the load bearing capacity of our tilt-up walls. Tilt-up walls also eliminated the need for metal stud framing and conventional brick installation for the office panel.
This project used insulated panels with the exterior wythe that has an exposed aggregate finish. We are exposing the aggregate using an acid etching method. The concrete also has integral color.
The tallest panels at the detention center are 27’11” tall. The office panels have cast in brick and the same integral color and acid etching below the brick.
Since the Detention Facility's area slab will not be poured until after the walls are completed and the interior CMU has been installed, we cast the panels on 12,000 S.F. of casting beds and some in the area of the office slab.
This building has a 35,000 S.F. footprint with a 5,500 S.F. mezzanine in the detention center for a total of 42,000 S.F. area.
