Tilt-up Works on Small Buildings
A 6,500 Square Foot Tilt Up Building adjacent to a building and parking garage Under Construction?.... Impossible!
Not only possible, but Summit Concrete did two of them at the same time!
10% Cost Savings
After the overwhelming success of the Old Navy, Blackford and Staples Buildings at Zona Rosa, the Owner and Architect raised the bar even further and challenged Summit Concrete to design-build two 6,500 S.F. retail liner buildings adjacent to the Dillard’s Building and Parking Garage. By utilizing tilt-up, the owner saved 10% of the building cost.
No loss of time on Project Schedule
All buildings were to be under construction at the same time and, in addition, part of one liner building’s concrete panels bear on the Dillard’s Parking Garage foundation wall.
Summit Concrete provided valuable assistance in the coordination of construction activities to ensure all projects did not lose valuable time.
Pilaster & Spandrel cAst into Tilt-Up Panels
These buildings used a unique Tilt-Up method of pilaster & spandrel panels to maximize casting space and create and open and airy feeling all the while maximizing store front exposure.
Thin Brick Cast into Tilt-up Panels
Each building was almost entirely comprised of cast-in thin brick using integrally colored concrete to create colored mortar joints.
Achieve Columnar Effect with Tilt-Up
To create a columnar effect, brick was staggered in and out of plane to provide the visual depth the Architect desired. Basket weave and soldier course pattern were also used.
Some additional building finishes were cast stone, EIFS cornice work, and imported hand-painted ceramic tile.
