Project Details

The pet nutrition company’s new manufacturing facility and laboratory was a complex build that required 155 tilt-up panels over the span of 2007 to 2009.

The client had very high standards when it came to the interior finish of its project, and chose tilt-up primarily because of its durability and its polished interior finish.

To accomplish the monumental feat, the project was built in six phases, highlighted by the construction of the structural core stairwell. This component  was designed as poured in place, but was converted to a combination of tilt-up panels and structural slabs. Once the main floors had been poured and achieved the required strength (five days) the 51-foot-tall panels were erected and the structural steel erection could proceed, saving approximately four weeks on the schedule. The top of the tallest tilt-up panel was 83 feet above ground!
