McKinney Internacional


Arthur McKinney graduated from Virginia Tech with a Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering, Class of 1965. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in Virginia and other states and is a licensed Structural Engineer in Illinois. In 1979 Art founded McKinney & Company, a professional services company providing planning, architecture, engineering, construction management and quality assurance. The firm has offices in Ashland and Williamsburg, Virginia. In early 2000, McKinney incorporated McKinney Internacional and opened a permanent office in the Republic of Panama. McKinney’s market includes logistics, manufacturing, high containment laboratories, biologic process, data centers and related critical facilities. In addition to all discipline technical design capabilities, McKinney is a licensed general contractor and has operated a concrete materials testing laboratory.

In the United States, McKinney has completed numerous large-scale projects which include using load bearing tilt concrete or precast load or non-load bearing concrete wall systems. In 2006, McKinney introduced tilt-up construction to Panama for a biologic process facility at Pacora. (Ray Knotts provided a practical seminar for our bidders and mentored the successful bidder.). This 227,000 square foot complex was constructed using caisson supported, load bearing, stack cast, tilt wall supporting post-tensioned cast-in-place beam and slab second floors.

This has been followed by three projects totaling approximately 700,000 square feet for distribution/logistics at the Port of Colon. These projects used caisson supported, precast floor elements with a cast-in-place topping. Tilt-up wall panels were cast on the supported deck after placing the topping. McKinney completed these projects on a design/build basis.

Art is a past chairman and member of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 360, Design of Slabs-on-Ground, a member of Committee 302, Guide to Concrete Floor and Slab Construction, a member of Committee 117, Specification for Tolerances for Concrete Construction and Materials, and a member of Subcommittee 301G, Specifications for Structural Concrete, Industrial Floors. He currently serves as an instructor for ACI and WOC seminars for Slabon-Ground design and construction.

Art was elected a Fellow of the American Council of Engineering Companies in 1999 and a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute in 2011. Art’s principal interests are capital project budgeting and delivery, forensic analysis and improving technologies related to concrete construction, and consults on large scale industrial projects throughout the United States.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
