Pinch Office and Warehouse Facility

Located near a major airport, the owners of the Pinch Office Warehouse Facility were in search of a facility capable of significantly reducing the sound-level of airplane traffic. The Tilt-Up method was used to mask the sound of airport operations and guarantee a durable structure. The method also ensures the efficient use of space for the 16,500-square-foot office and 76,320-square-foot warehouse. Because of the flexibility of the Tilt-Up method, the owner has plans to expand the facility. Crews had to utilize a pre-engineered metal roofing system with Tilt-Up wall panels.

The novel architectural design for the building called for exposed ceilings, aluminum sun shading screens and a standing seam metal roofing system. A medium texture elastomeric paint and Low-E glass were used to enhance the architecture.

The design-scheme features clustered and isolated gabled roof forms, asymmetric chevrons, a workout room with gabled coves and a vaulted entry.

The Tilt-Up method allowed the owners to construct a building that would increase its efficiency level for corporate operations and its shipping interface. As a third-party shipper, turnaround times and inventory tracking became more feasible with the innovative construction of the 92,820-square-foot facility.
