48Rock

Located in Lincoln's University Place, 48ROCK is part of University Pointe, a planned development designed to revive the historic neighborhood. For the building that is home to their own offices, the contractor wanted to create a unique modern structure that bridges the gap between the University Place neighborhood's historical architecture and today's contemporary buildings.

The structure features a prominent entry tower that showcases the innovative combination of Tilt-Up and pre-engineered building systems, while the exterior was lightly sandblasted to highlight the natural beauty of the concrete. Inside, the open ceiling and exposed walls provide a working classroom to educate the contractor's clients about the advantages of Tilt-Up construction.

The use of sandwich-insulated Tilt-Up wall panels in concert with a Geo Exchange HVAC system reduces overall energy use in the building, and casting beds were recycled into crushed aggregate and used as a sub-base for the parking lot.

The contractor hopes efforts like these will earn the structure Lincoln's first privately-owned LEED Gold certification.
