When the owner of the office building at One Mansfield Crossing selected Tilt-Up construction, saving money was the primary driver, but maintaining architectural quality was also a major consideration. The project’s architect, who had never worked with Tilt-Up construction before, designed a brick façade, segmented radius building that incorporated relief panels to add visual interest.
To conceive this challenging design, DIVCON used 11 5/8-inch panels with varying depths of foam recesses. Because of the curved-wall design, careful consideration had to be taken when laying out the panels to make sure they would all fit together correctly and that all the reveals would be consistent once the panels were erected. To match the columns on the trellis entry to the panels’ brick façade, thin brick was installed on three sides of the column form and then wet-set on the remaining side as the concrete was placed.
This building, an architectural beacon in the suburban Spokane Valley area, is one of the flagship structures in Mirabeau Point, an 80-acre mixed-use development visible from Interstate 90.
