The owner of 30,578-square-foot 3949 Forest Parkway wanted a signature building that would be suitable for corporate headquarters. Tilt-Up, already a staple in this business park, was selected because of the energy efficiency, durability and architectural variety that method provides.
Using a combination of 24,000 embedded thin bricks, this one-story office building is accented by a curved glass entryway.
Constructed in only 270 days, the use of a higher strength concrete and admixtures resulted in faster set time and the necessary strength required for lifting during the harsh winter months.
Because of the irregular footprint of the floor slab, there was not enough room to cast the 34 7,500-pound pilasters and caps. These decorative pieces were cast off site and transported to the jobsite to be erected.
