The Boca Village Corporate Center, a class "A" four-story office building atop a three-story parking garage, sets a new standard by being the first LEED-certified development in the heart of Boca Raton. By using Tilt-Up construction, the subcontractor was able to build a more economical building that took up less land, while accommodating an accelerated schedule and preserving the overall vision.
Architectural features included various size radius panels, spandrel panels and panels off-set at a 15-degree angle. The Boca Village Corporate Center is also comprised of other various shaped panels that required detailed expertise and attention-to-detail, thereby delivering the architect's design in a more economical way. Originally, this project was going to be built as two separate cast-in-place structures with architectural precast cladding. Instead, the contractor stacked the structures and used a hybrid concrete frame with load bearing Tilt-Up panels and onsite non-load bearing architectural panels.
Due to this method of construction, the owners were able to save money, bringing a financial return to the developers. Recently, the Central Florida Chapter of Associated Builders and Contractors acknowledged the Boca Village Corporate Center with its highest award, the 2008 Eagle Award.
