Hyla U.S.

Creating a corporate office facility to entertain foreign clients and impress them with the corporate image of quality was an important goal of the German-based Hyla Company. Tilt-Up provided the owner with a strong, durable and watertight facility that offered crisp edges and smooth panel faces.

This was a small building on a tight sight, which allowed for limited crane movement. As a mixed-use facility offering both office and warehouse storage space, occupancy separations were naturally created by the Tilt-Up panels.

Recognizing that block and granite was cost prohibitive, a simulated granite panel wainscot was used to make the project affordable. The simulated granite panels were created with reveals and multiple layers of textured paint. Porte cochere was cast in four pieces and tilted as one component. Additional architectural features included balcony projections with Tilt-Up deck and floor panels, as well as tower panels articulated with simulated granite wainscot with bold, rounded window openings to create a striking clean and crisp elevation.
