Iron Bridge 1401 Building

Located in an area of Spokane that is in the throes of revitalization, the 24,772-square-foot Iron Bridge 1401 Building is the first step for the rehab project.

Tilt-Up was selected for its ability to provide the aesthetics of brick without efflorescence, the structural integrity of concrete and the cost-effectiveness of the method. The detailed and defined use of brick was noted as unique by the judges.

Winter weather necessitated keeping panels clear of water and snow before concrete placement and the use hydronic heat to cure the panels. The floor slab was used to cast panels three times, because of the inability of stacking due to a gross wall to floor casting slab ratio of 1:26:1. Further, additional casting slabs were unavailable because the parking lot had to be paved before the asphalt plant closed for the winter.

The traditional brick color was employed to be reminiscent of the brickyard that was formerly located on the property. The entry utilized seven small panels to build columns and spandrels of which the four smallest panels are 20-square-feet each.
