FAU Lifelong Learning Center

A longtime supporter of Tilt-Up construction (the method has been used to construct several other structures on campus, including a student housing facility), Florida Atlantic University had no doubts about turning to Tilt-Up again for its Lifelong Learning Center.

To create a friendly, welcoming environment for the center’s older students, Woodland Construction incorporated design features such as an open-air entry and covered walkways surrounding a courtyard, as well as distinctive architectural elements such as varying reveal lines that delineate color changes on the building’s façade.

Composed of two classroom wings adjacent to an auditorium, the structure is joined by two identical Tilt-Up towers at the entry to each wing. Because construction occurred while classes were still in session in other buildings, Woodland had limited access to the site. In addition, the sloped floor of the auditorium necessitated the use of casting beds to form most of the project’s panels.

The Lifelong Learning Center provides a space for non-credit, university-level classes for adults in the community.
