This project marks a milestone, because it used Tilt-Up for the entire facility to provide the owners with reduced costs, shorter schedule, increased durability and better sound control.
The size of the facility required multiple stack castings in an unusual environment where all the demising walls were Tilt-Up.
Focused on the entrance, the exterior architecture is a mix of fine coatings, trimmed box offices, curved canopy, arched inlaid brick and glass. The front entrance utilized thin brick set into a series of arches, which required four arched panels set front-to-back with a half-inch joint.
The largest curved panel weighed 131,670 pounds.
It has proven to be a popular destination and Tilt-Up achieved what the architect wanted.
