Although this building was originally designed with intentions of using conventional building methods, Tilt-Up was ultimately chosen to save the owner approximately $1 million.
As a result of switching methods, Newcomb faced the challenge of maintaining the appearance of the architect’s initial plans. Additional challenges included working with five-story panels and a small, 14,000-square-foot foundation. The 57-foot panels were the tallest Newcomb has worked with in 14 years of Tilt-Up construction.
The visual appearance was enhanced by contrasting red Endicott thin brick and white concrete with a slight color additive.
The building, which also features 18 mitered columns and two 60-degree pointed corners, was listed as one of the top ten concrete building projects to watch in Engineering News Record.
