Needing to vacate their current facility because of an eminent domain matter, this owner selected Tilt-Up because it was shown to minimize the total cost and construction time.
The most challenging aspect of this unique project was the owner’s desire to achieve flawless recessed artwork in the panels. The goal of the unique artwork was to capture the same Art Deco era feel as the company’s previous facility that was constructed in the 1940s. But, the artwork – created by hand-carved foam – had to be sandblasted without destroying the finer aspects of the work.
The panels were poured directly over the foam, so that the detailed artwork was cast directly into the concrete.
The painted exterior and textural stucco offset the smooth glassy look of the panels that feature the WunderFixx® product. Textured EIFS columns and recessed chevrons on the roof of the building added architectural appeal.
