Located in the PGA corridor in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., owners wanted a headquarters with dynamic design. The speed and quality of Tilt-Up was used to meet the complex building and design requirements.
With an exquisite three-story central area flanked on the sides by two-story elements, Tilt-Up panels needed large openings to allow for office circulation. The panels had to be braced to the inside and outside of the facility. This created construction congestion and challenges during the panel and floor erection process. To remedy these challenges, the interior three-story panels were brought to the ground as load bearing and wind resisting elements.
Front entry to the 133,143-square-foot headquarters consists of three sets of stacked Tilt-Up panels supported by steel columns that are wrapped with architectural precast to create a faux third-story balcony. The rear balcony, which fronts the main road, has 16-inch thick arched panels that support the second floor balcony. The front and back façades have balconies that are accessible on the second floor and feature elements on the third floor.
Full of vigor, the applied architectural precast elements include precast moldings, keystones, precast railings and precast column wraps. The color-scheme features are creams and beiges with a light mustard yellow accent used on the main feature elements. These are topped with a multi-color red tile roof. Lit up at night, the 60-foot exit stair Tilt-Up panels were used to create tower elements. The entire hipped mansard roof line has intermediate pop-up tower features that create interest on all sides of the building. The roof overhang is accented with dentils.
The interior of the headquarters resembles an “intimate” setting, similar to a smaller office facility.
