The Cranberry Crossroads project demonstrates a creative, economical use of tilt-up for a three-story, Class A office space. Al. Neyer and Elmhurst utilized tilt-up as a solution in a region where it's not often utilized.
The seven-week construction period included 530 labor-days dedicated to tilt-wall completion. With only 30,034 square feet of slab and 28,436 square feet of wall panels, the construction team had to stack panels, at times three-high. As such, panel placement was well planned, and the bracing of each panel was clear from any other panels.
To meet the project's challenges, the superintendent decided to brace the majority of the panels to the outside. The crew minimized crane downtime while using repetition with stacking boxes to make formwork, reinforcing, rustication and brick inlay work more efficient.
This aesthetically pleasing office building features recesses, brick inlays, window details, stiff-backs and stay-forms.
