Concrete’s inherent durability made Tilt-Up the choice for a unique project -- a basement that houses the mechanical equipment for the campus of a leading life science research company.
Once complete, the 80-acre campus will encompass nearly one million square feet of laboratory, office, assembly and support spaces. In order to maximize the efficiency of the buildings on the site, it was decided to house the 46,118-square-foot Central Utility Plant (CUP) within a basement beneath the three-story building.
Judges selected this project for the Technical Innovation award because it presented Tilt-Up as a structural element in a new way. The contractor determined that Tilt-Up provided a distinct advantage over competing building methods; approximately 90 days were saved in the construction schedule with a construction cost savings of approximately $300,000.
