Tilt-Up was selected for this 10-building project for its speed of delivery and ability to provide the architect’s vision within the budget constraints. Although the complex consisted of several buildings with a common theme, each building has its own unique features.
The sequencing of construction necessitated that work began on one end of the site and worked to the other. To keep the construction pace, the contractor would prepare the floor slabs for the buildings ahead of the construction process to use them as casting beds for adjacent buildings.
With a Southwestern theme, cream colors with tile inlay and blue and red colored accents were used. Tile accents were used at the walkway and along the face of the panels.
All of the panels along the walkway have a wainscot of sandstone formliner. Along the arched colonnade, the panel legs were thickened to provide architectural mass as well as to enable a tile inset to be placed along the arch. These thickened legs were eliminated above the soffit to reduce panel and weight and facilitate lifting.
Main entries on a few of the buildings feature three panels that are placed directly in front of each other, thru-bolted for stability. These panels varied in height and shape to create a substantial architectural accent.
All building façades had formliners used for architectural accents. Reveals varied from simple horizontal and vertical lines to diagonal diamonds across the whole panel. One of the buildings features reveal lines that are curves and circles that wrap around the corners of the buildings and are broken by openings.
The center provides an entertainment venue that complements the hotel gaming experience that is also found on the site.
