Telos U.

The client had a relatively small site and needed gyms, dorms, offices/administrative spaces, and good street visibility within a tight budget. To fit all of the required spaces on the small site and within the budget, the project team designed a five-story structure out of architectural tilt-up concrete. The site was previously an old landfill, and so it required extensive preparation and conditioning. The ground was sloping. In order for our crane to lift the massive tilt-up panels (weighing over 100,000 pounds), it cannot stand on a slope. To overcome this challenge, we drove the crane onto the slabs, picked up the panels and backed out, lifting as we went. The treatment center is approximately 70,000 square feet. It is made of architectural tilt-up concrete with varying textures and heights. Thin bricks are cast into some of the panels to evoke an educational atmosphere.
