Boulevard at the Capital Centre

The construction of a Main Street-style retail center in Landover, Md., was made far more challenging by wintry weather conditions that required the use of soil cement and ground heaters. Additionally, the ten-building project was constructed in a limited amount of space, necessitating the stacking of panels.

Tilt-Up construction allowed the contractor to work within a tight schedule, and the use of Tilt-Up panels facilitated raising the height of the walls for a false second-story appearance. Thin brick, painted PVC, arriscraft stone and cast-in reveals with accent paint further enhanced the aesthetics of the retail space.

Judges noted that the diversity of form and finish on this project clearly dispels all preconceptions that Tilt-Up is a solution only for boxes. In addition, the combination of Tilt-Up with other forms, shapes and materials makes this a truly delightful project.
