Workforce Training Center at RVCC

Project summary provided by submitting company.

This design-build project was one of the first of its kind in the NJ school market. The building owner was not familiar with tilt-up construction, but learned about it through a trusted architectural partner. After visiting an active tilt-up project site with their their architect and design team, the owner opted to use tilt-up construction for his project due to the building system and its simplicity. In the end, the owner saved more than $2 million using tilt-up construction for the new work force building.

The building includes a single-story wing that includes training laboratory spaces for automotive technology, manufacturing, and HVAC curriculum. Adjoining the single-story wing is a two-story wing that includes classrooms on both floors as well as administrative spaces on the ground floor.

The perimeter walls of the building are sandwich-insulated, tilt-up concrete wall panels. Additionally, interior non-insulated tilt-up wall panels are provided at the two stair towers, at the elevator tower, and at the corridor walls dividing the single-story wing.

Unique features include:

  • 12-foot high concrete screen wall around exterior utility yard
  • Detailing of thin brick inlay in wall panels on South, East and North elevations
  • Entry canopy and tilt-up spandrel panels above the main curtain wall entrance
