Project summary provided by submitting company.

Located in an industrial park comprised of small metal building manufacturing facilities, the project owners decided to make a statement with a large tilt-up cross-dock distribution center set in the center of the park. In lieu of a more generic looking metal wall panel exterior, tilt-up concrete was utilized to provide durability, sustainability and a more aesthetically pleasing appearance in order to attract tenants. Designed and completed with a 32’-0” clear height, the tilt-up method of construction also allowed the owner to design a moment frame structural system which utilized no vertical wind bracing to allow future tenants the ability to design racking systems with no interference. During the early stages of construction, the site was inundated with water from Hurricane Harvey and by utilizing the efficiency and fast track delivery method of tilt up construction, the project through dedication and hard work by the entire design and construction team was able to stay on schedule.
