Project summary provided by submitting company.
This coatings facility utilizes insulated panels to achieve a clean, hard working surface throughout. The major design complexity of the project is the portion of the building that required internal blast pressures to be withstood. In combination with blast relief glass panels, the roof is reinforced with concrete double tees spanning over 60’. The double tees are supported by insulated Tilt-Up spandrel panels on site cast concrete columns, all designed to resist major internal blast loads. The mission of the Mankiewicz project is to provide a secure, protective building in which internal blast pressures can be withstood. This aspect of construction resulted in a greater necessity of critical thinking and planning to ensure that this unique project's requirements were fulfilled. Tilt-Up construction is critical to Mankiewicz, as it provided the only achievable means in which the building could not only be constructed but be constructed completely in a blast-resistant fashion. This project was a phenomenal success for both Mankiewicz and Citadel Contractors, Inc.
