Canton Crossing II

Project summary provided by submitting company.

Canton Crossing II is the second phase of the popular shopping center that brought retail to the waterfront neighborhood of Southeast Baltimore. Canton Crossing II is a great example of the tilt-up method of construction. This project's biggest challenge was incorporating numerous high-level architectural finishes. The wood formliner was custom for this project and very unique. Precision Concrete Construction was the concrete trade partner on this project. By using the tilt-up method, we were able to greatly reduce the cost of construction (as opposed to using structural steel and light gauge framing.) The tilt-up panels allowed us to maintain the architectural features without any compromise to the architect's original design. This method also allowed us to meet the quick construction schedule on-time.
