Hays Logistics Center

Project summary provided by submitting company.

This project consisted of unique challenges in regards to design and construction of tilt-up concrete wall panels at the building entries. Trapezoidal shaped panels that have a cantilevered span of 30'-0" make up screen walls that separate entries from loading docks. The cantilevers were accomplished by using integral pilasters at each edge of the wall panel. Additional trapezoidal screen panels were utilized at the ends of the building to create a unique covered walkway. The odd shape of the trapezoidal panels called for a unique lifting solution that included the use of temporary tilt-up panel legs that were removed once the structural steel was erected. The entries of the building consist of sloped spandrel panels supported on narrow return panels. The sloped spandrel panels also presented challenges during erection and required special structural steel supports to hold them in place. The erection of this building went smoothly with a lot of communication between the general contractor, architect, erector and structural engineer. This building exemplifies tilt-up construction by it's unique design.
