Project summary provided by submitting company.
The Knudsen Park project involved heavy community input (city council meetings, etc.) prior to construction commencement. The 6.1-acre park was a former dump site that was revised and recycled without the export of aggregate. Completed Knudsen Park includes grassy fields, a board-form concrete pavilion, playground, water play space, hammock garden, bridge and outdoor classroom. Knudsen Park displays a tilt-up outbuilding and connected pavilion that has historic reference. Historically the park area included a historic mill and residential housing for the Knudsen family. In an effort to preserve the mill’s significance, the team designed a concrete board-form tilt-up outbuilding and pavilion with equal design and dimensions to the old mill. The 72-by-24-square-foot structure incorporated integral coloring and historically accurate louvers. The design also combined modern LED lighting and tongue-and-groove features. A bronze plaque commemorating the Knudsen family’s history is also attached to the outbuilding.
The Tilt-Up Achievement Awards were established to honor projects that use site-cast tilt-up concrete to introduce new building types, advance industry technology and provide unique solutions to building programs. Winning entries illustrate the variety, beauty, and flexibility of tilt-up construction.
The excellence designation is given to the highest scoring projects each year representing the top 10-12 projects. Learn more >
