Washington Fields Intermediate School

The Washington Fields Intermediate School is a 135,000-square-foot, two-story tilt-up building in St. George. The concrete tilt-up panels are integrally colored and are sandblasted for contrast. Design also included multiple reveals to coordinate with the windows and store front. Many of the panels are curved and were specifically designed to look and feel like venetian plaster and to offer a bulletproof, high-quality finish. Hughes coordinated masonry among the tilt braces to develop a unique combination of interior and exterior tilt-up panels and interior masonry. Unlike typical tilt-up projects, Washington Fields masonry and tilt-up construction happened simultaneously, allowing for better adherence to the school district’s schedule. The tilt-ups were integrally colored using Solomon liquid colors and featured irregular shaped and curving panels. Using different cut depths when sandblasting the panels gives the impression of various colors and textures within the same panel. The project features several curved hanging lintel panels, supported on cast-in-place concrete columns. The columns taper in both directions and are heavily reinforced. These columns were cast using the same colored concrete used for the tilt-up panels.
