Bringhurst Station

The Bringhurst Station project consist of 9 different tilt-up buildings totaling 1,030,862 square feet. The largest building is 190,953 SF and the smallest is 86,461 SF. The buildings are flex building which can be used for office, warehouse, industrial and or retail, as well as accessory assembly or restaurant occupancies. The buildings are single-story 38 feet tall structures with the flexibility of having mezzanines or second story floors. The tilt-up wall panels are 8 inches thick and constructed using concrete with a compressive strength of 4,500 pounds per square inch. Panels are 42'-6" tall at loading docks. The maximum height to thickness ratio is 63.75 during construction and approximately 57 once the building is completed. Typically height to thickness ratios are recommended at only 48 or 50. These super slender walls are reinforced with only one mat of rebar at the solid section. The city wanted the structures to have the curb appeal of retail buildings. This was accomplished by breaking up the massing by jogging some of the walls and overlapping panels, as well as slightly increasing the height on certain panels. Using different textures and colors also helped to break up the massing. The buildings were designed with a contemporary or modern look at the front and sides. The exterior appears to have brick, wood, and concrete or plaster finishes. The brick is created by using a form liner and is then painted a warm gray color. The wood-look is created by using true-board formed concrete using cedar planks and then staining the concrete. The smooth concrete, or plaster looking surfaces also have reveals and are painted a lighter color. Awnings, sunshades and canopies also cantilever off of the exterior walls creating shadow lines and protecting entries. The truck courts are back-to-back on the interior of paired buildings, in order to partially conceal them and to separate the truck traffic from the car traffic. The main level has large storefront windows with matching storefront windows at the proposed mezzanine level, and smaller clearstory windows are provided in the top half of the adjacent panels, as well as in other panels. These buildings are sustainable and energy efficient. Because there are 9 different buildings of varying sizes and configurations the project has a feeling of a retail center, although the buildings are flex buildings and can have many different uses.

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.
