The typical tilt panels for Edge @ BRDG were formed so that one side of the panel cantilevers to connect to the adjacent panel. This structural approach allowed the design team to maximize the number of punched openings, introducing ample amounts of daylight into the interior spaces. The typical panels were also poured with thin brick at the first level, giving the appearance that two different types of construction were used to build the shell. Recesses were integrated into the panels and next to the punched openings to house angled ACM panels and create shadow lines to give the facade more depth and variation of texture and material. Edge @ BRDG also features spandrel parapet panels that span between the typical panels. These panels create a continuous crown around the building, while allowing the introduction of large spans of curtain wall into the design.
Edge @ BRDG also features three exposed tilt panels that are the backdrop to the building's main stair. These panels were poured with "v" reveals and 3d-printed cones to create the visual appearance of a smooth monolithic poured wall. These panels are a piece of artwork that celebrate the beauty of tilt construction.
