As an owner of another Tilt-Up building, the owner/developer for this project didn’t hesitate to select Tilt-Up again for their office/retail building in Kansas City’s Zona Rosa development.
Tilt-Up not only allowed for the incorporation of the aesthetic details the company desired, but also enabled a much speedier construction schedule—a mere seven weeks elapsed between starting the footings and erecting the panels.
Special Z-shaped column laps thoughtfully conceal panel joints and maintain the coursing of the cast-in thin-brick veneer on the building’s façade. The brick detailing mingles with cast stone, metal panels, EIFS and direct-applied synthetic stucco to create an eye-catching blend of textures. Circular elements—in the form of two 6-foot-radius, multi-plane, stepped thin-brick arches at the building’s southwest corner—add further architectural interest and help underscore the aesthetic and structural possibilities of Tilt-Up.
