Southpark 1400

When contracted to construct a three-story office building in the South Park Center in Orlando, Fla., Seretta Construction faced some exacting requirements that presented plenty of construction challenges.

To start, the owner had requested that the panels be erected without leave-out strips for a seamless fit, requiring Seretta to form the slab edge so it would fit perfectly flush with the ground-floor openings and the inside of the Tilt-Up wall, leaving little room for error.

The building’s unique reveals (comprising one mile of the total surface area) were also atypical—instead of 45-degree beveled strips, they were 1-inch deep with a ¼-inch bevel. The panel joints were also designed to resemble the reveals, disguising them and adding further architectural interest to the structure.

In addition to the slab and Tilt-Up walls, Seretta also constructed the foundations, upper floors and roof slab for the 118,208-square-foot building, which received an Award of Merit for Excellence in Construction from the Association of Builders and Contractors of Central Florida.
