Highland Oaks V

The owners of the Highland Oaks V wanted an office facility that possessed award-winning architectural design. Tilt-Up panels were used to achieve a brick deco look that was durable and economical.

All panels were cast on-site for the three-story 101,985-square-foot facility with custom hand-laid, in-lay brick details. Since the Tilt-Up wall area was greater than the building slab area, two casting slabs on either side of the building were constructed. The panels could not be stacked, because the exterior details were so complex.

The thin-set, clay-fired brick was set by hand in brick forms on the outside face of the panels. Accent brick had to be customarily placed to fit each horizontal window frame.

To accommodate numerous panel openings, full-height strong-backs were transferred forward to expedite Tilt-Up erection. To create the look of a modular brick building, multiple configurations of brick coursing was used including running bond, stack bond and soldier coursing. Throughout the first and second floors, tan coursing brick gave the facility a natural look. 

Highland Oaks V is also a recipient of an Eagle Award from the Association of Builders and Contractors for the 2007 Excellence in Construction Awards program.  The Eagle Award is the highest honor awarded in its category.
