The Tilt-Up Concrete Association recently held its annual conference where the winners of the 2012 Tilt-Up Award were announced. The Sentry Gateway Business Park in San Antonio, TX received an award in the Office Division category. The 99,000 ft2 building is nearly 50 percent glass-to wall ratio and balances the structural aspect of the walls with an open appearance.
By using tilt-up construction the perimeter of the building was erected in three days which was a major advantage to the project. The building is designed to LEED Gold criteria and is currently in the process of becoming certified.
EE Reed was the General Contractor for the project and Urban Concrete Contractors was the sub-contractor. Rudy Gonzales (03) worked with Urban Concrete on this project to rent the tilt-wall brace package and sold SILCOSEAL 2000F bondbreaker, 10mil Stego wrap, Greenstreak formliner, banak reveal, and e-z chairs.
Thanks to Rudy for the information for this story and his hard work on this project.
