This ground-up new industrial construction project involved a total square footage is 146,031 square feet of office and industrial warehouse space. Tilt-wall construction was utilized throughout, with a poured-in-place foundation of footers, pads, and slabs on grade.
Tilt-wall construction is an outstanding building technique for projects of this size and type, involving the on-site pouring of concrete walls that are then tilted up by crane to create the industrial facility’s outer shell, to which the roof is attached. The project benefits from tilt-wall’s inherent speed as an industrial construction method. Also, the use of concrete for the outer walls of such facilities brings advantages in structural integrity, building envelope performance, and even energy consumption.
The new warehouse consists of fifteen individual tenant bays, each incorporating office, restroom, and warehouse areas in a basic configuration with a future premise of customization per each tenant’s needs. The bays, when initially completed, are turnkey ready and available for immediate occupancy if desired. The entire structure has HVAC and commercial ventilation devices throughout.
The warehouse is equipped with exterior access bay doors for commercial use. The building also encompassed all systems to code, including, but not limited to, all life safety and fire protection devices. At Link, we believe this industrial construction project is an outstanding example of the speed and early occupancy capabilities that come from the use of innovative tilt-wall construction.
