Meadow Burke has consolidated its manufacturing, distribution, engineering, and business support functions into a new facility located eight miles from downtown Tampa. Construction of the 48,000-sq.-ft. building consisted of 84 tilt-up concrete panels along with company hardware including Super Lift III Inserts, Slab Brace Bolts and B-75 Wall Brace Inserts.

Officials of Daikin Industries and subsidiary Goodman Global Group, leaders in indoor heating and cooling systems and refrigerants, hosted a late-May dedication of the $400 million-plus Daikin Texas Technology Park (DTTP). Located on a 500-acre site northwest of Houston, the facility is the largest to date built by the tilt-up concrete wall method—its 370 panels measuring more than 2 miles in length.
Judges in the Tilt-Up Concrete Association’s 23rd Annual Tilt-Up Achievement Awards recognized a total of 31 award recipients, and selected 11 overall Excellence in Achievement winners—including the four projects noted here. TCA established the Achievement Awards to honor projects that represent an increasing diversity of building types constructed with site-cast tilt-up concrete as well as those that advance industry technology, apply innovative form and provide unique solutions to building programs.

A new technology sponsorship enables Dayton Superior Corp. to provide tilt-up concrete practitioners running TDS Tilt-Werks software with project data—from material estimates to lifting and bracing requirements, all in real time—to streamline wall design and construction. “Projects developed using Tilt-Werks will have immediate access to our services, starting with preconstruction and continuing all the way to tilt-up lifting and bracing engineering,” says Dayton Superior Director of Engineering Rick Lindstrom.
