Denver, Colo. (Sept. 16, 2016) – Value Plastics, an EnCon project in Loveland, Colorado, is a winner of the Tilt-Up Achievement Award from the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA). Winners of this award represent the industry’s best tilt-up projects. The awards program serves to promote and recognize members of the TCA, as well as furthering the awareness of the potential of tilt-up concrete construction.
The Value Plastics project will be featured in TILT-UPTODAY and employees will be presented with a plaque for this achievement at the Tilt-Up Awards Gala during the 2016 TCA Convention in Denver, Colorado on October 10. All winners are also eligible to win the prestigious Excellence in Achievement designation that will be announced during the Awards Gala.
A collaborative design-build team including Golden Triangle Construction, Powers Brown Architecture, Peak Engineering, Inc., and EnCon Construction participated in creation of the 113,800 square foot project. Tilt-up precast concrete was determined to be the most efficient method to fast-track this project. Insulated thermal panels were cast on site and the smaller solid wall panels were cast at EnCon’s precast concrete plant and delivered to the project site. After concrete production, all panels were erected over a 17 day period.
EnCon provided 95 pieces of 12 1/4″ insulated structural grey panels and solid structural grey panels, weighing up to 153,000 pounds. Value Plastics is a high tech manufacturing facility that utilized insulated tilt wall panels to obtain a higher project R-value. Thermomass non-composite pins connect a 7 1/4″ structural wythe to a 3″ architectural wythe with 2″ of XPS insulation sandwiched in between. These panels feature a board-form finish to accentuate specific building elements.
