The Lakeland Developments Warehousing Project was a prime example of the speed of tilt-up construction. By utilizing Helix 5-25, panel construction was completed in about 1 month with panel erection occurring in just over 8 hours.
In addition to a short construction schedule, tilt-up construction helped reduce overall costs for this warehouse. By using insulated tilt panels, the building owners will be able to operate the space more efficiently over time, due to lower energy demands and the durability and safety of concrete.
The 13,600-sq. ft. structure was intended as a leasable warehouse space. So, whereas other projects may have involved specific requirements for a particular industry or company, the Lakeland Developments Warehouse was more standardized.
