Sierra Pines II

At six stories, Sierra Pines II is the tallest building constructed with load-bearing tilt-up concrete in Texas. Because there is no precedent for a tilt-up structure of this magnitude, the team relied on LJB’s tilt-up expertise and ingenuity to design the right structural solution for this project.

The 154,000-square-foot office building is vertical in its proportions, which differentiates it from many tilt-up projects. The building’s six stories were constructed with a lower four-story panel and a two-story panel stacked on top. The joints in the panels aren’t vertically aligned, which architecturally breaks down the scale of the building. A ribbed finish, large amounts of glass at the corners and entryway, and sunshade elements add to the architectural appeal of this Class A office building.

At the 2015 Tilt-Up Achievement Awards, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association named Sierra Pines II an Excellence in Achievement winner—that is, an entry that scored highest in architectural and engineering creativity and construction ingenuity.
