LJB provided tilt-up wall panel engineering for this 48,000-square-foot building that includes manufacturing space and corporate office for a leading additive manufacturer in the aerospace and defense industry. The advanced facility boasts $25M worth of equipment, including medium and large-format metal 3D printing systems, EDM’s post processing machines, wet-booths, and several furnaces. The facility is comprised of three distinct portions. The outdoor mechanical yard at the northeast corner is enclosed with free-standing tilt-up panels screening the equipment from perimeter views. The northern portion of the facility houses a combination of high-bay and two-story manufacturing space to support the company’s functional needs. The southern portion has additional manufacturing space on the ground floor, but primarily functions as the customer reception on the ground floor coupled with corporate offices on the second floor.
This project received a 2020 Tilt-Up Achievement Award from the Tilt-Up Concrete Association.
