Tilt-Up Contractor: Lithko Contracting, Inc. (Kansas City, KS)
Lifting Hardware/Engineer: Meadow Burke
Initial drawings called for cast-in-place walls for each of these elevator/stairwell cores. After some brainstorming and value-engineering along with acceptance from the engineer, it was converted to Tilt-Up. The exterior of the cores will all be covered with drywall. The interior of the stairwell cores will remain exposed.
The final appearance of the interior of the stairwell was a huge selling point in converting from cast-in-place to Tilt. There are absolutely no form joints or construction joints in the stairwell.
