Projects / Industrial / Midwest Terminal Building
Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States and Jonkman Construction has mastered the craft. At least 10,000 buildings enclosing more than 650 million square feet are constructed annually. This is due, in part, to the economics of Tilt-Up, which combine reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction, and minimal capital investment. The process is amazing to see as the building’s walls are poured directly at the job site in large slabs of concrete called “tilt-up panels” or
“tiltwall panels”. These panels are then raised into position around the building’s perimeter forming the exterior walls.
The 100,791 square foot Midwest Terminal Building features the for mentioned Tilt-Up wall construction, a practice made perfect by Jonkman Construction. The exterior features include 22 overhead dock doors with integrated dock levelers at each door. Transition to the warehouse interior through the single “drive in” dock entryway and you will notice the fully sprinkled Early Suppression Fast Response (ESFR) fire suppression system.
