Hand and Gebel Present at Tilt-Up Convention

ProjectDylanPresentation1

Karen Hand, President at Needham DBS, and Barclay Gebel, VP Operations at Concrete Strategies, teamed up to present the Case Study for Project Dylan to a packed house at the 2019 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo held in Atlanta.

The composite panel industry is on the frontier of emerging design technologies; the innovation is ripe and ready to propel our industry into the future. Project Dylan is a new prototype fulfillment center, and this seminar will use it as a case study to better understand today’s composite panel industry. The warehouse building’s slab-on-grade footprint is approximately 700,000 square feet, and it has an additional 1.95 million square feet of elevated deck. The exterior is clad with 330,000 square feet of insulated tilt-up panels.

The tallest panel stands at just over 81 feet tall, meaning Concrete Strategies (CSI) set a company record for the tallest tilt-up panel ever erected on a project, and an industry record for the tallest composite panel ever constructed. This was accomplished by using an innovative composite panel design by Needham DBS and Meadow Burke’s Super 62.
