This $77 million school being built in western Olathe, Kan., includes 227 tilt-up panels. Bracing the panels was a challenge with several tilt-up sub-buildings inside the building and three levels of structural steel.
The focal points of the high school will be the Learning Commons, a three-story lobby connecting to an open media center, and the Learning Communities, four wings where students will attend regular classes. It will be finished for the 2017-18 school year.
Odyssey Lone Elm- Lithko Kansas City and Merit General Contractors, Inc. teamed up on this 500,000 square-foot tilt-up warehouse in which some panels were designed taller than 50 feet.
Lithko partnered with Bracket Builders on the Hilton at Polaris in Columbus, Ohio. The elevator tower included tilted cores with the tallest panel reaching 85 feet.
The College Crossings Buildings I J project consisted of two tilt-up warehouse buildings that totaled 250,000 square feet. Lithko partnered with Merit General Contractors on this project, which took about six months to complete. Working through the winter created some challenges.
