This 94,000 SF new self-storage facility was built using tilt-up construction. This technique allows the envelope of a building to be erected quickly and in larger sections than other methods. The CubeSmart facility offers 642 storage units in a climate-controlled setting. 24-hour video monitoring and bright interior and exterior lighting are also key features.

This project used tilt-up construction in a unique manner. Instead of merely pouring concrete, standing up the slabs, and painting them, this brick facade was cast-in with the tilt panels. The bricks were laid face down, then the concrete was poured on top of that. The project also used a wide variety of form liners to achieve an eye-catching texture in the building’s facade.

The project was recognized with the 2019 Tilt-Up Achievement Award from the Tilt-Up Concrete Association.
