Broadview Public School was a complex job with an aggressive construction timeline. Most of the tilt-up panels were built during the winter months. This school was designed using concrete to show case the creative style of the architect firm. From beautiful and bold imprints to traditional brick this school demonstrates the wide variety of finishes that tilt-up can achieve with ease. Using insulated tilt-up sandwich panels allowed for an energy efficient school at costs that rival traditional construction methods.
