Matan Companies and Morgan-Keller Construction Host Tilt-Up Party for Wedgewood West Industrial Park
Frederick, MD, May 23, 2016– Matan Companies and Morgan-Keller Construction hosted a “tilt-up” party on Thursday, May 18th to celebrate the construction progress for Wedgewood West Industrial Park in Frederick, MD.
Wedgewood West is a six building park totaling 675,000 square feet of state-of-the-art 30’ clear warehouse space located at the corner of New Design Road and English Muffin Way.
The first phase of the project, which is the construction of 180,000 square feet in two buildings (B & F), is projected to be completed this summer. The remaining four buildings, which make up phase two, will begin delivery in 2017.
“Tilt-up concrete construction is a proven method for building office buildings, retail centers, warehouses, and laboratories with speed, safety, and construction cost benefits,” said Karl Morris, Director of Development for Matan Companies. “In a tilt-up construction project, the building's walls are poured directly at the jobsite in large slabs of concrete called "tilt-up panels”. These panels are then raised into position around the building's perimeter, forming the exterior walls.” Tilt-up construction allows general contractors to build a wide range of commercial buildings more quickly and with lower construction costs than what is typical for traditional masonry construction projects.
