Speed up construction . . . without exceeding the budget.
A tight schedule, limited budget, and a two-story, mixed-use structure required a creative, cost-effective, and rapid precast solution. Tindall delivered by erecting Lindbergh Plaza in just 50 days. Our creative, time-saving solution involved using an adjacent Target store’s roof as the structural system to support upper-level tenants and parking. Extensive field expertise and superior engineering team gave Tindall—and our clients—the edge.
