Requiring unusually high structural strength to protect the millions of daily banking transactions from intrusions of natural disasters, the Silas Center—a 170,000-sq.-ft. banking operations facility—also needed an aesthetically pleasing exterior to complement its upscale location.
To protect banking operations, Tindall satisfied security requirements with exceptional precast, prestressed concrete wall panels and precast framing throughout that met or surpassed building code requirements. Tindall delivers a wide array of products and specialized solutions.
