Tindall innovation puts manufacturing construction in motion in record time.
Precast concrete provides the edge needed to produce facilities faster and more efficiently, with greater durability and versatility.
The Tindall Precast Advantage
Precast provides much-needed design flexibility for manufacturing construction.
Tindall’s precast concrete solutions for manufacturing construction cover a broad and varied range of requirements. Precast, prestressed framing systems are exceptionally efficient, providing long, clear spans and supporting heavy loads. Precast projects also reach completion faster and more economically than steel or cast-in-place. Partnering with Tindall early in the conceptual phase allows our expert team of in-house engineers to generate the most economical and high-performance solutions.
Superior framing technology optimizes span and load-bearing capabilities.
Precast concrete accommodates heavy loads more economically than steel.
Precast, prestressed concrete framing systems facilitate cleanliness and meet federal government standards for food processing facility design and construction.
Naturally bacteria-, mildew-, and stain-resistant, precast meets USDA Standards for Class “A” surface finishes.
The mass of precast concrete provides an enhanced degree of thermal efficiency. Additionally, the presence of insulated sandwich wall panels results in reduced energy consumption.
Precast, prestressed concrete facilities outlive steel buildings due to their inherent strength, durability, and moisture control — all beneficial to food processing plant construction.
To meet cold storage requirements, precast structures can include insulated precast concrete wall panels with very high insulation
Tindall bulb tees provide clear roof spans of more than 90 feet while supporting suspended loads beneath and heavy equipment loads above.
Elements exposed to public view that need architectural enhancement can include insulated wall panels with custom colored concrete mix, brick, form liner, and exposed aggregate finishes.
Sierra Nevada Brewery
Mills River, NC
Despite record rainfall that would have brought other construction methods to a halt, Tindall completed this construction on schedule, creating eight total precast structures and over 1,000 components with a variety of aesthetics.
The Texas Division was the single source for design, fabrication, and erection of this complex project. The new construction spans across 170,000 square feet and includes double tees supporting hanging conveyor belts and miles of piping.
To accommodate very poor soil conditions, Tindall designed this structure with a light gauge steel roof supported by 120-ft. span prestressed girders connected to precast support columns to form a semi-rigid frame.
General Mills Food Processing
Precast, prestressed concrete framing systems promote cleanliness and help achieve federal government standards placed upon food processing facility design and construction.
For this food processing facility, Tindall developed a complex and creative total precast system to support the very heavy floor loads and meet stringent USDA requirements.
Precast construction offers food preparations and processing facilities many advantages, such as being naturally bacteria-, mildew- and stain-resistant, and complying with USDA & FDA Standards.
Tindall manufactured 79,000 square feet of insulated precast cladding panels that took only three weeks to erect. These panels contributed to the project’s goal of achieving LEED Silver certification while also creating architectural appeal
BMW LC-1 Expansion Egress Pedestrian Tunnel
Tindall designed, manufactured, and delivered a 12' wide x 8' tall pedestrian tunnel in specialized 4-sided sections that allows safe egress from the plant to the parking lot.
