AAS (Formerly ACS) Project: TCU Worth Hills

This is a new series of buildings on a university campus which will be used for housing, dining and meeting spaces. The entire exterior of the building is created using cast stone except for the brick work.

The pink color shades in the cast stone are to match with rest of the campus buildings that have exterior with similar colors.

The breezeway and the joined each other on the first level. The plans we were given did not provide sufficient detail to complete our shop drawings. Our draftsman and an engineer had to design structural support for the weight of stone in this area. And then design cast stone piece sizes that met industry standards and aesthetic appeal.
