Calamar, a full service real estate organization that specializes in site-cast concrete tilt-up construction, was recently recognized with an industry award for the submission of their new corporate headquarters building at 3949 Forest Parkway in Wheatfield. 105 projects were submitted from across the country for consideration and of that number, only forty were selected. This prestigious award was presented in the office category by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) at the 2008 TCA Tilt-Up Achievement Awards annual meeting and awards breakfast in Las Vegas during the World of Concrete convention. TCA is a non-profit international organization founded in 1986 that serves to expand and improve the use of site cast Tilt-Up as the preferred construction method. This is the 17th consecutive year the Achievement Awards have been held.

3949 Forest Parkway is located in The Woodlands Corporate Center East in Wheatfield, a 120-acre mixed use development being developed by Calamar. The park is comprised of flex/multi-tenant facilities, industrial, office and retail space as well as a residential component comprised of senior housing apartments and patio homes. The building is nearly 31,000 S.F. of office and was constructed utilizing the proprietary CON/STEEL concrete tilt-up system which Calamar has an exclusive licensing agreement with.

The competition is exceptionally challenging and we are pleased to accept this award, and are proud of all the team members that were involved with and associated with this project.“
