PKA has provided structural engineering for public and private school facilities throughout central Texas.  We have particular expertise in the design and detailing of tilt-up concrete wall systems, including insulated tilt-up wall panels.  PKA has helped pioneer the use of exterior insulated and interior uninsulated tilt-up in the construction of central Texas schools.  Panel finishes have included cast-in thin brick, adhered masonry, brick and masonry veneer, exposed architectural concrete, liners, stains and textured paint.  Since 2005, PKA has designed over 4,500 tilt-up panels for school and related facilities.
