CAMARILLO, CA-A $20 million pair of industrial buildings is giving a new image to concrete tilt-up construction, the square, boxy look typical of that building style. Built for Triliad Development, Inc., of Thousand Oaks by Oltmans Construction Co., the buildings, set on 11 acres at the north side of the Ventura Freeway in Mission Oaks Business Park, feature towers, arched windows and mansard roofs evoking a Mediterranean style rarely seen in an industrial facility.

“It looks more like a framed office structure than tilt-up construction,” Latane Dunman, project superintendent with the Thousand Oaks-based builder tells of the $7 million property, which completed construction this month.

Architect David Muran, with Poliquin, Kellogg Design Group, of Woodland Hills, tells that the look of the building was critical to winning zoning approval from Camarillo city officials. “The entire business park is critical to the impression the city wants to give,” he says of the site, a gateway to Camrillo. “So they’ve been very critical on the style of architecture.”

But since the developer wanted tilt-up construction, merging the Mediterranean architectural style with the standard squareness of tilt-up proved to be a challenge, Muran says. So, instead of creating typical tilt-up panels for the buildings’ façade, Muran designed feature panels that were larger and heavier but had design characteristics that were previously never used in tilt-up construction.

“It gave us a whole different architectural pallet to work with,” he says of the new technique. The 205,117 sf project, which is divided into a 110,167 sf building on six acres at 312 Balboa Circle and a 94,950 sf structure set on five acres at 5187 Camino Ruiz, both designed for research and development and industrial uses, are currently awaiting their first tenants.
