Best Use Overall

Southwest Airlines Wings

The Leadership Education and Aircrew Development (or LEAD) Center was designed and built to protect its expensive equipment against natural or man-made disasters. Precast/prestressed walls were selected to provide a hardened exterior designed to withstand the forces of an F4 tornado.

The structurally durable precast panels provide the LEAD center storm protection to the center while offering a pleasing aesthetic through the versatile use of architectural concrete surfaces with varying finishes and patterns.
