The Concrete Advantage in Constructing Low- and Mid-Rise Structures
Tilt-up is the advanced construction method for low to mid-rise structures. Load-bearing concrete wall panels are cast horizontally on site and then tilted up into position.
Tilt-up offers your project the following:
- Fast Track Delivery
Tilt-up construction lends itself to fast-paced design-build projects. Earlier occupancy results from assembly line-style prefabrication, faster site access for the trades, and the universal availability of ready mixed concrete.
- Cost Containment
In-place material costs with tilt-up are more competitive than precast, masonry or steel structures. Lower labor requirements and speed of erection mean lower costs. Expensive vertical forming and scaffolding are not required.
- On-the-Job Safety
Most tilt-up construction work is done on the ground. Since the floor slab is poured first, workers have a safer working surface.
- Architectural Aesthetics
Owners and architects take pride in tilt-up structures with their unlimited choices of colors, textures and architectural accents.
Ready-mixed concrete provides proven durability and fire resistance. Tilt-up buildings erected in the 1940’s show little sign of wear. Tilt-up walls even survive earthquakes.
Concrete gives you more value for your money in every category!
