Tilt-Up Awards

6th Annual Tilt-Up Achievement Awards

Each year, the TCA honors those organizations, people and projects that have successfully illustrated the variety, beauty and flexibility of Tilt-Up construction.

For the 1997 Tilt-Up Achievement Awards, a total of ten awards were presented out of over 30 entries received. Winning projects ranged in size from 24,000 to over 390,000 square feet in size. Award winners came from Western Canada to Southern Florida and represented a wide range of projects. Entries were received from as far away as South America.

The criteria for judging included: (1) Quality of construction by the contractor; (2) Aesthetic appeal; (3)  Creativity of structural and architectural design, and; (4) Unique application or end use. A winner of each category was selected so that a project that was unique but not necessarily aesthetically pleasing would have an opportunity to win.

Judging was done by a panel consisting of an architect, engineer, contractor, and material supplier experienced in Tilt-Up construction.

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
