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

Although submittals were judged on aesthetic expression, schedule, size, originality, finishes and special conditions, this year's judges placed an increased emphasis on the characteristics of the projects that would attract and hold the interest of architects and building owners.

The judges routinely commented on the continued growth of creativity in applying the principles of forming and lifting site cast Tilt-Up elements with limited or no constraint on the size, shape or complexity of the geometry.

Although 37 structures were selected as worthy award receiptients, the panel of judges rated eight projects from across all categories to receive the exclusive title, Excellence in Achievement. These projects, detailed below, stand out for their unique and inventive use of the Tilt-Up method. Seen below, these projects are noted with this symbol: Excellence Award logo

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.
