Building with Tilt-Up

Tilt-Up Construction Benefits

You may be surprised at all of the advantages Tilt-Up construction has to offer.

Tilt-Up concrete construction is not new; it has been in use for well over a century. Since the mid-1940s it has developed into the preferred method of construction for many types of buildings and structures. Nationwide, over 15% of all industrial buildings are Tilt-Up, ranging in size from 5,000 to over 1.5 million square feet. They are typified by their attractiveness, efficiency and longevity.

When you construct a new building, regardless of its purpose, you want a building that works, is attractive, reasonably priced, and efficient - a building in which you can take pride! You can have all of these benefits with Tilt-Up concrete construction.

Read below to learn more about all of the benefits of Tilt-Up.

  • Fast-track delivery - Planning begins with an evaluation of the site.
  • Cost containment - Engineering is a critical phase of each and every Tilt-Up project.
  • Innovation - Once planning is complete, construction can begin on the floor and footings
  • Lower operating costs - There are a number of ways to form individual panels.
  • Architectural aesthetics - Patterns or texture can easily be added to the face of Tilt-Up panels.
  • Durability - The use of plastic support chairs instead of steel chairs is recommended to avoid rusting.
  • Safety - Concrete placement methods for Tilt-Up panels are the same as those for floor slabs.

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.
