Building with Tilt-Up | Benefits

Tilt-Up Benefits: Fast Track Delivery

The Tilt-Up process is a quick and efficient construction method.

Design/Build and Tilt-Up go hand-in-hand.

For short project time-lines, consider Design/Build - the fast delivery system for project where building construction proceeds while the design is developed, speeding completion. Tilt-Up lends itself to this process because wall panel construction can proceed while the rest of the building is designed.

You'll get earlier occupancy.

When you decide to build, you want to proceed quickly. With Tilt-Up, you get compression of disciplines - many phases are completed simultaneously. Therefore, you can move into your building sooner.

Assembly line prefabrication means greater efficiency.

Load-bearing reinforced concrete wall panels are cast horizontally on the floor slab or a casting slab, and are tilted up into their final vertical position with high-capacity mobile cranes. The entire process is designed for efficiency and speed of erection.

Trades get in sooner.

Because the floor slab is poured first, the other trades can work sooner and in a better work environment, which saves time and money.

Materials and labor are more readily available.

Site-cast Tilt-Up uses ready mixed concrete usually available near the job site. Contractors use local labor.

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.
