Tilt-Up Benefits: Safety

Tilt-Up has long been recognized as a safe construction method.

Most work is on the ground

There is no vertical form-work and no scaffolding since walls are constructed horizontally. In addition, since the floor slab is poured first, workers have a safe, stable working surface.

Labor crews are smaller

Without vertical forming, or other costly erection processes, few workers are needed, especially during the lifting operation. The short project cycle presents less opportunity for accidents.

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.
