Youngquist Residence

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Housing Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

The beauty and design versatility achieved with the Tilt-Up method is evidenced by the Youngquist Residence. The 25,000-square-foot single-family home, designed to emulate traditional concrete block, has many of the same aesthetical features found on luxury homes in this area of Florida including precast concrete moldings, a 38-foot tall half round stairwell, columns, rounded windows and doors as well as an eight-car garage.

Design and practicality were top of mind when using Tilt-Up construction due to the area being a common target for major storms, lighting, hurricanes and tornadoes. And while the home far exceeds the state’s strict residential building codes by achieving a hurricane force wind rating of 200-mph, it also offers superior fire resistance and containment. The speed of construction, 180 days, was exceptional for a house of this size, a benefit to homebuilders that is as impressive as the finished product.

The Youngquist Residence advances the Tilt-Up construction industry by providing safety and security while showcasing the method’s unique design flexibility, superior strength and beauty with aesthetic capabilities.

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.
