Broadview Public School

TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Educational Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

Broadview Public School was a complex job with an aggressive construction timeline. Most of the tilt-up panels were built during the winter months. This school was designed using concrete to show case the creative style of the architect firm. From beautiful and bold imprints to traditional brick this school demonstrates the wide variety of finishes that tilt-up can achieve with ease. Using insulated tilt-up sandwich panels allowed for an energy efficient school at costs that rival traditional construction methods.

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.
