TCA Tilt-Up Project Profile - Educational Division

Article tools: Coming soon!

SiteCast Construction found Tilt-Up to be the most viable solution for a 49,300 square foot two-story elementary school in the Ontario marketplace. They broke ground on March 1 and the facility was complete in time for the 1999 school year in August - only 116 working days!

The facility features 132 fully bricked and insulated panels. SiteCast used the Scott Brick System to achieve the brick look, as well as colored architectural concrete. Tilt-Up also was utilized for interior walls for the gym, corridors and stairwells. The tallest panel is 26 feet, 5 inches tall and the heaviest panel weighs more than 60,000 lbs.

The THERMOMASS Insulated Panel System by Composite Technologies Corporation was used for increased thermal efficiency.

Meadow-Burke products were also utilized.

"Tilt-Up construction allowed our local school board the ability to provide a new school within six months compared to using traditional construction methods which typically require eight to 10 months," said Shawn Hickey, SiteCast Vice President.

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.
