Building with Tilt-Up

Tilt-Up and Sustainability

Tilt-Up offers a number of benefits toward sustainable, environmentally responsible design.

The concrete industry plays a key role in building modern society—providing shelter and infrastructure to support our quality of life. Today’s built environment relies on concrete as a basic building block. Buildings use concrete for their foundations, walls, columns and floors. Every modern home uses concrete for footings and basement walls and many use concrete for above ground walls and floors.

Tilt-Up and LEED™

Tilt-Up construction offers a number of benefits towards LEED Certification, and there are a number of TCA Member LEED APs.

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.
