Contratistas Civiles y Mecanicos CCM

Frank Adames and his company, CCM have received high acclaim for their extreme works of tilt-up in a market that has been dominated by cast-in-place frame and block in-fill. In addition, Adames has shown great devotion becoming highly active in the TCA and the promotion of the creativity embodied by tilt-up construction. Through the Tilt-Up Achievement Awards program, Frank Adames has shown many an aggressive Tilt-Up solution for multi-level above- and below-grade structures that uses Tilt-Up as both perimeter bearing wall construction as well as internal structural frames. His consistent involvement in TCA Convention has brought significant content to his peers while bringing home solutions to the challenges faced in the Dominican Republic.

More than any other accomplishment, CCM has been single-handedly responsible for the growth of Tilt-Up as a major construction system throughout the Dominican Republic with more than 100 buildings now on the island, some among the largest in the world. He now sets the standard for not only development of Tilt-Up in this market but also integrating technology through each and every project using BIM to provide complete integration for his projects.

"I am honored to be the recipient of the Murray Parker Memorial award, recognizing the pioneering and innovation in the Tilt-Up industry," said Adames. "We started using the Tilt-Up system 15 years ago with great acceptance from the Dominican market. It was possible with the help of the TCA and its members. Many people opened their doors and spent hours and days reviewing and commenting on our projects. They gave us the confidence that we were on the right path. Thank you for the recognition and support."
