Tilt-up construction is a technique that facilitates construction, making working with concrete a quick and convenient job. It involves the casting of concrete elements such as walls, pillars, and supports, horizontally on top of concrete slabs. This includes the building’s floors, and other temporary concrete castings, to be set on a flat surface.
This feature makes tilt-up construction the perfect choice for construction projects.
Once the cast has cured, the elements are cut to size, concrete and rebar alike, and then ‘tilted’ to the vertical position with the help of a crane. Once it stands up, the bases are braced and secured in place with concrete. The braces stay in place until the rest of the structural components, including roofs, intermediate floors, and sidewalls, are set and secured.
Tilt-up construction boasts numerous advantages over traditional construction methods. It is the go-to option, for many a construction company erecting warehouses, retail stores, office buildings, storage facilities, and many other building projects. As mentioned above, this procedure works well even when constructing in crowded areas.
Tilt-up concrete buildings are flexible, such that you can place the walls wherever you feel like they would fit better. The walls aren’t prefabricated, allowing each floor to be custom-designed according to your needs and preferences. You can add designs can on the top, and at the foot of the walls, after they have been erected to increase their aesthetic appeal.
Tilt-up concrete buildings are extremely durable. The concrete walls themselves are much stronger than wood or cement blocks.
