CREATING EFFICIENCIES IN CONSTRUCTION
With a name like "tilt-up," you know it has to be, at the very least, interesting. Tilt-up concrete construction (also known as tilt wall construction) uses prefabricated concrete panels that are then lifted into place and placed on a concrete foundation. Once done, the exterior walls of your building are virtually complete.

WHERE YOU WILL SEE TILT-UP BUILDINGS
Tilt Wall Buildings
BENEFITS OF TILT-UP CONSTRUCTION
Speed. The traditionally constructed building takes months to erect, not to mention a lot of manpower. Concrete buildings are built with CMU blocks, blocks with brick, or structural steel columns that are then covered with brick or stucco. When you invest in tilt-up construction, it takes four days to pour the foundation and let it cure, and then two to three days to enclose the building with the tilted-up concrete walls. Now that's fast!
Safety. With tilt wall buildings, cranes do most of the heavy lifting with workers on the ground there to ensure the concrete panels are put in the correct places and then secured once placed. Thus, there is little to no use of scaffolding, which puts workers at higher risk of injury when they are off the ground.
Cost savings. As you can imagine, anytime you shrink the amount of time it takes to do anything, you will be saving money. With tilt wall buildings, you save money in transporting materials to and from the job site, save in labor costs when it takes you less days to complete a construction project, and save in materials since the concrete panels are made in a controlled environment with less waste.
Protection. Because you can enclose a building so quickly with tilt wall construction, you will have a protected area readily available. Here, you can ensure your tools, supplies, and workers are sheltered from the elements. This not only protects these objects and increases their shelf life, but it also helps with morale and productivity when you aren't fighting the sun, wind, and rain while working.

BENEFITS OF TILT WALL BUILDINGS AFTER PLACEMENT
Durability. Tilt wall buildings are some of the longest-lasting. This is partly due to the fact that concrete lasts for centuries. However, the fact that the walls are prefabricated in a controlled environment allows for a level of precision that is just not possible out in the field. This contributes to its longevity as well.
Little maintenance. If presented with a choice of two items, one that you have to maintain and one you do not, most of us would choose the latter. Tilt wall buildings require very little maintenance and repairs. You don't have to worry about critters or insects here.
Extremely energy-efficient. Concrete itself is an excellent insulation material, keeping your building warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also is excellent for quelling sounds. Call our erector company in Houston to learn more today!
