What are Tilt-up concrete constructions and how it beneficial?

Friday, August 20, 2010

Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing construction technologies in the concrete construction. Tilt-Up concrete construction is not new; it has been in use for well over a century.  A tilt-up construction project begins with job site preparation and pouring the slab. During this phase of the project, workers install footings around the slab in preparation for the panels. The crew then assembles the panel forms on the slab. Normally, the form is created with wooden pieces that are joined together. The forms act like a mold for the cement panels. They provide the panels' exact shape and size, doorways and window openings, and ensure the panels meet the design specifications and fit together properly. Next, workers tie in the steel grid of reinforcing bars into the form. They install inserts and embeds for lifting the panels and attaching them to the footing, the roof system, and to each other.

When you construct a new building, regardless of its purpose, you want a building that works, is attractive, reasonably priced, and efficient a building in which you can take pride! You can have all of these benefits with Tilt-Up concrete construction.

Tilt-up Constructions benefits as below:

•    Fast-track delivery - Planning begins with an evaluation of the site.
•    Cost containment - Engineering is a critical phase of each and every Tilt-Up project.
•    Innovation - Once planning is complete, construction can begin on the floor and footings
•    Lower operating costs - There are a number of ways to form individual panels.
•    Architectural aesthetics - Patterns or texture can easily be added to the face of Tilt-Up panels.
•    Durability - The use of plastic support chairs instead of steel chairs is recommended to avoid rusting.
•    Safety - Concrete placement methods for Tilt-Up panels are the same as those for floPor slabs.
