Tilt-Up Construction

Tilt-Up Concrete Solutions

McCarthy Concrete self performs all aspects of the tilt wall process. From casting slabs to forming panels, tying reinforcing, and placing concrete. Our crews are certified in tilt panel construction finishing and erecting.

When it comes to building large-scale structures efficiently and cost-effectively, tilt-up construction is a compelling solution. At McCarthy Concrete, we’re not just familiar with tilt-up construction; we’re experts in the field.

The Efficiency and Adaptability of Tilt-Up Construction

Tilt-up construction offers a host of benefits that make it a preferred choice for commercial and industrial projects. Unlike traditional methods that involve constructing walls upright, tilt-up construction involves casting concrete wall panels horizontally on the ground, typically adjacent to the building footprint. Once cured, these panels are lifted into position using cranes and tilted upright, hence the name “tilt-up.” 

Tilt-up is widely recognized as an environmentally friendly construction method. Because walls are cast on-site, transportation costs are minimized.

Tilt-Up Concrete Is Taking Over North America

Tilt-up concrete construction is quickly taking over North America, with at least 10,000 structures—enclosing more than 650 million square feet of space—being built every year.

Advantages of Tilt-Up Construction

One key advantage of tilt-up construction is its efficiency. By casting panels on the ground, contractors can work on multiple panels simultaneously, accelerating the construction timeline. This rapid assembly process not only reduces labor costs but also minimizes disruptions to other trades working on the site.

Moreover, tilt-up construction is highly adaptable, making it suitable for a wide range of projects. Whether it’s warehouses, distribution centers, retail complexes, or office buildings, tilt-up construction offers versatility in design and functionality. With advancements in panel forming and lifting techniques, architects and developers have greater flexibility to incorporate a variety of architectural features and achieve desired aesthetics.

Maximizing Savings and Accelerating Project Completion

Another significant benefit of tilt-up construction is its cost-effectiveness. By leveraging local materials and labor, contractors can minimize transportation and logistics expenses compared to other building options, resulting in overall cost savings. Additionally, the speed of construction means that projects can be completed faster, reducing financing costs and allowing owners to generate revenue sooner.
