New Building Construction - Why Tilt-Up Is The Right Choice!

When a business owner sets out to build a new facility, he or she is typically focused on big picture concerns such as budget and financing, schedule and occupancy date, operational and maintenance costs, and quality and image of the completed building. More likely than not, the owner is not considering the method of construction.

Since the 1970s, numerous building owners, both private and public, have taken advantage of tilt-up construction to lower construction costs and accelerate occupancy schedules while receiving an investment grade building. This OnDemand Webinar will explore the features and benefits of modern tilt-up construction and educate building owners and their representatives - designers and contractors - why tilt-up construction is the preferred choice for many facilities. You will learn about the differences between tilt-up construction and conventional construction methods such as steel framed, masonry and precast. Some building owners who want the benefits of tilt-up might be concerned that their facility will not work with tilt-up. This program will dispel some of the most common misconceptions about tilt-up construction with real-world examples. Once an owner selects tilt-up construction, there are some critical decisions that must be considered in the earliest stages of the project. You will learn about necessary decisions such as contractor qualifications, and also about the latest innovations in tilt-up construction as they apply to energy efficiency, LEED®, and security. Finally, you will see several case studies of completed tilt-up projects that have saved business owners time and money while still producing award-winning designs.

Learning Objectives:

  • You will be able to describe what tilt-up construction is.
  • You will be able to discuss dispelling common misconceptions of tilt-up construction.
  • You will be able to explain benefits compared to conventional construction methods.
  • You will be able to review tilt-up innovations.
