Why Choose Tilt-Up Construction for Commercial & Industrial Buildings?
Site-cast concrete construction is now known as the faster way to build quality buildings here in Ontario. Tilt Wall is the tilt-up industry leader, proving time and time again to retail, office and manufacturing leaders that forming all-in-one concrete panels on-site and tilting them into place results in significant time savings. Reducing the length of a construction schedule is key for everyone in the building process, including architects, developers, general contractors and tenants.
The biggest costs of a commercial or industrial building are often the operational costs, including the energy required to heat and cool the structure once fully operational. The insulated sandwich concrete panels of a tilt-up wall help to absorb, store and release energy, reducing the amount of money that developers spend over the course of the building’s life.
By casting each panel on-site, the size is not limited to a transport truck trailer – tilt-up panels are typically 20-30 feet wide and can weigh over 200,000 lbs. This greatly reduces thermal bridging and ensures continuous insulation throughout walls.
Concrete is a very strong, long-lasting building material that can withstand most of what its occupants or climate can throw at it. Exterior tilt-up walls often have two layers of concrete, with insulation between the two, resulting in an ultra-durable solution that resists storms, accidents, vermin, insects, mould, chemicals, corrosion, abrasion and much more. By choosing a structure that is more durable than alternatives, it will retain its value longer and last for generations to come.
The speed of business should not slow down in an Ontario winter, which is why tilt-up construction doesn’t pause over the cooler months either. Tilt Wall has faced many situations where projects needed concrete curing to take place in -30 C temperatures and tackled this challenge head-on by using large, insulated tarps, ground heaters and concrete admixtures.
