Tilt-Up Construction For Condominiums and Apartment Buildings
Efficient multi-family residential construction in Ontario is now possible through Tilt Wall
Ontario’s need for housing is growing faster than ever before, with developers urgently seeking innovative ways to combat the growing crisis. Apartments and condos built using tilt-up construction have the potential to create valuable units that can be built at a lower cost, provide a more durable structure, can be built faster and is more energy-efficient than steel or other concrete methods
Now is the time for Ontario’s developers, architects and engineers to embrace this rapid-construction methodology and seriously consider the advantages of tilt-up.
“The work was completed on schedule by a very professional crew. They come prepared to work and are safety conscious which is a part of the GRC culture.”

Advantages of Tilt-Up Construction for Condominiums & Apartment Buildings
By casting large wall panels on-site and lifting them into place, Tilt Wall’s residential complexes can greatly reduce construction costs related to manpower, transportation and materials.
Manpower costs are reduced by taking advantage of the skills of general labourers, transportation costs are reduced by delivering the concrete directly to the site and material costs are reduced by using local suppliers whenever possible.
Rising as high as 10 storeys, multi-unit housing by Tilt Wall is mostly made of solid concrete, with its external sandwich walls also incorporating a layer of insulation. Concrete’s thermal mass properties allow heat to be retained on cold, wintry days, and cooler air to be absorbed in summer.
Concrete also has long-term benefits: it lowers maintenance costs, reduces rodent infestations and improves building fire resistance.
Concrete panels only take a few days to cure, and tilting an entire residential structure into place can be accomplished in as little as a few days. The speed from going to ‘shovel in the ground’ to ‘return on investment’ has never been greater.
Help your tenants reduce their energy consumption costs, and simultaneously reduce your global footprint by choosing insulated concrete panels only possible through tilt-up construction.
Tilt-up’s ability to reduce consumption can help developers achieve LEED certification for their buildings.
