Cost data for tilt-up construction are broken down into six componets - casting platform, forming, pouring and curing panels, erection and construction of columns - and compared with a general over-all cost for reinforced brick masonry construction. As with all cost comparisions necessary allowances must be made for local conditions and prices and for changes in the general economic structure. A short form is presented as an aid in estimating costs.
