Title: Development of Tilt-Up Construction
Author(s): C. A. Clark
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 813-820
Abstract:The idea of casting large wall sections horizontally on the floor and tilting them to a vertical position has been used for many years but only in the last several years has it received wide recognition. The tilt-up method offers architectural flexibility and variations in exterior surface treatment, panel lengths and heights, and window and door openings. It is equally adaptable to standardized or individually designed buildings. Insulation and vapor seals can be attached to the inside of the wall (under side) before placing the concrete. Electrical and other conduits and outlet boxes are installed before concrete is placed. The tilt-up method makes extensive use of power equipment and lends itself to many assembly-line economies.
