Abstract:
Tilt-up concrete construction is commonly used in low- to mid-rise building construction. This guide reviews the many issues related to the planning and construction of tilt-up buildings to produce a quality tilt-up project. Major topics include preconstruction planning, foundations, special considerations for slab-on ground construction, wall panel forming and casting, panel erection, connections and repairing, and painting. This guide also contains sections on sustainability and insulation systems, as well as references to the relevant codes and standards including updated Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) safety regulations.
