Tilt-Up Concrete

Definition: a construction technique for casting concrete elements in a horizontal position at the job site and then tilting them to their final position in a structure.- ACI Concrete Terminology

Tilt-up concrete wall panels most often serve as load-bearing wall elements spanning vertically from the foundation or slab-on-ground to intermediate floor(s), the roof, or both. Tilt-up panels are generally handled only once. They are lifted or tilted from the casting slab and erected in their final position in one, continuous operation. Tilt-up panels are generally of such large size and weight that they can only be constructed on site and in close proximity to their final location in the structure.
