Is your distribution center builder well-versed in Tilt-Up construction?

They certainly should be. After all, Tilt-Up construction happens to be one of the quickest and most effective ways to build a warehouse, distribution center or manufacturing facility.

What is Tilt-Up construction?

In short, Tilt-Up construction is a building process in which large concrete panels are poured in the flat position and then are “tilted up” to form the walls of the building. As noted on the Tilt-Up Concrete Association’s website, Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest-growing industries in the US. At least 650 million square feet are constructed via this means of construction each year.

Why Tilt-Up construction?

There are many reasons and benefits why Tilt-Up is a preferred delivery method, including speed, cost logistics and, of course, stronger walls. And because of these reasons, this should be a method your builder gives plenty of consideration.

Today, in fact, when it comes to manufacturing and distribution facilities, there is a much greater percentage of Tilt-Up buildings than any other type. When approaching your next manufacturing facility, distribution center build or warehouse construction project, it’s pertinent that you make it a priority to make sure your builder is well-versed in Tilt-Up construction.
