buildings offer durability and energy efficiency not found in other
construction methods. Larger wall panels results in less construction
time and lower labor costs giving you more building for your buck.
Tilt-up is a tried and true method of construction dating back over a century.
Concrete is an
ideal building medium because of its fluid properties allowing it to
be cast into any shape. This means that each and every building is
custom and as unique as your imagination. Because concrete is the
main component in this type of construction it is considered a
“Green” eco-friendly process and structure. The building walls
are constructed of concrete panels with ThermoMass sandwich
insulation, if desired. A number of roofing options are available
including wood truss, pre-engineered steel, steel deck, and precast
plank. All buildings are cast on site reducing construction time and
Operating Cost Savings
- 99.7% thermal efficiency rating when insulated
- Up to 75% reduced energy costs
- 100+ year durability rating
- Reduced insurance costs by up to 35%
- 4-hour ASTM E-119 fire resistance rated insulation
Exterior finishes are limitless and can be done for a fraction of the price of other building methods. Reveals in any size or shape (ie. logos, addresses, bands, etc.) can be cast into the surface of the wall panel for an embossed effect. Clay brick and masonry block are available to match existing buildings in the area or additions to the existing structure for up to 50% less than the cost of traditional brick or block laying. Mix and match construction methods for attractive and unique aesthetic appeal. Concrete finishes are durable and low maintenance making this type of construction perfect for the harsh northern climate and those who have better things to do.
