Tilt Up Your Building To Bring Down Your Costs
Tilt-up construction combines the long-lasting durability of reinforced concrete with the expertise and skill of Calahan Construction Services. Learn tilt-up construction details, benefits, and practical applications to see the effect it can have on your next building.
Calahan Construction is a construction contractor that utilizes this construction technique across a wide range of markets and for various structures. The tilt-up method doesn’t have a specific application that it best suits. Still, business owners are often attracted to tilt-up solutions for large industrial buildings and distribution centers.
There are several significant advantages to tilting. Two of the most important benefits are the time and cost savings tilt-up panels bring. Unlike more labor-intensive methods, concrete wall panels only take a few days to form and lift into place.
Tilting walls takes a smaller workforce and fewer labor hours, producing project cost savings. Because it’s so readily available, concrete construction is typically more cost effective than steel frames and specialized materials.
Other benefits Calahan Construction delivers for commercial buildings and warehousing centers with tilt-up construction include:
- Energy efficiency
- Fire resistance
- Design customization
- Environmentally friendly

You may be wondering what concrete tilt-up construction is. It is a process of forming reinforced concrete panels at a job site. We do that by pouring concrete into assembled panels and letting it cure. After the concrete has stabilized, the panels are tilted into a vertical position. The Calahan Construction team then uses a crane to lift the panels and place them in footings on the slab foundation.
