A tilt-up building's walls are created horizontally in large slabs of concrete called panels. The panels are then lifted, or tilted up, into position around the building's slab.
For buildings like Pioneer 360, tilt-up construction is the most cost-effective and schedule-friendly approach we could use. Traditional construction of a million SF of warehousing space would http://superrr.hostzi.com have been more expensive and more time consuming, with no offsetting benefit to justify its use. Tilt-up provided additional specific value on this project as it easily allowed us to use locally developed raw materials, a major factor that is evaluated for LEED certification.
