Tilt-up, tilt-slab or tilt-wall is a construction technique whereby concrete elements (wall panels, columns, beams and slabs) are formed on a concrete surface typically the building's floor, or a temporary casting bed near the building's footprint. Once the concrete has cured sufficiently, the elements are tilted from horizontal to vertical using a crane. Elements are then temporarily braced into position whilst the remaining structural components, e.g. roof slabs, intermediate floors and walls are secured in place. Precast Concrete construction differs from Tilt-up in that all elements are produced off site at a manufacturing facility under controlled conditions. Building elements are then transported to site for installation.
We offer design and build precast alternatives to conventional on site construction methods, using both Tilt-up and Precast techniques. We have our own dedicated manufacturing facility and experienced team with a background in production and rapid assembly of precast structures.
Through a combination of the below elements we are able to deliver entire precast structures in accordance with your requirements:
We use a proprietary system incorporting Thermomass to produce insulated concrete sandwich panels. These are a single precast element which is comprised of a structural component, insulation layer, and a cladding wythe. Through incorporating the insulation process into the structure itself, we are able to offer substantial time savings over post build insulation systems or coatings. With a powerfloated surface to the interior, panels are ready to receive direct paint application, offering a low maintenance, durable finish. Through our unique approach we are able to offer our clients a fully insulated building envelope to meet various R-ratings.
