Recovery from disaster is becoming increasingly more expensive. Surprisingly, it’s not because of stronger and more frequent storms. Communities are beginning to recognize the value of building better, to maintain greater viability of towns and cities following catastrophic events.

This presentation will outline the causes of more costly natural disasters in the US and the resilient construction solutions tilt-up concrete can offer to better protect people and property. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the causes of the costly natural disasters in the US
  • Understand the value of building better to maintain greater viability of towns and cities following disasters.
  • Identify the resilient construction solutions that tilt-up concrete can offer.
  • Understand how tilt-up can better protect people and property

About the TCA

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction, a method in which concrete wall panels are cast on-site and tilted into place. Tilt-Up construction is one of the fastest growing industries in the United States, combining the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment. At least 10,000 buildings, enclosing more than 650 million square feet, are constructed each year using this construction method.
