2016 TCA Convention

Tilt-Up 101 - An Introduction to the Art, Practice and Challenge of Tilt-Up Construction

Date and time: Tuesday, October 11 - 9:00a to 12:00p

Tilt-Up 101 is an intentional introduction to the industry described as site cast tilt-up construction.  In order to get the most out of the multi-day experience at TCA Convention, Tilt-Up 101 quickly connects persons new to the industry or new to the construction method to the basic design, management and construction principles that make this method successful.

This course is separated into three components to offer the attendee distinct elements to add to their Convention experience: 

Part I - Intro to Tilt-Up presents the overview of tilt-up as a complete building system.  This will demonstrate the many trends and solutions that establish the vernacular for an entire industry.

Part II - Building A Team sets the understanding of the roles that are available and required in order to be successful in the industry.  Tilt-up is many respects a conversation as well as a practice and this presentation will define the key roles for the contractor and the variety of team interactions that deliver the entire project.

Part III - Start to Finish - Tilt-Up Construction is a timeline perspective of the construction process.  This segment offers many of the fundamentals that are part of certification process for supervisors as well as identifying the detailed elements of the site to completed work that is a tilt-up building. 

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.
