The 2018 Tilt-Up Convention and Expo will once again bring together many of the tilt-up industry’s most creative and experienced contractors, architects, engineers and suppliers. Over three days, nearly five hundred of these professionals will share how demand for big ideas is opening the door for tilt-up methodology, engaging an ever-increasing number of building types in an ever-widening global market.
Evidence of this evolution can be seen in TCA’s “Tilt-Up Top Ten,” where in the last cycle some of the most impressive records in recent years have transpired. This involves four new #1 projects, including records for Tallest Panel, Largest Floor Area, Largest Footprint, and Most Recycled Content, along with additions for Heaviest, Widest, and Tallest Cantilever panels. Accompanying this activity is a new crop of the very best projects globally vying for the Achievement Awards and setting pace for the industry. This much activity clearly indicates the challenge for project teams to be connected and engaged, remaining in tune and capable to respond to these modern program statements. The market for big ideas is in high demand.
Tilt-up construction methodology continues to be among the most flexible, most economical and most efficient delivery system for the biggest challenges and biggest concepts presented to building design and construction professionals.
You’ll leave Dallas with the inspiration, knowledge, and connections you need to realize your own big ideas.
The TCA would like to recognize and thank the team of local professionals working to make this event a success.
Each year the TCA Annual Convention is held in a different location. The educational content is updated to reflect current industry issues, advancements in technology, changes in market conditions, building codes, and the ever-changing needs of the TCA membership. The mission of this committee is to ensure the event is relevant to THIS market and THIS region. Additionally, this committee is charged with discovering, documenting and connecting the existing network of the region.
