Finding and retaining young talent is vital for your company’s future. Many of those new to the industry are looking for meaningful ways to use their skills and experience to make a positive difference in the world. Companies that give their young leaders opportunities to pursue their passion for doing good will be more likely to build leaders that stay engaged and stay committed.
Extollo International is a social impact company that will be the “first-mover” of tilt-up construction technology in Haiti. Extollo is developing a panelized tilt-up house product to significantly disrupt the current housing market in Haiti, led by Sherm Balch (The Peter Coutois Memorial Award recipient and past TCA President). Through its tilt-up operations, Extollo has plans to train hundreds of Haitian construction professionals in tilt-up construction, along with sharing its tilt-up expertise with construction companies in Haiti through an open-source approach.

Our team has been in the architectural precast / pre-stressed business for over 40 years. During that time we have made insulated wall panels using every system. We understand which designs work and more importantly which do NOT work for various reasons including; design code, production efficiency and engineering requirements.

We have always looked at tilt-wall as an evolving artform. There are many things that we considered pushing the envelope a decade or two ago that are now commonplace or outdated. At Seretta, we take our role as an industry leader seriously and are constantly looking for and trying out potentially new and better ways to perform our work. We know that if you become complacent, you will become outdated. At Seretta, we use only the latest and most advanced chemicals, equipment, software, methodologies and technologies so that we continue to produce the highest quality work in the shortest amount of time.
At Innovative Structural Solutions (INNSTRUCT) we have developed the Total Integrated Panel System (TIPS), a technology and process that acts as the primary structural and insulating member in conventional tilt-up construction. TIPS sets 4" of expanded polystyrene between 2 layers of welded wire mesh fabric. These are then joined together by diagonal truss wires. Because of the extreme strength of this pyramidal system, TIPS walls can be built with as little as 5" of total concrete in a 9" insulated tilt-up panel. The system reduces the amount of added rebar by 60-90% and concrete material by 30-50%, depending on the panel design. This drastic reduction in materials, along with the incredible strength of our system, creates a panel that is up to 50% lighter and much easier to work with than traditional tilt-up methods.?
