One of the most talked about subjects in today’s industry is the status of our economy. Many in the Tilt-Up industry have been working diligently to make the most of this downturn by finding new and innovative ways to offer additional services in more places. One such contractor is Lindsay Lampasona, LLC of Norfolk, Mass. and West Harford, Conn.

With proven expertise in foundation and flatwork, Lindsay Lampasona has been an industry leader in Tilt-Up construction for more than 35 years. Created by the merger of two east coast companies in 2008, Lindsay Construction, Inc. and Lampasona Concrete Corporation, LLC joined forces to offer complete formwork, flatwork and Tilt-Up services Lindsay Lampasona employs approximately 150 people and primarily services the New England market, but will travel to other locations for the right project.

“We have extensive design/build expertise in all division 3 concrete, which includes foundations, flatwork, decorative concrete, Tilt-Up and more, but we also specialize in two areas that separate us from our competition – high-tolerance slab-on-grades and Tilt-Up concrete,” said Devin Hartnell, Chief Executive Officer of Lindsay Lampasona. “We will do as much as the full structural design and construction for the foundations, slabs, Tilt-Up, and structural steel to give our clients a full building shell. Our ability to provide front end design expertise adds a lot of value to the building process.”

Known as a full-service concrete contractor, they specialize in laser screed floors, F number specified flat and super flat concrete floors, and they offer a complete pumping division. Lindsay Lampasona has been active in the site-cast Tilt-Up industry for the past 35 years in the Canadian market, and in the last three years in the U.S. “Due to the economy, we have focused on our internal efforts and have found ways to do more with less resources. Our hard work will help us come out of the recession lean and ready to continue our growth strategy,” said Hartnell. “We want to continue to grow our Tilt-Up business in the northeast and make it the predominant building system here.”

With their industry experience, Lindsay Lampasona has worked on many Tilt-Up projects. One of significance is the recently completed distribution center in Shirley, N.Y. Owned by Clare Rose, Inc., one of the largest beer distributors in the U.S., this roughly 300,000-square-foot building on Long Island consisted of insulated and non-insulated panels. A unique feature on this project was the recycling center,  which consisted of five bays of cast slabs horizontally placed on top of 17-foot-tall panels and then 26-foot panels on top of that. Another unique feature for this project was that the panels were of the heaviest and tallest Lindsay Lampasona has ever worked with. With the heaviest panel weighing 187,000 pounds and the tallest panel being 52 feet, Tilt-Up was what made this project such a success.

“The project’s tight schedule was met easily with the speed of Tilt-Up,” recalls Mike Marko PE, Project Engineer, at Lindsay Lampasona. “We were standing cast panels as steel was being erected, and we all had to work together to get the job done. The owner was pleased with the outcome and we keep getting calls from the General Contractor on the Clare Rose project for additional Tilt-Up projects.”

According to Hartnell, Tilt-Up is continuing to expand its use and application in the industry. “With all the engineering in-roads and the technology now available for Tilt-Up, it has grown significantly over the years. It will always be an exceptional warehouse or distribution center method, but for the past decade we have been doing car dealerships, retail centers, office buildings, institutional buildings, multi-story buildings, and many other types of buildings as well. This isn’t new to us as members of the TCA, but there is still that perception and Tilt-Up is breaking down the barriers to be one of the most flexible systems on the market.”

A founding member of the TCA, Lindsay Lampasona considers their TCA membership to be a great tool for their business. “TCA has been great for us in many ways. The website and photo library of award winners and projects has been an invaluable sales tool for us, and the network of members has provided a resource for sharing ideas and industry trends. Our membership has given us a leg up on the competition, thanks to the vast network of industry leaders,” said Hartnell.
