TCA Announces “Collective Position on Temporary Construction Site Shutdown Procedures”

Español | Translation Sponsored by TCA

Shutting down any construction site at any point in the construction process requires the construction team to assess and address potential risks associated with an unoccupied jobsite. Shutting down a tilt-up jobsite, particularly during, or immediately following, the erection of wall panels presents a unique set of challanges that must be addressed related to their temporary bracing.

The design of temporary bracing for tilt-up panels differs significantly from the engineering of the panels themselves. Where panel engineering considers the in-place, finished building envelope, brace engineering and the impact on the panels are a part of means and methods which predict a period exposure of the panels at risk. TCA’s “Collective Position on Temporary Construction Site Shutdown Procedures” provides the reader with some strategies to consider when developing a company policy, action plan, or best practice for the temporary shutdown of construction activities, or when the schedule becomes interrupted or elongated outside of the original scope beyond the control of the construction team. Complimentary copies of TCA’s “Collective Position on Temporary Construction Site Shutdown Procedures” are available for downloaded at for current members.

Members, contact the TCA at (319) 895-6911 or email Janette Barr at with any login issues. If your company is not a current member, visit for more details.
