Faster Installation - Shorter Construction Times
Concrete tilt wall construction offers several opportunities to “compress” the construction schedule and deliver the completed building faster than building with traditional construction techniques. First, the precast concrete wall panels are manufactured off site, which is particularly advantageous to those projects that have limited space to store construction materials on site. Second, once delivered to the job site, erecting the walls with tilt wall panels is much faster than building walls with traditional construction methods such as masonry block or steel. Depending on the size of the structure, many tilt wall buildings can be erected in a matter of DAYS instead of weeks.
Because the walls are erected so quickly, the remaining trades can begin their work earlier in the process on a tilt wall project, which allows greater overlapping of project phases. In addition, because the building is made of ready-mix concrete from local sources, the project is less likely to be affected by transportation delays as well.
All of these factors provide for a faster, more predictable schedule with fewer opportunities for delays associated with cost overruns.
