Top 5 Reasons Developers can benefit from choosing Tilt-Up over conventional building construction.
#1. SPEED of Tilt-Up
Traditional construction takes longer to build. It is a multi-stepped process.
Concrete blocks go up one at a time, and structural steel columns need to be covered with sheathing, and then faced with stucco and painted or other covered with brick or stone. Whereas, a Tilt-Up wall is created quickly by carefully tilting up the panels into position with the slab. And then, magically, you see a fully standing structure.
Erecting faster exterior walls makes it possible for other trades to begin work sooner, allowing for concurrent scheduling of project phases.
#3. ROI & IRR
Since Tilt-Up panels are created onsite and use local labor and materials, which saves shipping costs and delays. The larger the job, the more savings and (ROI) return on investment.
Concrete is an excellent insulator and helps reduce the cost of heating and cooling.
Fire resistance, easy maintenance, and severe weather durability, often help reduce commercial insurance rates.
The quicker a building is completed, the faster it will be occupied, and will begin earning its investment and (IRR) internal rate of return in a joint-venture partnership.
Woodland has a proven track record for following and exceeding OSHA safety standards. With a lot of the work done on ground level, Tilt-Up avoids many of the hazards workers face with scaffolds.
#5. ARCHITECTURAL FEATURES
Tilt-Up is no longer a no frills choice! A full array of customization is available to meet the client’s needs, taste and budget. There are many aesthetic surface textures and finishes available. Some of the decorative treatments include adding coloring or textured paint to the concrete mix. Patterns can be formed with form-liners cast to create stone, brick, wood grain and striated finishes. Woodland has even built curved walls with the Tilt-Up process.
