With the many challenges facing today’s construction industry, including labour, material shortages and rising costs. See why tilt-up construction is a perfect solution. Using mostly local trades and requiring up to 1/3 less labour than traditional construction. A tilt-up panel consists of 3 main components; concrete, rebar and XPS insulation, and although there have been challenges with some materials, these are still readily available. The all-in-one loadbearing tilt-up system greatly reduces dependence on other materials and is an economical solution in today’s inflationary market.
