Tilt up construction involves the use of site cast concrete walls which are 'tilted' up into place. Panelized wood roof systems, hybrid truss roof systems, or steel deck systems are typical. These wall and roof combinations result in a very cost efficient building built in a very short period of time. In addition, these buildings can be extremely visually attractive and engineered earthquake resistant.
Panelized roof systems provide a fast and efficient installation procedure that averages 15,000 square feet a day. Some roof subcontractors have been known to install upward to 40,000 square feet in a single day on our large projects. Hybrid roof systems combine steel bar-joist trusses with a 2x4 and plywood deck.
