Exploring the Architecture of Tilt-Up at CRSI

Next week, I will join developers, owners, architects and contractors to discuss the benefits of concrete for low-rise buildings. The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) is hosting the 2012 Great Lakes Fall Regional Meeting September 5-7 in Plymouth, Michigan.

At this seminar, I will present the versatile and unique possibilities that can be achieved with tilt-up construction. While tilt-up is still the dominant method used for big box distribution centers and manufacturing facilities, its application continues to expand.

Tilt-up is used for many architecturally pleasing buildings, such as multi-story offices, retail centers, schools and federal buildings. During the presentation, I’ll discuss some of the special architectural features that can be used on tilt-up buildings, including curved panels, irregular panel shapes, embedded materials and thin brick.
