Structure Tone Southwest is now one of only a handful of contractors across the country to become a Certified Tilt-Up Company.
Led by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association, this certification focuses on safety and quality control in using the “tilt-up” construction method, which involves casting and erecting concrete wall panels on site and then “tilting” them up into position. This approach allows for much larger walls panels to be cast at one time and removes the need to transport them from off site, which translates into schedule and cost savings.
“Tilt-up construction is increasingly being recognized as a safe and efficient way to build new buildings,” says Joseph Cribbin, president of Structure Tone Southwest. “We are extremely proud to earn this certification and to formally join this exclusive network of tilt-up experts.”
Structure Tone Southwest earned the achievement after a three-part application process that analyzed the company’s safety and quality control programs, employee training, insurance coverage and project experience, among other criteria. The company, who has offices in Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio, has built well over a dozen tilt-up projects, including the new 54,000sf headquarters for the American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) in Irving.
