Tilt Up is constructing walls horizontally, on the ground, and then lifting them into place. This method is used on the new Pick n Pay warehouse construction site.
The design of a tilt-up building incorporates the detailing of the columns and/or the wall panel to provide all the functional and architectural features of the building. Temporary ground slabs are casted and specialised formwork is produced to precise dimensions as demanded by the detailed design.
Purpose-designed lifting inserts and stay anchors are positioned and cast into the elements. The several casting beds required for the project are strategically positioned to align with the overall project plan and to enable efficient use of the crane.
The video discusses the whole process of Tilt Up panels.
