Tilt-Up Award graphic with tilt-up panel

HGC Construction was recently recognized with a Tilt-Up Achievement Award from the Tilt-Up Concrete Association. The award was in recognition of the work completed at CubeSmart Self Storage.

Founded in 1986, the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) strives to improve the quality and acceptance of site-cast Tilt-Up construction—one of the fastest growing industries in the United States. The tilt-up technique combines the advantages of reasonable cost with low maintenance, durability, speed of construction and minimal capital investment.

At CubeSmart, the HGC crew used tilt-up construction in a unique manner. Instead of merely pouring concrete, standing up the slabs, and painting them, a brick facade was cast-in with the tilt panels. The bricks were laid face down, then the concrete was poured on top of that. The project also used a wide variety of form liners to achieve an eye-catching texture in the building’s facade.

Our thanks go out to every team member involved with this project, including the team of masonry and concrete subcontractors from Structural Systems Repair Group. Our commitment to excellence and craftsmanship is seen in their work, and we are grateful that others in our industry are recognizing their great effort.
