Tilt-Up Buildings Seismic Retrofit

What Are Tilt-Up Buildings?

Tilt-up construction was very common after World War II. This style of construction is cost-effective and involves pouring the walls of a building directly at the jobsite. Once they are set, they are then raised or tilted into place. This was a way for construction workers to quickly and easily keep up with the demand for new business in California post-war.

Why Your Tilt-Up Building Needs Retrofitting

Because each wall is only crafted from concrete and has limited or weak connections between the walls, it can make them very susceptible to damage during an earthquake. In fact, since the 1970s, this construction method has been proven to fail during earthquakes.

If your building is crafted this way, it doesn’t mean you need to do a complete overhaul. At National Seismic Retrofit, we have worked with tilt-up buildings for years, learning the ins and outs of this technique to better craft retrofitting.

Retrofitting for tilt-up buildings can take the existing structure and make it more secure. Using state-of-the-art materials and careful engineering, we can help your building stand secure during earthquakes while lowering insurance premiums at the same time.
