You see them all over, usually near freeways – enormous concrete buildings covering several acres and often surrounded by rows of semi-trailers. These buildings primarily house industrial, warehouse and office activities and can have interior clear heights (the unobstructed height from the floor to the underside of the roof framing) of 36 feet or more. Tilt-up walls are strong and secure yet require less labor and are built much faster than other traditional forms of construction such as masonry walls. Wright Engineers is the structural engineer for millions of square feet of tilt-up buildings, including about 2.5 million square feet just recently completed or currently under construction.
