There has been a lot of discussion around ’tilt-up’ construction lately.
This summer the UBC Baseball Indoor Training Centre celebrates two years since its completion.
Structurally, the 13,000 sq ft state-of-the-art complex is the first of its kind. It features a glulam / LSL composite tilt-up wall system with drop in place, prefabricated roof panels.
The building is one of the first known examples that hinges a mass-timber tilt-up wall panel system as a means to cost-compete with traditional tilt-up concrete applications.
Watch the video below to see how it all happened.
We can’t believe it’s been three years since the completion of the Ronald McDonald House in Vancouver.
RMHBC was the first building to use CLT walls in a ’tilt-up’ balloon-frame application.
Happy Tilt-Up Thursday!
