Joe Vella is much like any other person in Ontario. He wants his lifestyle to be more sustainable, reduce his monthly expenses and use the talents of local experts.

Vella’s new home in Burk’s Falls would be built on these principles. “We were looking to make the most efficient home that we could,” explained Vella. “We wanted to build a home that didn’t require any heat at all and came up with a design that we thought could achieve it. That was the easy part – finding a way to build it was more challenging.”

The off-grid one-storey home design was unlike any other, with durable concrete construction, off-grid components, large south-facing patio doors, airy lofts and two curving steel roofs.
Vella was reading about concrete construction methods and came across Tilt Wall. He quickly reached out. “They were very enthusiastic to do this project,” added Vella. “We had people quote on this, and they didn’t obviously want to do the job. Tilt Wall was fair. They gave me a good price and they really got involved in the project.”

Project Description

Since tilt-up construction uses R20 continuous sandwich panel construction without any thermal bridging, a concrete home is much more energy-efficient than a wood-frame house.

From the outside, the 6-bedroom, and 2,900 sq. ft. house is indistinguishable from a conventionally-built residence. This first tilt-up home in Ontario will be more than 30 per cent more energy-efficient than a traditional wood-frame house.

Tilt-up construction is already being used for residential projects in the US and on Canada’s West Coast. We are confident that it can be a great option for Ontario home builders as well. After the success with this first residential project, Tiltwall is ready to make their mark in the residential sector.
