The durability and speed of tilt-up construction played a role in being the chosen method of construction for this project. Designed to house the fire suppression pump and system for the Cavanaugh Transfer Station, using the fireproof properties of tilt-up was a natural selection. The energy efficiencies of tilt-up will also ensure the building does not freeze in the winter and compromise the integrity of the pumping system.
