Other interesting points: Tilt-up was originally chosen for this project because of its smooth interior walls and the ease of cleaning. Do to the nature of the project all walls had to be a sandwich panel and the interior of the walls was to remain concrete, a perfect fit for a tilt-up project. Original project schedule was 6 months but using tilt-up was completed in only 3 months!
