Other interesting points: This home is the first Residential Site Cast Tilt-Up Project in Ontario.
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.
