How Much Does a Tilt-Up Building Cost?

Choosing the right construction methods and materials can save millions in the long run

Tilt-up construction can save building owners more money than you may think. Studies show that the total cost to construct a building is between 5 and 10% of the actual amount paid to own and operate it. That means if you’re spending $1,000,000 on your new building’s construction, the cost when factoring in other long-term expenses such as maintenance and operating costs can be as high as $10,000,000.

Tilt-up construction allows for cost-conscious builders and owners to create an exceptional building at a better price while also tackling the elephant in the room – the massive costs required to operate the building and the large sums that can be saved over the long term.
