FAQs about Tilt Lift Panels

Q?

Can you give me a quote over the phone?

A.

Unfortunately not.
You see, each building design is unique, with engineered specifications in steel , mesh sizes ,steel layering and panel thickness varying for each project it is not possible to do a quote without this relevant information.

Q?

What if I send you a drawing of the building? Can you give me a quote then?

A.

No, Drawings do not show that the engineering requirements of the building will be.
E.G. : Thickness of panels. Steel and Reinforcing requirements.
Each plan has to be specific to tilt lift panel construction.

Q?

Can the plans for a brick building be used for Tilt - Lift?

A.

No. once again, specific construction requirements are applied to different methods of building.

Q?

Compared to other building methods, are tilt panels cost effective?

A.

Absolutely. The buildings are erected quickly and efficiently are less labour intensive, can be built to boundaries so more land is utilized, fire rating and insulation is achieved more readily and the larger the building the more costs effective tilt panels construction becomes

Q?

Can tilt panels be built anywhere?

A.

No.
When planning a Tilt - Lift job, access is the biggest issue as there needs to be enough ground for panels to be poured and cranes to move safely to lift the panels , considerations also need to be made in some instances because of neighbors and overhead power lines and safety in general

Q?

What about repairs and additions?

A.

If damage occurs to the building, E.G. : By Forklift etc. The damage is localized and is usually easy to repair. As well because tilt buildings are modular in design they are easy to expand.
