Vancouver Ready Mix Pours Concrete for Integrated Construction
At Vancouver Ready Mix, we’re known for working with innovative companies and techniques that will ensure our clients will not only have their projects completed on time, but also on budget. Before we begin a new project, our experts analyze and research which methods will do the job effectively. Quality, time, and cost-efficiency are always the principles we build around.
Tilt-up Precast Construction Design
One of the most tried and true techniques in concrete construction is tilt-up precast construction. This type of design is known for being energy-efficient, plus it provides resistance to erosion from water, wind, fire, or earthquakes. Also referred to as on-site precast, this type of building technique is when the concrete walls are poured horizontally on-site. Once cured, the concrete is tilted into a vertical position with a crane and braced into position until the remaining structural components are secured.
The exciting CODE Electric project by Integrated Construction is using this technique for the new 44,000 sq. ft. building in Port Coquitlam that will be the headquarters for the company. This facility will be the hub for CODE Electric’s sheet metal manufacturing warehousing, and distribution.
Integrated Construction was founded in 1991 by Eldon Ortlieb and is known for their industrial, commercial, and retail-based building construction spanning all the way from Fort McMurray to Vancouver Island. Josh Gaglardi, Manager of Business Development at Integrated Construction reports, “As concrete tilt up construction is becoming recognized as a benchmark standard for industrial, commercial, and institutional applications across BC and the lower mainland, it is important to create meaningful partnerships with your ready mix concrete supplier to ensure exemplary product quality and consistency along with the ability to maintain your budget and schedules.”
